Ozeri CardioTech BP3T

MAIN FEATURES OF OZERI CARDIOTECH PREMIUM SERIES BP3T

The main technology used for systolic and diastolic measurements is pulse wave detection. Ozeri goes one step further introducing the so called “double pulse detection” algorithm, which significantly improve the pulse wave recognition capabilities of the device compared to the standard digital blood pressure monitors. This double pulse detection feature allows Ozeri CardioTech BP3T to take far more accurate readings than most of the home blood pressure monitors.

Along with the improved blood pressure reading system, Ozeri CardioTech BP3T has algorithms for detection of Automatic Irregular heartbeat (Arrhythmia) and Hypertension. The device calculates an average blood pressure based on the last 3 measurements.

One of the really nice and useful features of the device is that it not only displays you your systolic and diastolic numbers, but also shows you how your values compare with the normal blood pressure range scale. This Ozeri blood pressure monitor automatically classifies each measurement according to World Health Organization (WHO) hypertension guidelines and shows it on the scale. The scale display is an clear indicator of whether or not you have a potential problem with your blood pressure.

HOW ACCURATE IS OZERI CARDIOTECH BP3T?

Well users report that the device is quite accurate and shows almost no deviation compared to measurements made in the doctor’s office. Probably this is the reason why many medical professionals are using this device and recommend it for their patients. Actually the demonstrated high accuracy of the device is determined by the usage of a state of the art CPU that support an algorithm for detection of  double pulse which enhance pulse wave detection and therefore improves the overall device accuracy. In addition, Ozeri CardioTech BP3T has an automatic algorithm for detection of irregular heartbeat (arrhythmia) and is able to detect automatically hypertension. All of the above makes Ozeri CardioTech BP3T a very reasonable choice for patients who need highly accurate device on a reasonable price.

HOW EASY IS USING OZERI CARDIOTECH BP3T?

Ozeri CardioTech BP3T is highly compact and portable. The device has high contrast dark blue LCD with LED backlight, which makes very easy to read your blood pressure and heart rate values. The device has highly sensitive buttons and an easy to spot slider for switching between the different user selections. Once the device is set up, which is not quite difficult, Ozeri CardioTech BP3T could be very easily used on a daily basis because of it’s “one-step operation” feature. In order to check your blood pressure, you have to just place the arm cuff on your arm as you follow the instructions on the arm cuff itself. Once the cuff is properly placed around your arm, just select the appropriate user profile choosing from A or B user button. To start taking a measurement is as easy as pressing of a single button (start/stop button).  Ozeri CardioTech BP3T will automatically inflate the cuff, will measure your blood pressure and heart rate, then it will deflate the arm cuff and you blood pressure results will be displayed on the blue backlit LCD display.

HOW COMFORTABLE IS OZERI CARDIOTECH BP3T DURING INFLATION?

You will feel no pain during the automatic inflation, because the device has dynamic measurement technology called Measure While Inflate (MWI) that adapts the cuff’s inflationpressure according to real-time blood pressure detection. This technology helps Ozeri CardioTech BP3T to inflate the cuff as much it is necessary and it will not inflate to 170 millimeter Hg or higher by default as many of the traditional blood pressure monitors do. Thus it will increase user comfort during measurement and you will feel no pain due to over inflating. Note that the user manual suggest to put your cuff on your left arm, but it will give you no significant deviation if you use it on your right arm either!

WHAT ARE THE AVAILABLE CUFF SIZES FOR OZERI CARDIOTECH BP3T?

The device is shipped with medium cuff size, which supports from 8.7″ to 14.2″ arm sizes. However it is possible to order other cuff sizes, but this has to be done through Ozeri’s corporate site and it will cost you additional $8. The largest cuff size will cover arm size up to 16.6″. If you need other cuff size, we suggest to send a query to [email protected]and wait till they send you an email with details how to order.

HOW MANY READINGS COULD BE STORED BY OZERI CARDIOTECH BP3T?

The CardioTech BP3T blood pressure monitor stores up to 120 blood pressure readings for 2 user profiles. So this means 60 readings per user profile. Each reading is st

ored with date and time in the memory for recall. The device provides a single push-button access to average blood pressure reading and clock, date and time stamp for each blood pressure reading.

IS IT POSSIBLE TO EXPORT DATA FROM THE DEVICE?

Unfortunately Ozeri CardioTech BP3T does not support any mechanism to connect your device to a computer and to transfer or print out your blood pressure readings. If you need to show your blood pressure data to your doctor, you have to bring your device with you or, alternatively, to maintain your blood pressure log manually.

WHAT MEASUREMENT UNITS ARE USED?

During the setup, the device will ask you to choose a measurements unit system between mmHg and kPa, because it supports both. Most of the countries (like USA, UK) use mmHg for blood pressure measurements so if you live is such a country, choose this option. Be sure that you choose the right system, because if not, your device can display values and units that you do not expect, like decimal values if kPA is chosen instead of mmHg. In case that you have made a mistake during the initial setup, you can change you presets pressing and holding the SET button for 3 seconds with the meter off. This will start the device setup wizard again and after the set up of the minutes, you will be able to select the proper measurements unit system.

HOW LONG DOES THE BATTERIES LAST, SINCE NO AC POWER ADAPTER IS INCLUDED?

One of the few disadvantages, is that Ozeri CardioTech BP3T is not shipped with an AC power adapter and you have to use it only on batteries. There is no official info from the manufacturer how long does the batteries last. This will depend highly on the type and the capacity of the batteries and also on the way how you use the device – how many measurements do you take per day and etc. There are some reports from current users that the device is able to take between 700 and 800 measurement with one set of 4 AAA batteries.

WARRANTY AND CUSTOMER SUPPORT

Ozeri CardioTech BP3T comes with the astonishing 5 years warranty for both cuff and reading device. The customer support is also good and quite responsive. However there is no online support in terms of FAQ, downloadable user manuals, live hotline, etc. The only way to contact them is using the support e-mail, pointed above.

In summary Ozeri CardioTech BP3T is highly accurate and reliable device. It is extremely easy to be used on a daily basis and the display visualize the readings clear enough so that is suitable for all ages. CardioTech BP3T has all standard accuracy and safety improving systems, like double pulse detection  algorithm, arrhythmia and hypertension detection systems. This makes it perfect choice for home blood pressure monitor. However, the device has two main disadvantages – 1) the device is not delivered with an AC adapter, so that you will need to run it on batteries and 2) the device does not provide any mechanism for blood pressure log export or print out. If you want an accurate medical device, but do not need data export capability, Ozeri CardioTech BP3T is the device for you.
