The ComFit Cuff is pre-formed for a quick and proper fit that is perfect for both medium and large-sized arms (nine to 17 inches). It’s easy to apply the cuff to your arm without any assistance — simply wrap the cuff around your arm and press start. In seconds your blood pressure and pulse are displayed on the large digital panel. Proven time and time again, Omron’s IntelliSense technology ensures accurate, clinically-proven, and comfortable readings. And with a 60-memory recall with date and time stamp, you can track your blood pressure and pulse progress as your work towards a healthier lifestyle.

The Omron HEM-711DLX delivers accurate, clinically-proven blood pressure readings in the comfort of your own home.

To take an accurate reading, first position the green marker directly over the artery on the inside of your arm.

Next, place your arm on a table so the cuff is positioned at the same level as your heart.
Instructions for Upper Arm Blood Pressure Monitors
There are several easy steps to taking your blood pressure with this monitor. First of all, avoid eating, smoking, and exercising for at least 30 minutes before taking a measurement. Remove tight-fitting clothing from your upper arm, and sit in a chair with your feet flat on the floor. Slide your left arm through the cuff and position the cuff approximately 0.5-inches above the elbow. On the cuff you’ll notice a green marker; position this marker directly over the artery on the inside of your arm. Next, secure the cuff with the Velcro material. The cuff should make direct contact with your skin, but you should be able to easily fit your index finger between the cuff and your arm.
Place your arm on a table so that the cuff is positioned at the same level as your heart. Rest comfortably in a relaxed environment for at least 15 minutes prior to taking your blood pressure measurement. Once you feel relaxed, simply press the start button and remain still. The cuff will begin to inflate and numbers will appear on the display as the heart symbol flashes. When the measurement is complete, the cuff will deflate, and your blood pressure and pulse rate will display on the screen. If you need to stop the measurement at any time, simply press the on/off button and the monitor will immediately deflate. And remember, always consult your physician for specific information about your blood pressure.
What is IntelliSense?
The IntelliSense monitor inflates the cuff to the ideal level with each use — you never have to make any adjustments to select an inflation level. This is especially convenient for hypertensive users and for people with certain arrhythmia or heart disorders because their blood pressure is so likely to fluctuate. The biggest advantage of using the IntelliSense technology is a personalized inflation every time for maximum comfort.
The Importance of Home Blood Pressure Monitoring
Doctors, diabetes educators, physician assistants, nurses, and other healthcare professionals all recommend home blood pressure monitoring for various reasons. Home monitoring provides your healthcare professionals with better information to understand and manage your high blood pressure. Many types of hypertension can only be detected by monitoring your blood pressure at home, including:

White-Coat Hypertension: blood pressure reading is high in your doctor’s office but lower at home
Masked Hypertension: blood pressure reading is low in doctor’s office but higher at home
Morning Hypertension: blood pressure reading is higher in the morning
Additionally, many factors can affect your blood pressure, including physical exertion, emotional fluctuations, medications, and stress. So having your blood pressure monitored at a pharmacy with an in-store device after you’ve been shopping or walking around might not provide you with the most accurate measurement. Monitoring your blood pressure at home allows you achieve a relaxed state more easily, and it gives you the flexibility to take your measurements at various times during the day. By keeping track of your home blood pressure readings, you can provide your healthcare professional with a log of your measurements over time. This can help them evaluate the effectiveness or need for medication.

Ms. Cannot Decide: I heard Mr. Might-be Vampire is worried?
Neighbor: News travel fast isn’t. He is. But I’m not sure why. Are you not worried that you might fell off the fence?

Ms. Cannot Decide: Absolutely not. I have full confidence in myself on balancing. I think I might know what he is worried about.
Neighbor: Really? Maybe you might since there are similarities between the two of you.

Ms. Cannot Decide: He might be afraid that he couldn’t control Carrot if he visits. You know Carrot hasn’t been going out to new places for a long time. A new place to a dog is always very interesting. He might bark at strange things, run in circles over nothing, jump to reach objects in your house, and so might even break things.
Neighbor: I don’t have breakable ornaments in my house. Things are that breakable are cups and plates. I keep those in cabinets and he won’t be able to break them? Initially when I moved in, I thought of decorating the house. But the practical side later took over and so I don’t spend money on those, and gardening keeps me busy so I hardly shop too.

Ms. Cannot Decide: But I think he is worried that he has to control Carrot from running here and there, and in the end, he becomes exhausted and fall asleep on the couch. And I think he might have low blood pressure too. And he might even faint after chasing Carrot in your house, up and down, left and right, from the front to the back garden.
Neighbor: Huh? Why do you think he has low blood pressure?

Ms. Cannot Decide: He looks pale isn’t?
Neighbor: How do you know? You have never seen him before and I’ve never mentioned that to anyone too. I only said he has curly hair, blue or grey eyes..

Ms. Cannot Decide: So I’m right. It’s a hunch. So what would you do if he sleeps or faints in your house or garden?
Neighbor: If he fall asleep, I’ll wait for him to wake up and actually I could enjoy watching him sleep. I think he lacks of sleep. So I’ll let him sleep as long as he likes. If he sleeps until the next day, I could make him breakfast too. I’ll make sure he is kept warm and doesn’t catch a cold when he sleeps. If he faints, I think I may have to use my fingers to act some pressure on the area below his nose and the area behind the eyes before the hair? It’s painful but it will wake the person up. My mom used to do that when I had fainting spells when I was a kid. And I would do that to myself too when I feel giddy on the bus. Or he can let me know of any other way to make it work because I know he had fainted before in the past after he was chased by a white pit bull non-stop, in the end, he was so exhausted and he fainted.

Ms Cannot Decide: OK, looks like you understand his background slightly. I think the methods you suggested sound good to me. Although I wish you could do the same thing to me.
Neighbor: ?

Ms Cannot Decide: If I faint at your doorstep, would you carry me inside and put me at the foot of your bed? You know i like to sleep over there.
Neighbor: Er… if you faint, I think I will carry you to your owners…

Ms Cannot Decide: Sigh. I know! You wouldn’t do what I want you to do.
Neighbor: Sorry…

Diabetes365 Day 29 – 110807

Diabetes365 Day 29 - 110807
I had an appointment with my PCP today for an annual physical. I dislike going to the doctor so this annual physical is 19 months after my last one. I wouldn’t have even made the appointment but I need new prescriptions for some medications.

While left to my own devices in the room wearing nothing but one of their lovely gowns, I took some pictures. I forgot to turn the flash on… oh well.

Here’s some equipment used to measure other numbers besides blood glucose, including one that many diabetics have problems with: blood pressure. My blood pressure is fine and today it measured 100/70. My temperature was 99.1, actually higher than normal for me. My peak flow was 500 thanks to Advair, which is the only medication I’ve tried in the past 10+ years that has allowed me to breathe without difficulty again. My archenemy, the scale, read 171 fully clothed. I’m not happy with that number and I’m still looking to lose 20 pounds, but my doctor told me that it’s much better than what I weighed during my last physical (20 pounds ago!). She said my previous weight was too low for my body, and my CDE has also told me the same thing, but of course I don’t agree.

I checked my BG when I first got to the office and it was 78. I thought about treating it, since it had been less than 90 minutes since I ate lunch, but I let it go. I checked when I was getting ready to leave and it was 82. I guess I don’t have white coat syndrome, even though I dislike going to the doctor. I did have a snack (some pretzels) and set a temp basal because I planned on walking back home.

Next week I’ll call and get some more numbers: an A1c result, TSH and whatever else they’re checking for this time.
