Anybody else had trouble with consistently high BP readings on withings connect bp monitor?
I recently swapped out my old omron wrist monitor for a withings connect bp arm cuff. It seems like my readings may be running consistently high (20 on sys, 10 on dia). I'm testing this theory at the doctors office tomorrow. I purchased the new cuff because my old omron wrist monitor seemed to be reading low, although that was around the time I was in cardiogenic shock before the milrinone (so perhaps it wasn't actually off...). I halfway managed to get an old fashioned reading with a stethoscope and an armband (unfortunately I am not skilled at the juggling act this requires when taking a reading on yourself lol) and the results sounded about the same as the old wrist cuff. I did an online search and found a large number of compaints online for my new device having the exact problem 20 high on systolic, 10 high on diastolic.
Other than teaching my spouse how to use the stethoscope and cuff any recommendations on an accurate automatic device? Not happy with how all the various "wireless" ones have preformed over the years. Consistently accurate readings are important for me right now so any recommendations would be appreciated! Pissed about Withings marketing on how accurate and clinically tested it was to find out this is a common issue (the device costs a pretty penny).
