pacemaker and blood pressure machines
I just got a pacemaker. I would also like to keep track of my blood pressure. The Omron home machine I have states that it doesn't produce accurate results and may show no results at all. What machines can one use?

I recently purchased, via Amazon, the Wellvue Armfit home bloodpressure & ECG monitor. I am very happy with it (& it has overwhelmingly good reviews on Amazon). Note: I have no financial interest or stake in the sale of this product.
Actually your Pacemaker company may also have a BP device and I even had a scale that all got read by the bedside device, maybe check with them and insurance covered mine.
I have had a pacemaker for 7+ years, and I use both Omron and and Alcedo (?) BP machines with no issues.
I use the Omron BP Monitor with a pacemaker and have no problems.
Thanks all. Honestly, I was afraid to use it. Silly but true.
Soooo, after all your feedback, I felt comfortable giving it a try.
And, It worked just fine and was accurate.
