Lifesource Blood Pressure Monitor Series Review
Today's home blood pressure monitors have advanced remarkably with the development of technology that aims to produce the most useful and accurate data which can make a life saving difference in the control and management of hypertension.
Lifesource monitors are manufactured by A&D Medical a company that has been specializing in this since 1977. The monitors have an industry known competitive advantage of having exceeded accuracy standards established by AAMI and internationally recognized and respected blood pressure instruments approver. Other monitor brands also have their instruments approved by AAMI. This is because electronic digital blood pressure monitors can produce inaccurate results if not properly calibrated and clinically tested.
The AAMI requires that blood pressure monitors remain accurate even after 10000 inflations. Inflations and deflations occur to the cuff each time a measurement is taken. The Lifesource blood pressure monitoring series exceeded these expectations when tested, a reputation the company has used to its competitive advantage on the fierce blood pressure monitor market.
The technology behind Lifesource monitors utilities micro-processing technology and well developed algorithms that ensure accurate and consistent readings that are meant to be as good as when one visits the doctor's office. The Lifesource blood pressure monitoring products fall into the following four categories;
Lifesource Automatic Blood Pressure Monitors
Monitors under this category include the model UA-789AC, UA-851, UA-853AC, UA-787EJ, UA-767 Plus and the UA-774. Of particular note is the unique extra large arms blood pressure monitor which is the model UA-789AC. This particular model has extra large cuffs fitting arms ranging from 16.5" to 23.6" which is equivalent to 42cm to 60cm respectively.
This is a unique offering in a market that sometimes alienates special needs individuals who do not necessarily fit into averaged designs which is basis for much of the product manufacturing.
Irregular heartbeat detection is an indispensable feature in modern blood pressure monitors and is worth considering when seriously shopping for a monitor. Irregular heartbeat points to possible future cardiovascular problems which can then be addressed in time. The multi-function automatic UA-851 includes this important feature and so does many other Lifesource models and those from Microlife, Omron , Samsung and others.

Lifesource Wrist Blood Pressure Monitors
The Lifesource blood pressure monitor series of wrist monitors includes three models namely UB-512, UB-521 and UB-328.

The UB-512 model detects irregular heartbeat in addition to giving average readings stored in a 60 memory recall. All three models in this category have slightly different designs. They are however all suitable for travel due to their compact size.
Lifesource Professional Blood Pressure Monitors
In this category is the Aneroid blood pressure kits with models UA-100 and UA-200. These are usually used by medical facilities to give doctor's readings.
