Comment:

We used the monitor with my mother who has hypertension and it showed she had low blood pressure; it showed that her daughter was hypertensive with multiple readings (150/90) but she has never received a diagnosis of hypertension or an abnormal reading at the doctor's office (even recently). My concern is that it might be inaccurate.
