BPM150 Blood Pressure Monitor
Duronic is working with highly skilled medical test centres to bring to you efficient technology that gives you accurate blood pressure readings from the comfort of your home. We understand sometimes simplicity is the best; this is why most of our blood pressure monitors are one touch operation. All our cuffs are designed to be comfortable, easy to fit and highly accurate when taking readings. Batteries are included to get you started as soon as you receive the unit.
You don't have to worry if you have never used a machine like this before. Our Instruction manual will teach you how you should put the cuff on properly, when it’s best to take a measurement and when you should try to avoid. All these tips will make sure you get the accurate information that you need to keep your blood pressure monitored and under control.
Blood pressure readings fall into four general categories, ranging from normal to stage two, high blood pressure (hypertension). The level of your blood pressure determines what kind of treatment you may need.
Example: If your blood pressure is consistently above 135/85mmHg but your risk of other problems is low – you'll need to make some changes to your lifestyle.
If your blood pressure is consistently above 135/85mmHg and your risk of other problems is high – you will need to contact a doctor for medication to lower your blood pressure, in addition to lifestyle changes.
if your blood pressure is consistently above 160/100mmHg – you'll need to contact a doctor in order to receive medication to lower your blood pressure, in addition to lifestyle changes.
Below are some changes you could make to your lifestyle to reduce high blood pressure. Some of these will lower your blood pressure in a matter of weeks, while others may take longer.
cutting your salt intake to less than 6g (0.2oz) a day
eating a low-fat, balanced diet – including plenty of fresh fruit and vegetables
Being active – getting more exercise and playing sports such as football, swimming etc.
cutting down on alcohol
losing weight – find out what your ideal weight is using a BMI healthy weight calculator and read advice about losing weight if you're overweight
drinking less caffeine – found in coffee, tea and cola
stopping smoking – get help quitting
getting at least six hours of sleep a night if you can
You can take these steps today, regardless of whether or not you're taking blood pressure medication. In fact, by making these changes early on you may be able to avoid needing medication.

The most important digits are shown in large text and the least important text is in smaller text.
The device can be operated using 3 user-friendly buttons which can easily be understood by reading the manual just once!
