    Most Accurate BP Monitor?

    We had Omron Digital, it was almost always inaccurate. We had to try 3-4 times and then basically see which one was closer to what it was last time! I later brought Rossmax Analog one with sethescope, its a lot better but takes time to know how to measure. I took it to my doc and guided me how...
