Accuracy

Walgreens monitors have been clinically tested against a
scientific device called a sphygmomanometer, considered the
gold standard in blood pressure measurement. All Walgreens
monitors have performed equivalent to measurements taken
with this scientific device and are within the accuracy limits
prescribed by the American National Standard for Electronic
or Automated Sphygmomanometers.

Measurement Method

Walgreens monitors measure blood pressure and pulse by
using what's called an oscillometric method, meaning they
measure the fluctuations in pressure. This is done by first
wrapping a fitted cuff around the upper arm. The monitor
then automatically fills the cuff with air creating pressure
around the arteries inside of the arm. Mounted inside of the
cuff is a special gauge that is capable of sensing the small
oscillations (fluctuations) in pressure. These fluctuations are
produced as a result of the pressure the cuff has placed
around the arm and are, in a basic sense, the arteries pulsing
(getting larger and smaller) with each heart beat. The monitor
then measures how high and how quickly these pulses occur
and converts that information into a digital value. A special
valve, called an electrode, deflates the monitor automatically
when the measurement is complete.

Special Conditions

All Walgreens blood pressure monitors are safe and accurate
to use with arrhythmias such as atrial or ventricular premature
beats and atrial fibrillation.
