Re: I need a little home bp monitoring tutelage
MEN with BIG GUNS need a large cuff. If the velcro starts giving when you measure your hubby, the reading is worthless.
There are plenty of supply houses that sell replacement cuffs. They all give the range of arm measurements they fit...double check by measuring. If you have an autoinflate digital read make sure you get a SINGLE TUBE model. The DOUBLE TUBE are for an inflation bulb model <yecch!> Should cost you in the vicinity of $20.
I love my LUMISCOPE 1085M...it has given me great, reliable service and it takes a large range of arm sizes. It cost me much less than $50 (maybe even $30) with a CVS Rebate deal a couple years ago.
