Pressure Pushing Down on Me, Pressing Down on You
Living with a chronic illness can be expensive. Even more so when you don't have access to health insurance. So when I saw this Blood Pressure Wrist Cuff by #WristBPM_EBP017 I knew it would be something I would like to test and review. The hope was that it would work well enough for us to be able to check general blood pressure and potentially track results find patterns. If we come to a doctor appointment with data that shows a trend, the doctor is more open to different possibilities or medications or further testing. And when you can't afford the doctor visits in the frequency that is needed, this data is invaluable.
I deny the allegations of user error.
The downside of this cuff is the way the cuff velcro is on both sides. It is difficult to explain, but when you put the cuff on the velcro attaches like you would expect it to. But then you have to fold the end of the cuff back over nothing and there is another velcro attachment. It makes no sense.
All in all, this is good for gathering data. It is not as accurate as the ones in a doctor office or the ones using an arm cuff. I do plan to continue to use this to check for any potential patterns that might indicate there is an issue that needs to be looked at by my doctor.
