Re: WITH AUTOMATIC CUFF BLOOD PRESSURE MONITOR GETTING...
E might represents insufficient inflation for your mom. For automatic inflation monitors usually there is a mechanism to keep inflating the cuff to higher pressures for people with higher BP. Check how is done. In some auto monitors,while cuff is inflated you keep pressing on START button until pressure reaches to some 15 to 20 mmHg higher than the pressure that auto usually stops and displays E.

Much easier to go to a store, like Walgreens and get an inexpensive ( like 15 dollars) automatic wrist cuff blood pressure monitor, that will give you accurate and quick readings of your heart rate, and blood pressure, systolic and diastolic, automatically.
According to the Owners Manual, the EE Message shown on the display or the blood pressure value is displayed when an excessively low (or high) reading is detected OR as a result of one of the following:
1. Cuff has been placed incorrectly. Solution: Wrap cuff properly so that it's positioned correct.
2. Did you talk or move during measurement? Solution: Measure again. Keep wrist steady at heart level during measurement.
3. Shaking or moving of the wrist with the cuff on. Solution: Same as # 2.
NOTE: Be sure the cuff is placed exactly as pictured on the face of the box, 1/2" above the heel of the hand.
Make sure that the cuf is over your artery, there will be a little plastic point in the cuff to show you where it goes, which is right in the fold of the upper arm from the elbow..... Take care.... Guy
An upper arm monitor will come with a cuff that you need to wrap around your arm. If you use a cuff that is the wrong size for you, your reading will not be correct. Measure around your upper arm at the midpoint between your shoulder and elbow. Most monitors will come with a medium sized cuff. You may have to order a different sized cuff separately.
