Omron HEM-773AC Automatic Blood Pressure Monitor

Omron HEM-773AC blood pressure monitorThe HEM-773AC is one of Omron's range of six automatic blood pressure monitors, and is distinguished by the inclusion of an "easy wrap cuff".

According to the Omron website:

No more messing with arm cuffs that are difficult to wrap. The new Easy Wrap Cuff is designed for a quick and proper fit. Now, taking your blood pressure has become even easier. Simply wrap the cuff around your arm and press START. In seconds, your blood pressure and pulse are displayed on the large digital display.

The HEM-7773AC has been tested, evaluated and proven to meet the rigorous safety and accuracy standards set by independent organizations.

Automatic blood pressure monitors are affordable, accurate and simple to use. This monitor automatically inflates with the push of a button. And only Omron blood pressure monitors have IntelliSense technology to automatically determine the correct amount of pressure required to quickly and comfortably measure your blood pressure reading. The result is accurate measurements every time.

According to a product description at Amazon.com :

The Easy-Wrap cuff is designed for a quick and proper fit for any arm size between nine and 17 inches in circumference. Taking your blood pressure just got a little bit easier -- simply wrap cuff around your arm and press start. In seconds your blood pressure and pulse are displayed on the large digital panel. Proven time and time again, Omron's IntelliSense technology ensures accurate, clinically-proven, and comfortable readings. And with the two-person, 21-memory recall, you can track your blood pressure and pulse progress as you work towards a healthier lifestyle.

Unfortunately it is difficult to find on the internet independent reviews of products such as blood pressure monitors. Probably the best source comes from the user reviews at sales site like Amazon.com. Though hardly scientific, these reviews give some excellent insight into how the product actually works in a real-life home environment.

In late-2009 around 40 purchasers had reviewed the HEM-773AC at Amazon.com, with an average rating of four-and-a-half stars (out of five). Here are three reviews:

* I had been on the lookout for a blood pressure monitor for some time now - I used to own a portable and somewhat gimmicky machine whose readings were all over the place. I bought the HEM-773AC after I saw it used at my doctor's office and also in the hospital.

Very easy to use, consistent and accurate readings. I have compared the measurements from this unit with an old-fashioned manual mercury sphygmomanometer read by my father (a doctor). Readings were identical. That level of accuracy and the ease of use are all I care about.

Highly recommended, and a must have in every household.

* This bp monitor is very easy to use. Just put the cuff on your upper arm, as directed, push the start button, remain still and your bp is read. I did, however, take it in to my dr.'s office and the monitor was reading higher than the office reading. The dr. said that's usual for these at-home monitors. I like this product and am happy I purchased it. I'd recommend it to anyone who wants to monitor their bp at home.

* I've used Omron Auto-Inflate Blood Pressure Monitors for about 20 years. This is my second unit. The units are very accurate, durable, and as a rule easily used. This new unit has a semi pre-formed cuff which I find harder to get properly fitted on my arm and occasional error messages appear. Outside of this, it is an excellent unit, compact and accurate!
