SOURCE: I NEED AN OWNERS MANUAL

As a 30 year EMT, I think I can help you.

There's 2 numbers that make up your blood pressure. The top number is called the Systolic pressure. The bottom number is call the Diastolic pressure. When a blood pressure is taken, it's measuring the pressure that the heart is producing when it pumps blood through the arteries. For example, what's considered a normal blood pressure in a healthy individual is in the range of 120/80. Of course age, life style and other health conditions, play a role in what yours may be. A person with High blood pressure or Hypertension would have a blood pressure of over 160 - Systolic and over 90+ Diastolic. 90 is actually the borderline for hypertension. That's why I indicated 90+.

The other reading on your monitor is your heart rate or pulse rate. It's how many beats your heart completes in one minute. It also indicates an irregular heart beat by the showing a small LED window on the left of the screen adjacent to the Systolic pressure reading, It will say IHB. Any movement or shaking or talking during the measurement can result in pulse irregularities. So hold very still when taking your blood pressure. This irregularity by itself is not of much concern, unless it shows up frequently. In which case, you should seek medical advice.

That covers just about all there is to know about what the readings mean. Armed with this, you should be able to effectively monitor your blood pressure and pulse rate and report them to your doctor.

Hope I was able to help you understand how it works and what it's telling you. if so, please let me know, by rating my response to you. Thanks and have a healthy day.

SOURCE: My Mother Has a Walgreen's

The M is the sign for a pressure failure - the unit can't detect the pressure in the cuff, the sensor for that has failed. Since it reads 0 pressure the pump is kept going and the only way to stop it is to power down the unit.
There is nothing you can do about that since there are no replacement parts available. Time for a new one. BTW the expected life for this unit is, as the manufacturer declares it, 2 years - yours has lasted more than twice, it has done its job beyond what was expected of it.

I need to order the arm cuff for model 1086CVS


What you show is a model number for a B/P cuff that is not one
shown for CVS. You also do not mention a size for the needed cuff.
Cuffs come in different sizes from Infant, Pediatric, Small Adult, Adult, Large Adult, Thigh.

CVS, and all the different manufacturers sell cuffs to fit monitors. Only the size of the cuff needed matters, and possibly the end fitting if something more is used other than just the rubber hose.

Look up any online company, or your local pharmacy and look for the replacement cuffs for monitors.

Why does my Walgreens digital blood pressure monitor keep giving an ERR4 message?


Here are the top 3 reasons for getting errors: 1. You're using the wrong-sized cuff. If you are extra large, you need a larger cuff. 2. You've incorrectly positioned your body. Ideally, your arm should be at the level of your heart. 3. You've placed the cuff incorrectly. Make sure the cuff is on your upper arm and the stethescope is placed over the place you feel the strongest pulse. I hope that helps!

My Blood Pressure comes up with E1 - what does this mean?


An E1 error can mean a number of things depending on the brand of your monitor and the way that you are trying to take your blood pressure. The general reason for E1 errors is to announce for whatever reason that the machine could not get a blood pressure reading.

Some common causes:
You did not let all of the air out of the blood pressure cuff before trying to take your blood pressure. Make sure that there is no air in the cuff by squeezing it or rolling it, prior to use to let out excess air.

Your blood pressure cannot be taken at this time. Sometimes this occurs if you are very nervous, overly excited, or have a fast heart rate. You can try sitting down and relaxing prior to taking your blood pressure.

You are using the wrong size cuff. If you are taking blood pressure on a small child, someone with a tiny arm, or someone with a large arm, the blood pressure cuff might not get an accurate reading. Many blood pressure monitor manufacturer's offer blood pressure cuffs ranging in size from small to extra large, and you should use the cuff that is most appropriate for the size of your arm.

You didn't line up the blood pressure cuff correctly on your arm. You can't just slap the cuff on your arm and expect it to work, it has to be lined up properly. Many companies put an arrow on the cuff to give you an idea with positioning.

You need to try a different spot on your arm. Occasionally some people cannot give a blood pressure reading on their upper arm for a variety of reasons, and you should try getting a reading on your lower arm.

If you are still having trouble with your blood pressure cuff, take your monitor with you to your next doctors appointment so that your doctor can show you how to use the monitor correctly.

User manual for equaline digital blood pressure monitor model BA-717A


No, it is not able to be calibrated by the user. If your arm is too large for the cuff it will read high. Most cuffs are made for small framed people. Try wrapping it around your lower arm and position it about 2-3 inches above the wrist. use the wrist to take the b.p.
