new bp monitor, pres warren, fb musings

when i was in practice patients were always asking me what
monitors to buy
i usually recommended whatever the consumer reports recommended
as they have a good track record on evaluating products
i use to not recommend the wrist ones as they were not accurate

now consumer reports have evaluated two wrist models that appear
to be accurate
they both are held against the heart when the bp is being taken
which reduces errors

the two are the omron 7 series bp652 for $60 and the rite aid
automatic rc210 at $50

they rated 11 arm monitors that all were accurate and reasonably
priced in the october 2011 issue

the best value was the relion hem-74crel at walmart at $46

the best overall was the omron 10 series bp785 at $80

the easiest to use were cvs advanced bp3mv1-1ecvs at $60
            the microlife deluxe automatic bp3na1-1x at $70
            the panasonic ew 3152 w at $130

how to choose
make sure they fit well to get an accurate reading
all of these were found to be accurate
make sure the one you choose is easy for you to use
many have mulitple features to average bp, check for
irregular rhythms, and to tell you if your bp is too high, etc

if youre real techy the ihealth dock bp3 may be for you
at $100

my choice is the recommended best value
easy to use and is cheap and doesnt have all the techy stuff
just the accurate bp reading please is all thats really needed

we had one president with the name of warren
why not another one
make him an independent candidate though

he feels like he could fix things by making a law or amendment
that if the gdp doesnt reach 3% then congress cant get reelected

of course i think none of them should get reelected any way

(maybe if the tea partiers and the occupiers of wall street ran
things then between the two a lot of things would be done that
need to be done)

am sure warren would be glad to tax the 1 % more also
which includes himself
maybe he could be the new american select candidate

we need somebody that will get something done
he has a good track record

saw this one the other day
