Merchandise Center - PO Box 68993 Schaumburg IL Complaint - Wrist Blood Monitor - False Readings

Review by Cecil Parker on 2008-08-19
INDIANAPOLIS, INDIANA -- I was prompted to keep track of my blood pressure because it was continuing to increase with my last five doctor visits. I saw the advertisement on my Macy's department store charge card payment envelope. I decided to purchase two-one for me at work and one for home. Upon learning how to read the instrument, I later learned that it gave false readings. I took the one I kept at work to the Nurse's station and had her take my pressure, wait 10-15 minutes or so then use mine or vice versa on several visits.

Each time the reading on the wrist monitor was much higher than her manual pump instrument. We tried it on several occasions and weeks apart. We concluded that the "wrist monitors were not to be trusted". I hate that I spent $50.00 for the both of them.

I do not want any one else that needs to monitor their pressure wasting their hard-earned money on a faulty product. Life is too serious for that!

2 fingers on your wrist while looking at your watch is a pretty accurate method of monitoring your ticker.
