I just had heart surgery that didn't go so well. Then, because we didn't pay enough to Cobra, we got our insurance canceled.
The processes of my Heart condition let me know that without regular doctor care, I really did need to monitor my BP. I used the monitor for 2 months, and was pleased to find that it actually checked me a bit higher in BP rates than the doctor.
My doctor, when i finally got some money to see him, said that it is a good monitor, as it would be better to give me a slightly higher reading than a reading that said everything was fine when it was not!
I still have Atrial Fibrilation, and know when it happens. The monitor has got it right every time! I was a bit hesitant in buying the monitor, since I do not have a job, medical insurance, and I am very close to loosing my home, but the knowledge of my blood pressure on a regular basis really gives me piece of mind! About 56 bucks well spent!
It even plugs the data into my computer, and can be set to add another person, and keep the records for 99 times each!
I love it!
