Home blood pressure monitoring can help you keep closer tabs on your blood pressure, show if medication is working, and even alert you and your doctor to potential complications.

If you have high blood pressure, a home blood pressure monitor is really necessary to help you monitor your numbers.

The simplest and easiest one to use is the automatic, cuff-style, bicep (upper-arm) monitor. Make sure the cuff fits. You can measure it around your upper arm before purchase and choose a suitable one.
