SOURCE: blood pressure monitor problem

The two numbers that measure your blood pressure are written like a fraction: one number on top and one on the bottom. The top number in a blood pressure reading refers to the systolic pressure. It measures the pressure inside your blood vessels at the moment your heart beats. The bottom number represents your diastolic pressure. It measures the pressure in your blood vessels when your heart is resting between heartbeats. A good blood pressure for most people will be under 120/80, as most people with blood pressure problems have high blood pressure. However, extreme low blood pressure can also be a serious health concern.

SOURCE: Omron hem-704C blood pressure monitor show down

If your HEM 704C fell hard, it is probably the pressure transducer that is faulty, broken. To my experience it is cheaper to buy a new one then to have it repaired by a technician

it will keep recording the latest readings, and auto delete the 20th one.
I think if the batteries are removed for an extended time it will zero, but then you have to go through the set up again

SOURCE: My Omron HEM-712C digital blood pressure monitor

First, I do not believe there is any accurate way to measure blood pressure without having a valve installed; not a practical alternative.
The standard method using an arm-cuff and stethoscope is highly dependent on the person doing the measurement. Once my hearing started to fail, I had to go to a digital meter and found after three of these which failed and comparing my current Samsung to three different methods; manual, an elaborate 'calibrated' digital on a stand and another 'calibrated' cuff-type during an examination by a professional, none of these agreed better than 10-15 mm and the worst was 25-30 mm apart.
Using the average of those 'profis,' my current wrist-type digital measures about 10 points low on both systolic and diastolic so I just ignore the absolute numbers and use it only to determine relative deviations. For that, mine is repeatable enough.

When I took my blood pressure SOMETIMES there's a heartbeat symbol next to my pulse reading, but SOMETIMES NOT! What does that mean and what the difference?


If you give me the make and model I can try and find your instruction manual. Reply as a COMMENT.

Blood pressure monitors can also give you your pulse rate. When the heart symbol is there, it has found it and is counting and when the heart symbol is missing it hasn't. This would normally be caused by the cuff not being placed on the upper arm in quite the right location.

What does the heart on the monitor means?


The blinking heart symbol indicates that the unit is slowly decreasing the pressure in the wrist cuff. This is when the unit is finding your Diastolic blood pressure. This is a normal symbol on most automatic blood pressure monitors. When a nurse or doctor uses a manual blood pressure cuff and listens to the blood flow, they will record the systolic pressure when they first hear the heart beat. Then they record the diastolic measurement when they can no longer hear the heart beat.

The manual for the KS-7902 is available here: http://pharmasupply.com/wordpress/pdf/wristman .

I hope this helps.

Manual for cvs model BP3MU1-1E


fakonobea, it means pulse / diastolic / systolic. Pulse is how many times your heart is beating per minute. Systolic is the pressure when your heart is contacting; it is the top number. Diastolic is the bottom number and it is the pressure when your heart is at rest. Normal pressure is 120 systolic and 80 diastolic, or 120/80.


If you have further questions, I suggest talking to your doctor or health care professional, they will be happy to tell you.

I NEED AN OWNERS MANUAL FOR BA-616W ...GOT IT 2 YRS AGO AND ONLY HAVE THE INSTRUCTION SHEET ..BUT I NEED TO KNOW HOW TO READ THE NUMBERS AND WHAT THEY MEAN. PLEASE HELP


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.

How do you read a wrist tech monitor and what does the number mean?


The wrist monitor, much like ones in doctor's offices, reads your blood pressure and pulse rate.
The large numbers are your blood pressure reading. The Top number is the Systolic and the bottom number is the Diastolic. If you doctor or his nurse has taken your blood pressure and told you what it was, they said for example, 140 over 80, which on your chart would be listed as 140/80. The smaller number at the bottom of the screen is your pulse rate. Some monitors will indicate if the heart beat is regular or irregular. Depending on your age, general health and life style, a normal blood pressure would be in the range of (Systolic) 120 to 130 over (Diastolic) 70 to 80. But, your normal range may be different based on what I said above. Only your personal physician can tell you what yours is or should be.

When using a wrist monitor it must be properly placed on the wrist (1" above the heal of the hand). You must remain very still and try not to talk, until the monitor has completed cycling. Also, having your hand/wrist at heart level, helps to ontain a more accurate reading. Never take readings back to back. Wait at least 2 minutes in between sessions.

If this helped you, please be kind enough to let me know.
