the american heart associate says that arm cuffs are the most accurate, followed by wrist cuffs, and the the finger monitors being the least accurate.

As far as I know you need to wait at least 15 min between readings. otherwise the second reading will be inacurate. You did just artificially consrict the vessels and they need a little time to get over that.

I have a wrist cuff and I measured it against the automatic cuff at Target and against the bp taken by my OB and it was right on both times.

I was told by my OB and the pharmacy that they are not accurate. ?!?!?! But, they do sound easier!
