Why use a wrist blood pressure monitor compared to one on the upper arm?
Wrist blood pressure monitors are sensitive to body position so it is best the ensure your arm and wrist must be at heart level. What you might find is that a blood pressure monitor on the wrist may record a slightly higher blood pressure measurement than if on the upper arm is used. This is because wrist arteries are narrower and not as deep under your skin as those in the forearm.
Some people cannot use an upper arm blood pressure monitor - wither it is difficult for them to use, their arm is too large or they find the inflated type is painful to use If this is the case then a wrist blood pressure monitor is an ideal alternative.
