it deflates 12 or 13 points at a time..when other bpmonitor deflates 5 to 6 points...ist normal?..thanks Jan 11, 2014
Yes, that is normal for this model which is pretty accurate when I compare it to the one at the doctors office or hospital I work at.
Actually cheaper to buy new - we contacted Omron about this - they indicated that 1. you need to get right cuff and hose for your model or it won't work - they are calibrated to each model. 2. You are better off buying a new one since if cuff/hose are bad, likely the unit is old and should be replaced.
I find this cuff difficult to use and uncomfortable - is there a regular auto-inflate cuff with a D ring that can be used? Sep 20, 2014
I've been using this about 5 years and I'm not having a problem. Are you sure you're using it right? It doesn't have to be tight. It seems essentially the same as what most doctors use. The only negative I've run across is keeping the cuff aligned as I wrap it. It tends to wander a bit causing the Velcro to have "bubbles" in it. I just make sure I press it down with my right hand as I wrap it. I don't know of any other cuffs but you might check their web site. For me it works fine and reads pretty close to the same as the doctor's.
Unfortunately it does NOT work on a Mac.
How it different from Omron Ultra Premium Digital Blood Pressure Monitor: Does any one know what's the difference between HEM-79IT and their Ultra Premium Digital Blood Pressure Monitor Nov 23, 2010
I think both are same. See Omron website http://www.omronwebstore.com/detail/OMR+HEM-790IT
