Omron Blood Pressure Advance + AFIB Bluetooth Monitor HEM7361T $148.34 + Delivery @ David Jones Pharmacy

220

Gutted to miss out the Withings BPM Connect Wireless Blood Pressure Monitor post but managed to pick myself up and found this good deal.

This is a newly released blood pressure monitor from Omron with AFIB detect function. Here is the product page.

Automatic Blood Pressure Monitor HEM-7361T
Omron HEM-7361T measures and detects blood pressure and AFIB at the same time. Dual Check for Dual Users allows users to have a comprehensive check for their risk of stroke with one device, in one sitting. Designed with families in mind, the dual user function allows for the storage and transmission of measurement data of 2 separate users to their smartphones.

The second cheapest is from Chemist Warehouse @ $174.99.

Always good to support small local pharmacy like David Jones Pharmacy. Pretty sure they are not related to the well known David Jones retail.

Cheers

      If you have or are at risk of high blood pressure or you have some other heart conditions it’s not a bad idea to keep track so you can pick up changes and consult your doctor earlier.

        I have to ask because I haven't had any BP issues. I guess being curious about the utility of devices on Oz bargain gets you negged.

        Is it the case that people take medication for this and therefore you only take it if it's high? Or is there some other reason you need to check it often? E.g Need to check yourself into a hospital?

        • +1

          I didn’t neg you but the doctor may prescribe medication to manage blood pressure. It’s probably not recommended to stop the medication without consulting them.

          But this would allow you to monitor your condition more frequently than whatever interval people otherwise consult their GPs. Potential early intervention if the trend isn’t looking good.

          • @lint: All good mate I knew you didn't neg me from the fact that you answered the question for me. Unlike some other sensitive people on here that seem to associate someone being frank about their blood pressure issues on an anonymous forum to be an affront to politeness.

            I do know some people who are on BP meds, but as you mention these people take them daily or else their blood pressure goes up. As such, is there a utility in checking? Maybe checking too often actually causes some harm? I don't know, I am just trying to get to the bottom of it.

            • @Jackson: Blood pressure is very important. High blood pressure means u r more likely to have stroke or heart. Low blood pressure means there may be not enough blood to your brain and u may faint or feel dizzy.

              @Jackson: There's also white coat hypertension, so some people find they get a more accurate reading when taking it at home by themselves.

        • I thought they were valid questions.

          For us, middle-aged, medical conditions and charged $30 gap each to simply have routine BP taken etc is incredibly frustrating.

          Made moreso if you have an episode but it takes you 3 days to see a GP, by which time, the issue has resolved.

          At least with this (and equally ECG monitoring for ppl who need them), it puts the patient back in control of their conditions.

          Drs are of course vital but it leaves many powerless

          • @Willowtea: I agree, it helps to have your own devices. I got referred to an ecg the other day, but as you mentioned when I go to get it done things will be fine. If you feel like you have an issue once a day, the odds of catching that when you are lying on a bed in a Drs office connected to an ECG is almost none, as such I told the Dr not to waste my time and money. I would be happy to spend 3 times as much as the ECG consult but only if I can actually capture my issue, but I don't have a solution for that yet.

      • yep, doctor gets me to record mine and i bring it in with me ….. the medication i was on pressure went up, tried different medication rather than up dosage not i get blood pressure drops, i take the data in with me as the doctor likes to see trends over a week, rather than the instant i’m in their surgery.

        i could write it down but i’m supposed to take 3 readings and average them and the app does the maths and recording for me.

  • wait for black Friday deal.
    AFIB is not that useful unless you are experiencing AFIB while you are taking your BP.

    FYI, anyone with private health insurance can get up to 90% rebate on this. You'll need a doctors referral though.

  • Amex vogue offer ?

    Nvm this isnt the real david jones wtf.

  • Is this better than the Withings? I ordered that but there’s a delay with delivery and I can cancel my order. Just wondering if this is worth the extra $$. Thanks

    • +4

      I'm not too sure about Withings but Omron is the brand widely used in healthcare.

  • Just bought from Costco but not this model.
    This one is much sophosticated 😷

  • Thanks been waiting for these to drop in price

  • Cheers OP. Opted for the 6232t wrist version. Cheapest price seen in ages, especially for that version.

    • Yup. Ordered the wrist version too. More convenient.

    • +1

      I don't mean to sour your purchase, but wrist monitors are generally considered less accurate than cuff monitors.

      However more sensitive technology may have fixed that issue in recent models

      • It depends on the health conditions of the individuals. As we cannot use arm cuffs, receive regular professional monitoring anyway, wrist cuffs are a convenient way to daily monitor. And you learn to 'put your hand on your heart' fairly quickly 😉

        • I have an upper arm monitor too and I never use it so I'll be testing if it gives substantially different readings.

      • Seems to meet some kind of standard according to this paper. You just need to make sure that it's raised to heart height, but modern devices warn you to do so before taking a reading anyway.

        No idea whether the paper is independently sponsored, but it has big words and science-ey numbers in it.

        https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC6410757/

        • The paper was published by a US gov website, but 2 of the 3 authors were Omron employees.
          BTW I received my wrist monitor. Very small compared to my other upper arm monitor. Also easy to use. So far I don't find the readings too different to my upper arm monitor.

  • What's the app like on this one? I was considering the Withings one because they have a semi-decent app, but I really just need something that can smash the numbers into Apple Health.

    • I have the Omron HEM-7280T (https://www.amazon.com.au/gp/product/B0723GZB8G) from a previous Amazon sale and the app is pretty good for doing this. I would guess this uses the same app.

      Just open the app, pull down to refresh and it'll connect to the device and grab any unsynced data. I don't remember how much unsynced data it caches as I've never left more than 1 or 2 measurements unsynced.
