Taking your blood pressure is simple with the M3 monitor. The M3 has a wide cuff (22–42 cm) that can be adjusted to suit a variety of arm sizes, and the cuff wrapping guide icon lights up when the cuff is wrapped correctly, allowing you to feel more confident about the accuracy of your results. The M3 is also equipped with a memory function that allows for two users to store up to 60 readings each. Accuracy as well as comfort is ensured with Intellisense technology, which always inflates the cuff to the peak pressure that is tailored to your own blood pressure level, ensuring a more comfortable measurement.
Hypertension – what is blood pressure?
- The heart is a very powerful pump that beats steadily
- The pressure created by the heart to pump the blood through the blood vessels is called blood pressure
- When the heart muscle contracts the blood surges through the arteries – this is when the systolic (upper) blood pressure value occurs
- The diastolic (lower) value is the resting pressure before the heart contracts again
- Ideally your blood pressure should be below 140/85 mmHg
There are approximately 16 million people in the UK with high blood pressure, however nearly two thirds are not aware of the fact, which is understandable when there are no symptoms. However, if left, high blood pressure can lead to strokes and heart problems.
Why choose an OMRON blood pressure monitor?
Every OMRON blood pressure monitor is tested for accuracy against the clinical guidelines for measuring blood pressure that are specified by the European Society of Hypertension. A clinically validated monitor means that it has undergone tests conducted by independent doctors according to a predetermined protocol, which includes ensuring the accuracy of the measurements (algorithm) of the blood pressure monitors.
OMRON Intellisense is an advanced technology for blood pressure measurement. An Intellisense monitor inflates the cuff to the ideal level for each use, meaning that each reading has a personalised inflation level that is right for the user.
Benefits of the OMRON M3
- An Intellisense monitor inflates the cuff to the ideal level with each use
- No adjustments are required by the user to select an inflation level
- Especially convenient for hypertensive users because their blood pressure is likely to fluctuate
- Personalised inflation for maximum comfort and accurate results
The technology – easy high blood pressure indicator
Interpreting blood pressure results is difficult, and many people get confused as to whether their level is healthy. With the easy high blood pressure indicator, an orange light indicates whether your blood pressure is above the normal range. This helps you to interpret your results more easily.
According to the blood pressure classification by the International Society of Hypertension (1999)
