I have purchased an electronic bp meter rather than the stethascope type and wish to know if they are concidered as accurate.It seems to read a lot lower than the stythascope system my chiropractic used on me,but this had a dial gauge readout rather than mercuric type so may have been out of calibration its self.Does any one have comfirmation of these digital oscillemeytic type meters,I have noticed that it seems to carry on lowering the diastolic figure long after I feel the pulsing in my arm stop(it is the full arm cuff type).This suggests that it is more sensitive than the stythascope method but standards have been set by the styth -method so is the reading missleadingly low.
