We recommend that you check blood pressure frequently, at least several times per
week. The arm cuffs are the most reliable blood pressure monitors while the ones
that go on the wrist are not consistently reliable. Most pharmacies will carry
blood pressure monitors, and also you can find them at Wal-Mart, Best Buy, etc.
The following are 4 monitors that have been reviewed by Consumer Reports. If you
have a large arm, it may be necessary to order a large blood pressure cuff. A cuff
that is too small will give you an artificially inflated blood pressure, and it
will always seem as if your blood pressure is too high with that cuff.
