Reliable and accurate blood pressure monitors
A blood pressure monitor must be reliable and accurate. You must be confident that the measured blood pressure values are correct. In accordance with European legislation, every blood pressure monitor must bear a CE mark. The device complies with the European standard and has been found to be safe. However, a CE marking is not a quality mark for reliability. So you know that the blood pressure monitor works, but not whether the measurements are reliable. The blood pressure monitors that the blood pressure monitor shop offers in its range are clinically validated. This means that the blood pressure monitors have been independently tested for reliability on real patients. We then know that the measured blood pressure values are very reliable. A good blood pressure monitor must meet at least 1 of the 3 international standards. These are the European Society of Hypertension (ESH), British and Irish Hypertension Society (BIHS) and American Medical Association (AMA). The blood pressure monitors and the underlying research results are listed on the international validation lists of StrideBP and Dabl.
If the blood pressure monitor is listed on the StrideBP validation list, the blood pressure monitor is recommended by the Dutch Heart Foundation. In our webshop you can easily see whether the blood pressure monitor is recommended. You will then see a label with the logo of the Dutch Heart Foundation next to the blood pressure monitor in question.
Buy a suitable blood pressure monitor
Blood pressure can be measured in two different ways, namely on the upper arm or on the wrist. There are separate meters that you can buy for this, the upper arm blood pressure monitor and the wrist blood pressure monitor.
The most commonly used blood pressure monitor is the upper arm blood pressure monitor. This is because it has an important advantage over the wrist blood pressure monitor. To measure blood pressure properly, it is important to move as little as possible. Every movement influences the measurement result. The measurement of blood pressure on the upper arm is least sensitive to errors due to movement. With the wrist blood pressure monitor, this chance is many times greater, because the pulse should be kept at the height of the heart. It is then difficult to keep the arm still for a longer period of time. GPs and the Heart Foundation therefore recommend buying and using an upper arm blood pressure monitor.
However, a wrist blood pressure monitor can measure just as accurately. Wrist blood pressure monitors are also clinically validated and are also listed on StrideBP's validation list.
Why measure blood pressure?
Regular blood pressure measurement is very important for your health. If your blood pressure is too high, you have an increased risk of cardiovascular disease. If you have very low blood pressure, you may experience symptoms such as fatigue and dizziness. This is because the brain does not receive enough blood and therefore oxygen. It is therefore essential that you regularly measure your blood pressure. It is therefore also recommended by the Dutch Heart Foundation to check your blood pressure at least once a year after your 40th birthday.
