Digital blood pressure monitors is now more popular than the older version and more commonly used BP monitor by doctors and professional health worker. It is because reading the results is now easier and even ordinary individual can easily use it.
These days, many people prefer the digital blood pressure monitors as they can carry it as well to anywhere they go, so even if they are vacationing or in the office the compact function of the health monitor can make it very easy to bring along in the backpack or handbag. The only thing that owners need to be aware is that these BP monitors are sensitive and therefore must be properly secure when not in use.
The digital blood pressure monitors can display also the diastolic and the systolic readings on the screen, and most of all the readings are comprehensible right away. In addition, the digital monitors, nowadays, also have a recorded history of your blood pressure which you can upload into the computer or print out to show your doctor.
Take note, despite the advancement of the digital blood pressure monitors know that it works the same ways as the traditional sphygmomanometers the most widely used BP monitor and still use by physician. The difference between the traditional and the digital is in the fact that the latter is automatic.
As said awhile ago, the digital works the same way wherein the cuff will also inflate but this time automatically, and of course the digital monitor just like the traditional monitor works by also measuring the heart rate by the vibration it picked up as the pressure slowly depressurized by the cuff.
I guess, the greatest advantage of the digital blood pressure monitors is the accuracy in readings that it provides. But of course, if you really want accurate results then never take BP in the morning as the blood pressure is always at the highest, also never smoke or drink 30 minutes prior to the testing as the heart rate definitely increase when you indulge in your habit. Take note of this so you always get accurate results.
