Blood Pressure Devices

Blood Pressure Devices Recommended by Hypertension Canada

Hypertension Canada’s Blood Pressure Measurement Device Recommendation Program is designed to help you in your purchasing decisions by easily identifying devices that are validated in studies as accurate.

Devices used to measure blood pressure at home can be purchased from most pharmacies and stores that sell health care equipment. Here are some helpful tips when shopping for a blood pressure monitor:

  • Ask the staff for training on how to properly use the monitor and assistance in selecting the proper cuff size and features.
  • Blood pressure monitors that have a memory or printout for storing readings are recommended as this allows your doctor to see all readings that have been taken.
  • Ask your doctor or pharmacist to check the monitor to make sure it is accurate.
  • Automated blood pressure monitors may not work properly in those with an irregular heart rhythm. If you have an irregular heart rhythm, alert the sales staff so you can test out the device to ensure it takes proper readings before making a purchase.
  • Make sure that the device you are using or purchasing is “Recommended by Hypertension Canada”. These devices have been clinically validated to be accurate.

Blood pressure monitors recommended by Hypertension Canada will have the following on the box and/or in material supplied with the device:

Blood pressure measurement devices improve technological advances. Likewise, the standards for validating these devices as accurate are also improving. Various standards exist globally to gauge the accuracy of blood pressure measurement devices. Those with a Gold rating meet the highest and most current international standards, and those with the Silver ratings meet the highest international standards available prior to their most recent updates. Both Gold and Silver levels are accepted as accurate).
