Best Blood Pressure Monitors

Omron HEM-780 blood pressure monitorWhich is the best blood pressure monitor? Much of course depends on your particular requirements. Even the most popular models have their detractors, and may not be exactly right for your needs.

Certainly Omron makes the most popular models, with an estimated 65% share of the US market, and high percentages elsewhere around the world.

A report in US Pharmacist journal (no longer online) stated that other companies "producing high-quality, clinically tested monitors" included A&D Medical/LifeSource, Lumiscope, Mark of Fitness, Panasonic and Samsung.

In June 2003, Consumer Reports journal reviewed home blood pressure monitors. This report is for subscribers only. However, some of its recommendations have found their way onto other websites. (Note that some of the models in the report have been superseded by newer units and are no longer available.)

Thus, according to an article in the Clinical Diabetes journal, "The number one recommended automatic inflation monitor was the Omron Intellisense HEM-711AC."

In 2004 the Pharmacist's Letter/Prescriber's Letter said in "Home Blood Pressure Monitors" that, among automatic arm units, the "products rated most highly by Consumer Reports" were:

Omron Intellisense HEM-711AC
Omron HEM-712C
• ReliOn HEM-741CREL
Lifesource One Step UA-767V

It said two manual arm units were "equally rated by Consumer Reports":

• Lifesource Manual Inflation BPM UA-702V, UA-702VL
• Lumiscope Semi-Automatic BPM 1060

And it said that one automatic wrist unit was "rated most highly by Consumer Reports":

• Omron HEM-637

In May 2005, Choice magazine, which is the Australian equivalent of Consumer Reports, published its own survey of blood pressure monitors. The top-rated model in Australia was the Lifesource UA-767.

In May 2007 the five top-selling blood pressure monitors at Amazon.com were:

1. Omron HEM-780 Automatic Blood Pressure Monitor with ComFit Cuff (picture)

2. Omron HEM-711AC Automatic Blood Pressure Monitor with IntelliSense

3. Omron HEM-650 Wrist Blood Pressure Monitor with APS (Advanced Positioning Sensor)

4. Omron HEM-712C Automatic Blood Pressure Monitor with IntelliSense

5. Mark of Fitness MF-83 Wrist Blood Pressure Monitor
