Omron HEM-711AC for Blood Pressure and Heart Rhythm Control

By 

from Cleveland, OH

Comments about Omron HEM-711AC Automatic Blood Pressure Monitor:

One cause of atrial fibrillation is hypertension.  Because I have paroxysmal afib, I have been advised by my electrophysiolgist to take my blood pressure and pulse readings daily.  By submitting the readings to the doctor, he can adjust my blood pressure medications to keep my blood pressure and pulse rate in check and hopefully prevent an afib episode from occurring.I used to have an older style Omron blood pressure monitor, but I needed a monitor that would confirm that I was experiencing an irregular heartbeat.  **The Omron Automatic Blood Pressure Monitor, Model HEM-711AC **with Intellisense fit the bill perfectly.  When the monitor detects that my heartbeat is in afib, an Irregular Heartbeat Symbol will appear on the display.  The symbol is a heart with two lines to the right of the heart which gives the appearance of a "shaky heart".  This symbol will appear if my heart rhythm is 25% faster or 25% slower than the average rhythm detected while the unit is measuring my blood pressure.The only complaint I have with the **Omron HEM-711AC **is when I am experiencing a very fast, erratic heartbeat in afib, the monitor will display an "E" which means it could not detect my pulse wave and a blood pressure reading could not be obtained.  Consequently, I have no readings to relay to my doctor when I call him to tell him I am in afib.My regular daily readings are no problem.  To ensure a correct blood pressure reading, I avoid eating, drinking, exercising, or bathing for 30 minutes prior to a measurement.  I rest for about 10 - 15 minutes before I place on the cuff.  I sit on my chair with my feet flat on the floor and I remove any clothing from my right arm.  I rest my right arm on my desk with the cuff being placed at heart level. 

Taking a measurement is very easy - after the cuff is placed on my arm according to the instructions in the manual, I press the Start/Stop button and the cuff inflates automatically.  I remain still until the measurement is completed.  At this time, the cuff deflates and my blood pressure and pulse rate are displayed.   I take two measurements 3 minutes apart.  The second measurement is the one I record to submit to my doctor.  If my blood pressure is above 135 for the systolic reading or above 85 for the diastolic reading, a heartbeat symbol on the monitor which flashes during your measurement will continue to flash when the measurement is completed.The **Omron HEM711AC **has a date and time feature that can be set and is very helpful.  However, the best feature I like about this monitor is the Memory Function.  The monitor stores up to 60 sets of blood pressure and pulse rate readings.  It automatically calculates the average reading based on the three most recent values taken within ten minutes of the last reading.  I can delete these readings daily, weekly, or whenever I wish.You will not find another monitor for the price that is so user friendly and accurate.

Thank you for reading my review.

Checking your blood pressure at home is now easier than ever.

By 

from Boca Raton, FL

Comments about Omron HEM-711AC Automatic Blood Pressure Monitor:

When my hubby started experiencing high blood pressure, and had difficulty controlling it, I decided it was time to buy a good, reliable blood pressure monitor.  As usual, I searched online and read reviews and opted to buy this Omron model.

This is the #1 selling blood pressure monitor in the U.S.  It is extremely easy to use.  You simply wrap the cuff around your arm and press the start button.  In just seconds, your blood pressure and pulse readings are displayed on the large digital panel.

Doctor asked hubby to record his blood pressure several times a day and record the readings.  So, yes, he uses the monitor at least three times a day.  It has worked perfectly for over 18 months. 

How do I know that it is providing an accurate reading?  Well, we took it to the doctor's offce and after they took his blood pressure with their equipment, we took it again with our Omron.  The results were almost identical.  That tells me that the readings are indeed accurate.

Having the capability of getting accurate blood pressure readings in the comfort of your own home is a necessity, not a luxiry. 

I would highly recommend this brand and model.

The Omron HEM 711 is Reliable and easy to use

By 

from Smyrna, TN

Comments about Omron HEM-711AC Automatic Blood Pressure Monitor:

When my husband was diagnosed with high blood pressure we had to start monitoring it daily and did not have an idea what was a good monitor.  We bought the Omron and have been very pleased with it.  We both use it daily to monitor routine blood pressure but also to check it when we exercise so we can see what it is doing.

We took it with us to the doctor this year just to make sure we were getting the same range of readings and our doctor said it was a great monitor... so now we really are comfortable knowing that the information we have is accurate and we can do it as often as we like - when we like.

 

And I feel better monitoring my husband's health too.  We are now starting to take it with us on trips so we never miss a day without checking our blood pressure.  I also like that it retains the last few readings so we can easily compare especially when we are on the road.

I would recommend this to any and all of my friends.

wonderful

Comments about Omron HEM-711AC Automatic Blood Pressure Monitor:

**Omron HEM-711AC Automatic Blood Pressure Monitor **is just so wonderful, i don't even no what to say. i have a product like that it's measure my blood pressure acurately.high blood pressure is a major problem today and the biggest difficulty with this serious and often life-threatening condition is that it rarely displays any symptoms at all. For this reason, it is vital that we all have our blood pressure checked from time to time and there is no easier way to do that nowadays than by using your own home blood pressureModern automatic monitors are simple to use and most have large digital readouts which are also very easy to read. Many also have memory facilities which allow you to keep a record or your blood pressure readings over time and sometimes to print these out or to load them into your computer where they can be plotted into a clear graphical picture.One big problem for many people is choosing an automatic difgital blood preesure machine which suits their need .
