I was wondering if any one had any recommendations for a BP monitor that works well with POTS patients who have rapidly fluctuating heart rates? I have to take vitals laying, sitting, and standing 3-4times a day. This it the BP monitor I have. http://www.cvs.com/shop/home-health-care/monitors/blood-pressure-monitors/cvs-professional-automatic-blood-pressure-monitor-skuid-800229
It’s okay, but it often has errors because of irregular HB and quickly fluctuating heart rates, plus it takes a while. I’ve heard Fitbits aren’t very accurate either.
