SOURCE: I keep getting low readings.
you should already be dead if your bp is 196/119.normal runs 120/80.hypertension starts at 140/90. wrist bp units are often incorrect. dump nurse and cuff. go see your doc or use the free units at kroger

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.

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.
