For Home or Away
Gone are the days of bulky blood pressure monitors and the confusing sphygmomanometer, which only a nurse could use. Duronic blood pressure monitors are designed to be used by anyone in the comfort in their own home. The BPM200 is compact and portable allowing you to carry your personal device everywhere you go, giving you constant access to your blood pressure reading at the press of a button. Additionally, the slanted shape of this machine displays the reading at an upright angle which makes it easier to read at a glance.

When taking a reading the cuff will inflate to apply pressure and then when it has obtained the reading it will deflate again releasing your arm.

The machine has a large display for easy reading of blood pressure and pulse rate results. The most important digits are shown in large text and the least important information 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! This device is non-invasive. The cuff will apply a pressure to the arm between 40-230mmHG, and can measure a pulse range between 40-199 beats per minute.

WHAT THE READINGS MEAN
Blood pressure readings have two numbers, for example, 140/90mmHg. The top number is your systolic blood pressure (the highest pressure when your heart beats and pushes the blood around your body). The bottom one is your diastolic blood pressure (the lowest pressure when your heart relaxes between beats).
Only one of the numbers has to be higher or lower than it should be to count as either ‘high blood pressure’ or ‘low blood pressure’. The level of your blood pressure determines what kind of treatment or changes you may need to undertake. The Duronic BPM200 blood pressure monitor will measure blood pressure in the following way:
SEVERE: 180/110 > or over..........................GRADE 3: severe hypertension
MODERATE: 160/100 to 179/109...............GRADE 2: moderate hypertension
MILD: 140/90 to 159/99...............................GRADE 1: mild hypertension
NORMAL: 90/60 to 139/89......................... HEALTHY RANGE
If the reading measures less than <90/60 it is advisable to get it checked again by your GP who can confirm/diagnose low blood pressure and offer advice to treat it. To find out more about blood pressure please refer to the NHS website where you will find further guidelines and advice.
