Heart disease continues to be the number one cause of death in the United States. That’s why most doctors in America recommend that every person over 40 years old should monitor their blood pressure on a weekly basis.

One of the first things I tell my patients is to purchase a reliable blood pressure monitor,

says Dr. Simon J. Stewart, MD, a cardiologist from the University of Miami Cardiovascular Division.

In just 2 minutes or less, an automatic blood pressure monitor can accurately determine a person’s blood pressure. Therefore anyone can quickly determine if their blood pressure is too high or low which can become an early indicator of a potential health issue.

As a rule of thumb, ideal blood pressure for adults should be between 90/60mmHg and 120/80mmHg. Any reading over 130/80mm Hg is considered to be stage 1 of high blood pressure. If high blood pressure persists over time it greatly increases the risk of heart conditions, stroke, kidney diseases, vascular dementia and even Alzheimer’s disease.

When it comes to blood pressure issues, prevention has proven to be the best medicine. And the key to prevention lies in monitoring. With a reliable blood pressure monitor you can continuously relay your readings with your doctors and possibly prevent or treat life threatening diseases.

I always recommend patients to check their blood pressure monitor’s accuracy by bringing it to their doctor’s office so they can compare and revise it with a manual blood pressure reading,

says Dr. Simon. However, after thoroughly testing the products featured below we have selected the devices that have provided the most accurate readings over time.
