SUPERIOR ACCURACY AT DECENT PRICE

LifeSource UA-767PV is clinically validated for accuracy and proves that it is not necessary to buy an expensive blood pressure monitor to be confident about the correctness of your blood pressure readings. Many users report that, indeed, calibration check at their doctors office show really minimal deviation (+/- 5 points) from what their doctor with professional equipment can measure. This is not surprising because it was intensively tested and approved by the European Hypertension Society and tests showed that measurements taken with this device are comparable to readings taken using the cuff/stethoscope auscultation method, within the limits of the American National Standards Institute (ANSI). Not to mention that LifeSource devices comes with lifetime warranty, which could be rarely seen with other vendors.

LIFESOURCE UA-767PV IS SO SIMPLE TO BE USED!

LifeSource UA-767PV is extremely simple to operate and does not need any advanced set-up in order to start using it. This makes it perfect for usage by elderly people and allows them to quickly measure pulse and blood pressure on a daily basis. With just a click of a button, the latex-free cuff of LifeSource UA-767PV automatically inflates and in less than a minute the blood pressure measurement is taken. The readings – pulse, systolic and diastolic pressure, and the time of the measurement are clearly displayed on a large screen. With LifeSource UA-767PV it is easy to track your results over time. This blood pressure monitor is able to recall up to 90 readings with a time/date stamp and it averages your previous readings.

LIFESOURCE UA-767 DETECTS ARRHYTHMIA

The LifeSource UA-767 Plus Blood Pressure Monitor is able to measure your blood pressure and pulse rate even in case of irregular heartbeat. When the device detects arrhythmia, the display will show The Irregular Heartbeat symbol (white heart symbol). When a single heartbeat varies by 25% from the average of all heartbeat intervals during a measurement, this means that you have irregular heartbeat (also known as Arrhythmia) . To avoid or limit the occurrence of this condition during measurements , it is important that you stay relaxed for a couple of minutes before taking the readings, try to remain still and refrain from talking until the measurement completes.

LIFESOURCE UA-767 WILL INTERPRET YOUR READINGS AS YOUR DOCTOR DO

A trained professional could always interpret your blood pressure measurements correctly, but this is not always valid for patients. LifeSource UA-767PV monitor features a Pressure Rating Indicator that classifies whether your blood pressure is high, low, or normal and thus eliminates any guesswork to interpret results. The classification is done according according to the US JNC7 guidelines. The devices provides an easy way for you to check previous pulse and blood pressure readings, to compare the numbers and to get an idea how your blood pressure is changing in time.

LIFESOURCE UA-767PV MEMORY IS ENOUGH FOR A MONTH … BUT FOR A SINGLE USER!

The device could store up to 90 blood pressure and pulse measurements with the required time stamp. This will be enough to build your monthly blood pressure log if you take up to 3 measurements per day. LifeSource UA-767PV does not support different user profiles – just one user! So if you plan to use the device together with other family member, the blood pressure log stored in the device memory will be mixed up with readings taken for different users and you cannot rely on it! This is one of the significant disadvantages of this device.

LIFESOURCE UA-767PV

MAINTAINING YOUR BLOOD PRESSURE LOG

All measurements stored in the device’s memory are numbered, as the older readings have lower number. Each record is properly tagged with a time stamp, so that the user will know when it was taken. The device does not offer any advanced graphical visualization that might facilitate blood pressure trend monitoring or data export to load the data into a PC. However the device package includes a paper based blood pressure log template that allows you to record your blood pressure and pulse values three times a day for a five weeks period.

AVAILABLE CUFF SIZES AND HOW TO ORDER THE RIGHT ONE

Vendors usually ship blood pressure devices with medium cuff unless is stated explicitly that the package includes one of the other two sized cuffs. This is NOT the case with LifeSource UA-767PV, which has just one offer for all 3 cuff sizes and the user has to explicitly select the cuff size he needs. Before placing your order, it will be a good idea to measure your upper arm for proper cuff size selection. Proper cuff selection could influence significantly the accuracy of the device. Do not rely on that if the cuff is large enough it could cover also smaller upper arm sizes! If you plan to use your device with another family member, and your arm sizes could not be covered by just one cuff size, consider purchasing additional cuff for the other person.

LifeSource offer UA-767PV with 3 different cuff sizes:

  • small, sized 6.3 – 9.4″ (16 – 24 cm)
  • medium, sized 9.4 – 14.2″ (24 – 36 cm)
  • large, sized 14.2 – 17.7″ (36 – 45 cm)

Within the offer page you have to select the proper cuff size or alternatively you can use the buttons just above! Note that the price might slightly differ in some cases.

Many users report that LifeSource UA-767PV is ideal for taking measurements on small children and petite people, of course using the small cuff size.

WHAT ARE THE POWER SUPPLY OPTIONS?

LifeSource UA-767PV is shipped without AC-adapter and could be used with 4 AA batteries, which are not included in the package. The vendor ensures that you will be able to use your blood pressure device for a year with one alkaline batteries set. In fact, many users confirm that. As we have already mentioned, LifeSource provide an alternative to order the device with an AC-adapter. To purchase such, you can use offers for LifeSource UA-767PAC model. IMPORTANT:The UA-767PAC are about twice more pricey compared to a combo purchase of UA-767PV together with an additional AC-adapter (around $9). So instead of using the LifeSource UA-767PAC offers it might be better to go for a combo order!

LIFESOURCE LIFETIME WARRANTY … WHAT!?

Yes, that’s right!. LifeSource offer lifetime warranty for most of their blood pressure monitoring devices. However to benefit from LifeSource lifetime warranty you have to register your device using this warranty form. They might request from you to send them a copy of the purchase receipt to be sure that you have purchased one of their devices. They will cover any malfunctions of the device or it’s cuff, but probably will not cover anything caused by mechanic damage of the monitor or the cuff. If you have any questions about the device or the warranty, you can contact their consumer friendly Customer Service Department at 1-888-726-9966.

IS LIFESOURCE UA-767PV FOR YOU?

LifeSource UA-767PV is really very accurate and convenient device. The device is quite simple to setup and use and as such it is suitable for patients in all age groups and especially elderly people. If you need to load your blood pressure readings data into a PC or to export them to be used by health professionals, then we could recommend LifeSource UA-767PC because in addition to the basic features it has also USB connectivity. All modifications of UA-767 are quite affordable, because their price tag is in the mid-range compared to all other devices.
