If you need futher guidance regarding various things to consider while purchasing BP Monitor, please read our Conzumr Guide
The World Heart Federation estimates that almost a billion people worldwide suffer from high blood pressure or hypertension that can lead to increased risks of heart attacks and strokes. Monitoring blood pressure at home of your loved ones and yourself regularly can lead to early detection and prevention of health problems or help with keeping an existing health condition under control. The Omron HEM-7130-L, a blood pressure monitor with a wide range cuff claims to automatically, quickly, easily and accurately measure pulse rate and blood pressure. This review attempts to provide you all the information to determine whether this product fits your needs.
The Omron HEM-7130-L blood pressure monitor measures upper arm blood pressure and pulse rate based on the oscillometric principle*. It is a fairly light weight and compact device making it quite portable. You can use an AC adapter to power the device. Optionally it can be powered by 4 AA batteries when an electrical outlet is not easily available.
The Omron HEM-7130-L comes equipped with a “Body Movement Detection” feature to prevent incorrect readings if the body moves during measurement. To further ensure accurate readings, a “Cuff Wrapping Guide” looks for improperly wrapped cuff around the upper arm. A green LED light with an “OK” signal lights up indicating that the cuff is wrapped correctly. The arm cuff fits arm circumferences across a wide range of 22-42 cms making the device accessible to large number of people. Inbuilt “Intellisense” technology measures blood pressure when the start button is pressed. The reading can be stored along with date and time. The Omron HEM-7130-L can store 60 such readings and can calculate the average of the last 3 readings. In addition to indicating the level of blood pressure, the device can under some circumstances detect and indicate irregular heartbeats in the patient.
High build quality enhances durability
Fairly easy to use
Wide cuff size, large display size and portability further add to the convenience.
- Quick readings when instructions in manual are followed
1. Clinical validation available at http://www.dableducational.org does not contain measurements for patients with higher BP.
2. Inaccurate measurements were reported by a section of users in some online portals.
3. BP Measurements using Omron-7130L are not as accurate as when measuring with a sphygmomanometer.
For critical patients, measurement by a doctor using a sphygmomanometer is recommended.
The Omron HEM-7130-L is a great device for measuring blood pressure at home by a lay person when trained medical personnel are unavailable. It comes with a number of advanced and convenience features that allow monitoring blood pressure over a course of time easily to maintain a healthy lifestyle. It is fairly economical with a number of deals available across some of the leading portals. Please remember for greater accuracy we recommend blood pressure measurement using a sphygmomanometer by a doctor.
