I know a lot of the older nurses I work with say that they believe the old traditional method is the best and most accurate. My mother has high blood pressure and I just wanted an easy way to check it for her.

I actually use mine quite frequently. I think that mine is accurate but reads a little high. I would never use if for someone that was critical but I have no problem to use it to get someones BP before I give a med. :)
