How Long Does It Take to Use Walmart Blood Pressure Monitors?

It takes seven minutes or less to use the blood pressure monitors at Walmart, reports Kaiser Health News. As of 2014, customers can also check their heart rate, vision and weight at the store’s interactive health care kiosks.

SoloHealth kiosks in Walmart stores offer free health screenings that include a computer touch screen with information about diet, vitamins and pain management. The kiosks are not connected to a real physician, reports Kaiser Health News.

Only a trained medical professional can accurately diagnose or treat high blood pressure, notes Mayo Clinic. The accuracy of public blood pressure machines may be affected by incorrect cuff size or improper use of the machine.
