To mea­sure blood pres­sure, doc­tors and patients around the world use a spe­cial device called a tonome­ter. Auto­mat­ic blood pres­sure mon­i­tors are con­ve­nient, but they cost sev­er­al times more, but semi-auto­mat­ic ones are the gold­en mean.

The choice of blood pres­sure mon­i­tors in phar­ma­cies is now large, and friend­ly phar­ma­cists are always ready to help and rec­om­mend a good mod­el. But it is much more rea­son­able to lis­ten before buy­ing not the opin­ion of one per­son, but to care­ful­ly study the char­ac­ter­is­tics of blood pres­sure mon­i­tors and reviews about them.

AND UA-604

AND UA-604

Users are attract­ed by the afford­able price and pain­less cuff. To make the mea­sure­ment as com­fort­able as pos­si­ble, it uses an inter­nal cylin­dri­cal cham­ber, thanks to which the pres­sure is dis­trib­uted more even­ly. The tonome­ter is very light — only 76 gr., Takes up lit­tle space.

Man­age­ment is car­ried out with just one but­ton — even an elder­ly per­son will fig­ure it out. It only takes one bat­tery to oper­ate and lasts a very long time. Pleas­es with a good ser­vice life — accord­ing to some buy­ers, the device has been work­ing prop­er­ly for more than ten years. Indi­ca­tions have a slight error. The dis­ad­van­tages of the mod­el are that it remem­bers only one last mea­sure­ment and has a cuff that is stan­dard in length.

B.Well PRO-30 (M)

B.Well PRO-30 (M)

A suc­cess­ful and inex­pen­sive mod­el from an Eng­lish man­u­fac­tur­er of med­ical equip­ment. The weight of the device is 50 gr. A very com­fort­able cuff of a con­i­cal anatom­i­cal shape — the shoul­der does not squeeze when inflat­ed, does not leave bruis­es. The set of func­tions for a semi-auto­mat­ic tonome­ter is not bad — the WHO scale, remem­ber­ing the last (but only one) mea­sure­ment, arrhyth­mia recog­ni­tion. The scale of the World Health Orga­ni­za­tion shows the gen­er­al­ly accept­ed norm of blood pres­sure and the devi­a­tion of real indi­ca­tors from it.

There is only one but­ton on the device, all read­ings are dis­played on a small LCD dis­play. The cuff of the base length of 22–32 cm is suit­able for peo­ple of nor­mal build. The error of the results is min­i­mal. An analy­sis of the reviews shows that the tonome­ter is of high qual­i­ty, prac­ti­cal, accu­rate and ele­men­tary in oper­a­tion. At the same time, it is cheap­er than sim­i­lar mod­els from the same cat­e­go­ry.

Omron S1

Tonome­ters of this Japan­ese com­pa­ny have long earned a rep­u­ta­tion as reli­able devices. Despite the emer­gence of more mod­ern devices, semi-auto­mat­ic mod­els are still in demand. Specif­i­cal­ly, for this com­pa­ny, they can be clas­si­fied as an opti­mal ratio of cost and qual­i­ty. The device is not the most func­tion­al, but prac­ti­cal — it mea­sures the pulse, stores up to 14 mea­sure­ments in mem­o­ry. In addi­tion to the stan­dard, it is pos­si­ble to use a small and large cuff.

The mea­sure­ment error is small. Oper­ates only on bat­ter­ies, the man­u­fac­tur­er does not pro­vide an AC adapter for this mod­el. But the bat­ter­ies last for a long time due to the fact that the pres­sure is pumped up man­u­al­ly with the help of a pear. Reviews are good — ease and com­fort of use, low price, com­pact­ness. Dis­ad­van­tages — no pulse sound and arrhyth­mia detec­tion func­tion.

Microlife BP N1 Basic

Micro­life BP N1 Basic

High-qual­i­ty semi-auto­mat­ic tonome­ter with extend­ed func­tion­al­i­ty. The mem­o­ry capac­i­ty is quite suf­fi­cient — 30 cells, it rec­og­nizes and shows arrhyth­mia, com­pli­ance of blood pres­sure with the stan­dards of the World Health Orga­ni­za­tion. The stan­dard cuff length is 22–32 cm — not suit­able for over­weight and large peo­ple. This can be con­sid­ered a dis­ad­van­tage.

The error is not more than 3 mm Hg. Art., pulse read­ings are also quite accu­rate. Pow­ered by three lit­tle fin­ger bat­ter­ies — they last a long time. The pear is soft, inflates eas­i­ly, the cuff does not pinch the shoul­der. There are only two but­tons on the device — pow­er and mem­o­ry. Even an elder­ly per­son will be able to deal with the con­trols. A big plus is the large and con­trast­ing num­bers on the dis­play.

AND UA-705

AND UA-705

A device of increased com­fort for large or over­weight peo­ple. It fea­tures a large cuff — 32–45cm. Thanks to the spe­cial­ly shaped inter­nal cham­ber, the pres­sure is dis­trib­uted more even­ly, painful and unpleas­ant sen­sa­tions are min­i­mized. In terms of func­tion­al­i­ty, it belongs to the best semi-auto­mat­ic devices — the man­u­fac­tur­er has pro­vid­ed a WHO scale, a 30-cell jour­nal for dai­ly pres­sure con­trol, and arrhyth­mia recog­ni­tion. The screen is three-line with large char­ac­ters.

The mod­el has one but­ton con­trol. Accu­ra­cy with­in tol­er­ances — the error does not go beyond 3 mm Hg. Art. It takes one bat­tery to work and lasts a long time. The device is reli­able and easy to use.

Little Doctor LD2

Lit­tle Doc­tor LD2

Inex­pen­sive but reli­able tonome­ter. As in many mod­els of this brand, the Fuzzy algo­rithm is used. It helps the user deter­mine to what lev­el the cuff needs to be inflat­ed. Oth­er­wise, the device is not very func­tion­al — it will count the pulse, but will not show arrhyth­mia and the results of pre­vi­ous mea­sure­ments.

This blood pres­sure mon­i­tor is often cho­sen for the elder­ly instead of stan­dard mechan­i­cal mod­els, as it is much eas­i­er and more con­ve­nient to use. The absence of addi­tion­al options in this case becomes a plus — device con­trol is reduced to press­ing one but­ton. The cuff is quite com­fort­able, the pear is inflat­ed eas­i­ly — you do not need to apply exces­sive force for this.
