Why You Need a Blood Pressure Machine | Doctor Explains Omron HEM-7121



The Omron blood pressure monitor is a simple, reliable and easy to use device if your doctor has asked you to perform home blood pressure readings. In this video I give you a demonstration of how to use it and what the blood pressure sounds like whilst the cuff is being inflated and deflated.

This device should always be used under the instruction of your medical doctor and is not a substitute for medical advice.

  1. Thanks for this wonderful video. But can you tell me the brand and model of your tiny stethoscope, and where I can buy one? Thanks!

  2. Dr. Nora, my omron machine doesn't inflate past 145 on the top number does this mean there may be something wrong with the unit? Thanks!

  3. If used one on the body world expiditon in amsterdam! No dockters there, took me doing it 2 or 3 times before i read that you are only alowed to do it 1 time……

  4. Can you make a head to toe assessment video with woman patient ?

  5. Lovely Korotkoff sounds and cuff looks nice on your arm Doctor ; )

  6. Good job on all the props in this video, as well as letting us actually hear your blood pumping.

  7. I came here from the 5G video, now im checking my blood pressure

  8. Great video. My BP is 125/89. According to my meter I'm prehypertension. Started taking BP daily. I'm using Lisinopril Ratiopharm 20 mg prescribed by my doctor. Subscribing to your channel doc. Thank you!

  9. I did not know when you saw the heart beat flickering it meant your heart rhythm was irregular. Wow. Mine does that all of the time, but I have a different type of blood pressure monitor.

  10. A very good video. I used a Omron HEM 7130 some years ago, and it is good when you have to take BP (Blood Pressure) with a palpitating heart. I found that it works better if you use it once a week, rather than once every 4 months like I did. Digital monitors, even Tv's I found , work better with regular use.

    I replaced it with a cheap $50AUD unit and found that it reads error when your heart palpitates, or starts inflating again – not satisfied.

    If you just have to take BP in the car like I do, then Omron do make a wrist monitor, so you don't need to take off clothing, and its especially good to take BP for a 92yr old mother like I got. And if she/you have Parkinsons or any tremor on one arm, then that will cause interference on the monitor, so use the other arm. Beware though, I have found the wrist monitor to be plus 10points higher than the normal monitor. Still, if the wrist monitor reads 140 / 150 systole, best to see the doctor.

    If you have an older car (mines a 1974 Datsun), and have modified the spark plug leads to unsupressed/straight wire leads (they are still available or can be made), then anything digital,
    BP momitors, multimeters etc., will show interference within a metre or two of the leads. I have changed to low supressed leads.
    And now, its time to attend to the old cheese.

  11. Very useful information about BP machine Mam 👍👌.very nicely explained Mam👍.You are awesome Mam🌷💛🌹😍🙏

  12. Informative Video as always.!! ❤

  13. Amazing video! I am waiting for a heart beat video. If you could record your heart beats, it would be amazing =)

  14. So happy to see that you are staying safe and healthy during Covid-19 and love your channel and videos and God bless you and stay safe and healthy. Love you, Matthew Carrubba from Oklahoma

  15. I'm using hicks brand machine for my father

  16. IF YOU WOULD TAKE MY BLOOD PRESSURE IM SURE I WOULD BE RUSHED IN FOR HEART SURGERY….
