Arm bpm monitors vs. wrist bpm monitors

Q: I find it difficult to take my blood pressure, I have an arm type monitor, but would the wrist or finger monitors do the same job? I am 73 and do not take any medication or ever see a doctor so I’m not sure if i have a problem or not.

A: You should know your blood pressure. It is worth a visit to the doctor to find out this important health information. Many feel that wrist monitors are not as accurate as arm blood pressure monitors. The secret with both is to make sure you carefully follow the instructions for cuff placement.
