Q4: Is an arm blood pressure monitor more accurate than a wrist one?
Both of these two types must match the same stringent specifications for accuracy.
Blood Pressure: +/- 3 mmHg; Pulse Rate: +/- 5%;
The choice of device basically depends on the convenience for use. Some people find the compactness of a wrist blood pressure monitor a benefit for traveling. While others prefer the larger buttons and display on the arm blood pressure monitors (easier to use and read).
Q5:What can be done to lower my blood pressure?
A balanced diet with plenty of fruit, fresh vegetables, potatoes and rice is a mustbe, avoiding animal fats, eating less salt, drinking less alcohol, doing more physical exercises and no more smoking.
