Default Omron Blood Pressure Monitor in Carry-On Luggage?

Can you carry an electronic blood pressure monitor in your carry-on luggage? My wife was recently diagnosed with high blood pressure and I don't feel comfortable checking our Omron blood pressure monitor (http://www.omronhealthcare.com/products/5-series/) in our check-in luggage. Thanks.

Absolutely no problem with that.

I agree. There should be no problem with it. I had mine with me for a year after my heart surgery, as I was to keep a twice daily log of my BP, rate, and respiration, all at rest.

I carry my CPAP machine with me all over the globe. Medical devices are not only allowed in carry-on luggage, i would recommend it. Just like medicine and jewelry, the airlines are not responsible if they lose it.

Another thing to keep in mind with any medical device, it does not count towards your number of carry-on pieces. I know your device is not that large, but some people's devices are larger and take their own bag.

I know that my CPAP doesn't count as a carry-on piece, but have you ever tried lugging a CPAP, a personal item (in my case a backpack), and a regular sized carry-on? I check bags just to not have to lug all of that.

Edit: I check my regular bag, my backpack (normally carrying a laptop) and my CPAP stay with me.
