In brief: See below

Digital ones are quite accurate, but must be compared to ones in your physicians office to be verified.
Instructions are simple to follow.Make sure you are getting the right size cuff, the length of the BP cuff bladder should be 80 percent, and the width at least 40 percent (and some use 46 percent), of the circumference of the upper arm. They are labelled small adult, adult and large adult.
