The Right Fit

Cuff size is very important in ensuring an accurate reading every time you monitor. Before you purchase a home blood pressure monitor, determine if you will need a standard or large sized cuff. To determine your arm size, use a cloth measuring tape to measure the circumference of your left arm.

The cuff size options are:

  • Wide Range Adult Cuff -- Fits arm sizes 9 to 17 inches
  • Large Adult Cuff -- Fits arm sizes 13 to 17 inches

Blood Pressure Facts

Your heart is your most important organ, and it's a good idea to know how well it's doing. With Omron home blood pressure monitors, you consistently get an accurate picture of your heart's health.

One in three adults suffer from high blood pressure in America. This condition can lead to heart attacks, strokes, kidney failure, and blindness. With the Omron 5 SERIES upper arm monitor, you can monitor your blood pressure at home, and with the help of your physician, take steps to decrease your risk of heart disease. A healthy heart combined with a healthy lifestyle will help increase your chances for a long, active life.

What the Numbers Mean

Understanding your readings is easy with the Omron 5 SERIES blood pressure monitor. The easy-to-read screen displays your readings in large font and labels each number with a tab along the side.

  • Systolic Pressure is the top number on the display. It's the pressure created as your heart contracts to pump blood throughout the body.
  • Diastolic Pressure is the bottom number on the display. It's the pressure between beats, when your heart relaxes.

These numbers combine to give you your blood pressure reading (systolic over diastolic pressure).

What's in the Box

One Omron BP-742 5 SERIES upper arm blood pressure monitor, one Wide Range Adult Cuff (fits arms sizes 9"-17" in circumference), and English/Spanish instruction manual. Requires four AA batteries.

Tips and Tricks

How to Monitor

Your blood pressure numbers often change. For instance, your blood pressure in the morning can be significantly different than at night, when you visit a doctor's office, or after exercising. By using an Omron blood pressure monitor at home, you're able to detect changes in your blood pressure any time you want.

To ensure an accurate reading, do not measure your blood pressure within 30 minutes of:

  • Exercising
  • Eating
  • Smoking
  • Drinking Alcohol
  • Bathing

Place the blood pressure arm cuff on your left arm and sit quietly for approximately five minutes with both feet flat on the floor. Then, when you are ready to test, simply press the start button and the Omron monitor will do the rest.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
First off, this is a nice home blood pressure machine. While I would never mistake it for, nor compare it to the 2-3 thousand dollar Dinamap machines I use in professional practice - I do find this little Omron to be perfect for home usage. I was offered this product through Amazon's Vine program. Although I did not really need a blood pressure cuff I felt that my expertise may provide a useful review.

The B/P was accurate and it was done quickly. There is an arrhythmia warning indicator here and since I do not have one, I cannot venture to grade its efficiency but would comment that it is a nice addition. The cuff included is nice and has diagrams on it so you will know with minimum effort how it should be placed on your arm.

OK, so I know a lot of people here read the negative reviews in determining if they should purchase a model. I will put these pointers in bulletin form so they are easier to read:

- NO blood pressure machine is going to give the same reading every time. Your blood pressure changes with the wind and is not a number that should magically appear on a screen time after time. Using the cuff on the same arm multiple times in a row will likely ramp up the B/P every subsequent time, as well as your frustration. Using it after exercise, stress, meals or while you are tired will all play around with the final numbers. Pick a daily time to take your B/P, sit down and relax, then begin with your arm resting at your side. The main reason you track your B/P is to get a trend, which is why the built in memory is a nice feature. For people on meds or with special directives, continue to follow your doctor's advice on monitoring.

- Cuff size is extremely important!

Ever since my husband came home from the doc after being told to watch his blood pressure, we've been using this monitor. It's SUPER easy to use, it's fast, it's convenient and it's accurate. I took it with to the doctor and tested them side by side - both this machine and the doctor's came up with the EXACT same reading.

I love that it's so compact too. When it's not in use, I put it in the included bag and tuck it into the buffet in my dining room.

I'd recommend this cuff to anyone!

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
This is a very simple blood pressure monitor. After a very easy initial set-up in which you put in the date and time, there's really only one button that you need. It's marked Start/Stop, which is slightly confusing because it's also the On/Off button. In order to take a reading, you must first fit the inflatable cuff and then press this button twice. Very simple.

The cuff is easy to put onto the bare skin of one's upper arm (about half an inch above your elbow crease) and adjusts to deal with anyone whose elbow is 9 - 13 inches (22 - 32 cm) in diameter. To measure your diameter, get someone to wrap a piece of string around your upper arm and measure the string with a ruler. I can (only) imagine that people with extremely large biceps will have a problem. A bigger issue for the target market might be the minimum size.

The only slightly annoying thing about the monitor is the barely-noticeable boot-up time. After you push the Start/Stop button once, wait until the machine has displayed the date and then press the button again. It takes a few seconds and if you press it too soon, the machine switches off. Even though I know this, I still do it almost every time.

The cuff will inflate and in about a minute you'll have your two blood pressure numbers and your heart rate/pulse:
i) systolic, the pressure when your left ventricle contracts, ie your heart beats
ii) diastolic, the (more important) pressure when your heart is relaxed
iii) pulse rate - how many times your heart beats per minute

Some things to be aware of when you're dealing with ANY blood pressure monitor. First, your readings will vary. My systolic pressure varies between 110 and 120. My diastolic pressure varies between 52 and 63. My pulse varies between 49 and 60.

I chose the Omron742 5 series due to some reviewers' difficulty in using the 7 series cuff. When it arrived, I found this monitor easy to use, but my blood pressure readings were all over the place, from normal to "Call the doctor" readings, all within minutes of each other. After a few days of wondering if I were in need of medication, I brought the monitor with me to my chiropractor appointment. My pressure was 18 points lower using her manual monitor. The monitor was easy to return, and Amazon paid the postage since the monitor was defective. I decided to replace it with an Omron 7 Series, since my chiropractor assured me that her mother had one, and the cuff was very easy to use. I bought it locally at Costco for only a few dollars more than the 5 Series. It was very easy to use the cuff, and the readings have been very accurate. I guess the moral of the story is to always bring new monitors to one's next medical appointment to check the accuracy.

I love the Omron BP742 5 Series. It gives accurate blood pressure as well as stores it for future reference. It also identifies if you have an uneven heart beat. I am on medicine to lower my BP and I already have low BP so I like to keep track of it. Highly recommend this product!
