FDA Issues Warnings On Blood Pressure Kiosks

(Undated) -- Blood-pressure monitoring kiosks at drug and grocery stores may not be accurate. Dr. George Thomas treats high blood pressure. He says many factors go into an accurate blood-pressure reading. The FDA says most blood-pressure kiosks have a one-size cuff that doesn't fit everyone properly. Thomas says if you're worried about your blood pressure, either have your doctor take it or buy a machine for home use.
