digital readout cuffs vs. manual cuffs
Hi all, I have an OMRON brand auto-deflate (not inflate) bicep cuff with digital read-out. I decided to buy a cheaper Walgreens old fashioned kind, that you manually inflate and use a stethescope, and read the little meter thingie. Well on the manual one I get a higher reading. I start to hear the thump thump noise at a higher number but it's a soft thump thump and then it gets louder at the number I would like it to be at. But the directions say it's the first sound that you hear that you should record. Which BP cuff is the most accurate do you think? I have fresh batteries in the digital one so I know it's not that.
