I remember this device; this is my sis-in-law Angie’s Christmas gift to my brother Evan last December – a digital blood pressure monitor. My brother has been diagnosed with hypertension and been advised to watch his BP regularly for the reason that hypertension when left untreated can cause heart attacks, strokes and kidney failure. He need to have this blood pressure monitor because the only way for him you to know if he has normal, high or low blood pressure is to have it measured. Angie preferred to buy digital blood pressure monitor because not only it is the most popular measuring device but also it is automatic and is easier to use than the aneroid unit. The measurement is easy to read since the numbers are shown on a screen. This type of blood pressure monitoring device is recommended best for hearing-impaired patients also, since there is no need to listen to heart sounds through the stethoscope.
