Using the digital blood pressure monitor
« on: August 14, 2019, 08:02:09 AM »
Upon the suggestion of my sister who is a nurse, I bought a digital monitor for blood pressure. She said that I should check my blood pressure before doing a workout and also check it after the workout. I know that is a medical advice but it seems like I am being scared by that digital device. Maybe I will just do the workout when I am feeling fine and not worry about the blood pressure.

Its always good to take safety actions before doing exercise. Monitoring the body condition/temperature will give you an assurance that you are able and well to conduct exercises during the day. I understand the hassle and fear of taking blood pressure. It might lead to the idea of "overthinking of high results". It takes courage to face the fear of something we don't know and don't want to know. But then again, its best to keep yourself relax and always be positive. Choose exercise that's not strenuous.

pros with digital blood pressure monitor is that it is easy to used just press and it will automatically defects your blood pressure.
the cons about it is that i think the result is not that reliable. specially when the bp monitor is old.
the pros with the manual bp monitor is that the result will be acurate. but you still need to first learn on how to use it.

When the numbers look erratic, my sister said that I should check the batteries. Sometimes the battery can be loose that will result into a not so accurate reading. But generally the reading is good and it is now easy to use with not much hassle.

The digital blood pressure is good to use, but I still prefer the manual.
