You should not recheck BP until at least 15 minutes after the first check because it will always get higher on reading even with a manual BP machine. As a retired nurse I have both an automatic HoMedics which I I lost the manual for and a old type arm BP cuff. My automatic is pretty close to the other cuff in readings so I know it is close. Try waiting for a while before you recheck and not talk or move around when you take it.

Why is the blood pressure reading not consistent whenever I do it twice? Even if I do it almost the same as the first one, the difference is quite significant.


You must allow at least 5 min at rest in between readings . Difference is caused by occlusion of the target artery.

How to test monitor for accuracy


Best thing is to take it to your doctor and compare his readings, under the same conditions, as BP varies a lot in one person.

I take 4 consecutive readings (within a minute) and get 4 widely varying readings. How do I get an accurate reading with this device?


4 consecutive readings in a minute? No wonder you're getting widely varying readings. Your wrist or arm is not having time to recover from the constriction of the cuff. Try doing only two and waiting at least 30 to 40 seconds in between.

The best way to do it, is take one reading in your left arm and the other in your right arm. If they match or are within a few points of each other, the cuff is probably accurate.

Also, on your next visit to your doctor, take your cuff with you. After they take your vital signs at the doctors office, properly apply your cuff and compare your cuff's reading with theirs. If they are within a few points of each other that's fine.

How to check youself / blood pressure for accuracy i get to different reading the first time then upon checking for accuracy the second time the reading is always different


Hello Dear

All Digital equipments vary in its reading. To get the accurate reading take three readings one after the other and then the average of the reading is the accurate one.
Usually the readings varies plus minus 2 or 3 to the accurate reading.

Readings are too high compared to doctor's readings


There are several reasons for 'too high' readings; the cuff is too small for your arm, the muscles of the arm are not relaxed (squeezes on the blood vessels along with the cuff), arm not elevated to about mid chest level, BP tkaen before 5 minute sit/rest.
You can take your cuff into the doctors office to have it checked by the nurse and compared to theirs, rest 5 minutes ther as well befor taking BP. Their cuff could be too big for you and so would give a false low reading.
If the calibration is off, you will have to return it to the manufacturer - check their web site or call the customer support line.
Congratulations on taking an active role in your health care!

Hello; My Omron HEM 712C shows message: EE Can


'EE' means cuff is underinflating. Re wrap cuff with varying amounts of pressure and restart [wait 2 minutes between readings].

Wide variability in readings taken within a ten-minute span on same patient. From 122/95 to 104/55 same patient, different arms. Patient being monitored for hypotension.


Time between readings must be enough to allow circulation in the arm reaches steady state again, or else if readings are close to each other, each subsequent reading is lower than preceding ones due to previous pressing the arteries and limiting blood circulation. 5 min is good enough time between readings and averaging. Massage the arm before next reading.

Irratic BP readings

When the pressure comes up on the monitor the top number was reading EE. It did it three times. I can't find the instructions. The machine is an Omron model: 741CREL. Thanks.


EE=Cuff under-inflated=not inflated enough. While cuff is inflated, keep pressing START button until pressure reaches 15-20 mmHg higher than the pressure when it stops and displays EE. Make sure at least 5 min allowed between readings.
