I think my blood pressure needs to be checked after this one...


The screen look like it may be hard to see, anyone know if it is?

How long does it take for the read, anyone know?

I have a feeling it's going to be hard to find a good set of product reviews on this one. I'm trying though. It DOES look new-agey. That's neat.

I used to do a daily woot blog where I talk about the woot, link to CSEs, find reviews, etc. A few people have told me it was useful.

These are good because knowledge is power and knowing is half the battle.

Or it's just a good idea to test these sorts of things out.

Would have bought this last week, when my doc told me to buy one.

But I bought one last week, and I only have one upper arm.

Well, not really, but I do have one I just bought at double the price.

Hard Disk: 20MB
RAM: 16mb, 32mb recommended
Processor: 80468CPU with 50MHz, 75MHz recommended

I think it would be safe to sum that up with "a computer"
Seriously, 75MHz recommended, with 32mb ram? Imagine Vista trying to run on that...
And sorry, but I'm pretty sure the 80468 never existed. Who writes this stuff?

Will this work on my dog? Hear me out here: I have a small terrier, whose midsection is no larger than the typical adult male's arm. Assuming I can find numbers online for the desired blood pressure for the little guy, will this product work? It is still being wrapped around flesh, blood veins, etc. Should be a similar type deal, right?

how acurate are these things?

My dad could use one . . .also he is pretty big. do the measurements sounds like they would be good for a big fella?

Have to pass on this behemoth, I LOVE my wrist one, kicks Butt, way smaller.
PLUS the numbers match the "Mondo Mercury One" on the wall @ my Cardiologists Office.
Wooted the wrist one, (Mark of Fitness) if it comes up again, I'm in for another for Dad.

Really depends on the cuff size... if cuff is too small for your dad's arm, you'll get falsely high readings

I've been enjoying shopping on Woot for a couple of years now, and I'm well over 30.

And, unfortunately, in need of one of these!

Ummm..actually no. This thing works by reading the pumping of blood, right? Don't dogs have beating hearts too? I know my little guy does because I see the love in his eyes when I walk in the door. There must be some conversion numbers somewhere online. I can't believe this won't work on my little guy. I'll make sure to do it on an empty stomach of course. (his stomach; mine can be full I guess)

No, it wont. this cannot be wrapped around midsection, even if you do, it will be dangerous for your dog. Try some of the smaller wrist BP cuffs around its leg.

The problem is that the dog breathes... if you put it around his chest, it would probably work more like a Boa Constrictor on him, and you'd still never get an accurate reading. Would funny to watch though...

This must be for tracking our rising blood pressure on the next Woot-off!! If you see the big spike that's where you missed the Boiled Out Caramel

Wow.

Just found out today that my pregnant wife's blood pressure is a tad high and they want us to monitor it daily, so I was pricing these things out this afternoon.

I'm tempted.... The price looks great compared to the same item at Target or Amazon, etc., but I haven't ever heard of the brand and I can't find a single review for it.

I'll sleep on it....

You snooze, you loose. Well I have snost and lost.

I have this unit about a year and have compared its readings right next to my Dr's results and it was with in 3 points of what he got doing it the old fashion way. The Dr was happy with the results and I use it once daily to monitor my hypertension issues (two teenage daughter at home). Easy to use and results in less than 2 min. Only issue I had was the cuff was to small, I'm 6'5'' 400 lbs, 22" arms, but after contacting the manufacture they sent me a bigger cuff and all is good.

You should take the readings after setting for 15 min and be sure to put the cuff in the same place every time, this takes a little practice. No more concerns for the high readings at the Dr office as I would be nervous, now I can show the Dr a few weeks of tests for a much more accurate diagnoses and adjustment of my meds if needed. I do recommend this monitor if ya need one.

Too bad the other 2 blood pressure monitors I wooted are still working. Or I would buy this for sure.
