Calibration of the sphygmomanometer

Several of our Moore BP sphygmomanometer's are no longer calibrated. Does anyone know how to calibrate these? Moore's customer service was unable to help.

Unscrew the silver ring from around the dial face. Lift off the clear cover. Gently pull the needle off the pin. Re-align needle. Gently push the needle back on to the pin taking care not to push to hard or bend the needle. I hope this corrects your problem.

For Needles that won't come off. Use the same instructions as above until you get to the needle removal. Instead place small sharp object in center to stabilize it and gentle push/slide needle to zero. Tacks usually work as the small sharp object.

The spring for recoil in a mechanical pointer will over time lose its force, therefore, the needle will no longer continue to identify in place by an overpressure generated offset, there is a deformation caused to the spring and across the board are going to give a different resultant force on mechanical progress, changing the pointer would only since can eliminate the evil, but keep in mind that the measurement at some points now may differ because of different operating point in the mechanics. but its in this case maybe negligible but beware on some medical meters its very important the mechanical indicators can vary greatly in repositioning of a needle pointer.

To adjust needle to zero: If the adjustment screw cannot be found on the outside, remove the tubing from the meter. Insert a small screwdriver into the barb until you feel resistance. Gently turn the screwdriver until it meshes with the screw. Turn to adjust the needle back to zero
To check calibration/accuracy: Use a "T" connector to hook up a known accurate meter into the system and compare the readings. If they match, great. If not, the meter needs to be returned to the manufacturer.

Eck troubleshooting i need person who can repair this.


Generally, the manufacturer of the BP Monitor offers repair service for their products. Best advice, contact their Customer Service Dept. The number should be in your Owner's Manual. If it's still under warranty, it should cost you nothing for the repair. You may only have to pay the shipping cost to the manufacturer Also, because the unit will need to be re-calibrated after any repairs or made, only the manufacture can do that. Because they have to certify the calibration is accurate.

Hope this helps you .

Sphygmomanometer is settled at 190 and the pin wont calibrate no matter what i try.


It needs a service, but it would be better to throw it away and buy an electronic one. The one you have is notoriously inaccurate. The new electronic ones are cheap, very accurate and calibrate themselves.

Blood pressure reading 150/76. Manual Blood pressure 130/72


A monitor using Hg is only a valid monitor reading. Most electronic devices produce approximate results and are mostly good for taking several readings daily and obtaining a mean daily BP. Device calibration appears to be not accessible to the the user.Also, depending on age & condition of your dad, sequential reading must take place after elapse of enough time for circulation to be at steady state in the arm again, or if you immediately after a measurement make another, even with the same monitor you will obtain a different result.

Sphygmomanometer


most likely when you dropped it on the concrete floor the compact of it hitting the floor has either jarred something on the inside of it and has caused it to not work properly or find the papers to the machine and restart the directions for it. i hope that something i have said may work, good luck!
