Though an automated blood pressure monitor is very convenient, it is like a black box when it determines your blood pressure. It just shows you final blood pressure readings. According to published clinical studies, home blood pressure monitors can be very inaccurate on 29% of patients. However, blood pressure can be measured and determined manually by auscultation of the sounds of blood flow in your branchial artery during cuff deflation. In accutension, all the information required for blood pressure determination is transparent, so you own the accuracy of blood pressure measurement.
Accutension blood pressure kit has a high quality manual pump with a very sensitive valve. You will find you can operate the manual pump and valve by yourself though some practice is needed. You will control the deflation rate by yourself. A deflation rate at 2-4 mmHg per second is perfect.
