Automatic Blood Pressure Monitor
Automatic Wrist Blood Pressure Monitor
Manual (wall mount/stand) Blood Pressure Monitor
Manual Blood Pressure Monitor
All the automatic equipment are easy to use. Within seconds, we would have the reading. However if the failed to have a correct reading to the fluctuation of systolic or diastolic, it will automatically re pump itself until an appropriate reading is detected. Personally I would prefer the Manual Blood Pressure Monitor.
** Systolic = is an ancient medical term first understood as a gathering of blood and later contraction of the heart. More recently it is understood as a force that drives blood out of the heart and diastolic is the period of time when the heart refills with blood after systole (contraction).
**Diastole is the period during which the ventricles are relaxing,properly, the machine will then re pump itself).
