What is Omron M2 Basic Upper Arm Blood Pressure Monitor?
The Omron M2 is a fully automatic blood pressure monitor that will give you accurate readings quickly and accurately without causing discomfort. The M2 has been clinically validated, which means that it has been tested by independent doctors to determine its quality. This monitor has a clear LCD display which makes it easy to get the readings quickly. It also has built-in memory which records the last reading. The M2 has what is known as IntelliSense Technology, which works to inflate the cuff only as necessary and it adjusts to maintain comfort when using.
What does the Omron M2 come with?
In the box, you will receive:
- The M2 Monitor
- 1 Medium sized cuff
- 4 x AA batteries
- A guarantee card
- Blood pressure diary
Please note that the cuff is only suitable for arm circumferences between 22cm-32cm. If your arm is bigger, then you will need the Omron large cuff, which is sold separately.
Why should pressure be monitored?
The reason why you should monitor your blood pressure is that you may have high or low blood pressure. High blood pressure can put pressure on the organs which increases the risk of a heart attack or a stroke. Low blood pressure is not as serious in most cases, but it can cause dizziness or fainting. There are no obvious symptoms of whether you have high or low blood pressure without testing. When it comes to blood pressure, there are 2 readings:
- Systolic pressure – the pressure that blood pushed out by the heart
- Diastolic pressure – The pressure when your heart rests at between beats
The readings from a blood pressure monitor will be systolic pressure over diastolic pressure. This will show as 140/90mmHg for example, which means that the systolic pressure is 140mmHg and the diastolic pressure is 90mmHg. If your reading was this, then you would have high blood pressure. Normal blood pressure is between 90/60mmHg and 120/80mmHg, with low blood pressure being below 90/60mmHg.
Who is the Omron M2 suitable for?
This blood pressure monitor is suitable to be used by anyone who is looking for a monitor that will easily help to keep tabs on their blood pressure. If you are over 40, then it recommended that you have a blood pressure test conducted by the NHS every 5 years, or more often if you are at risk of serious problems.
How should the Omron M2 Basic Upper Arm Blood Pressure Monitor be used?
Use the monitor as instructed in the included manual in order to get a reading. If your reading says that you have high or low blood pressure, then you should go and see your doctor in order to determine what should be done next.
