Question about Sunbeam Manuel Blood Pressure Monitor W/ Stethoscope

The gauge does not work on the manual bp cuff

I have a sunbeam sphygomomanometer that is attached to a manual bp cuff. and the gauge is not calibrated right any more. it starts at 200. and then when pumped up to it goes to 300 then over to the correct start position of 20 then on up. and hence it does not give an accurate reading when i take bp. is there a way to recalibrate it? or do i need to get a new one? if i need a new one, where do i go for one? thanks so much.

If u look at the bottom of the gauge there should be a small hole if u insert a small screwdriver or similar u should be able to turn it until it begins at zero if that doesnt work then u probably need a new one

It sounds broken, calibration won't help it.
just go buy a new one at walmart. They are in the area of the pharmacy. I think they run about $20.

How to calibrate omega 1445 bp monitor


My first question is how do you know it's not accurate? I would tee in a digital manometer (measure in mmHg), wrap the cuff around a glass bottle and let the cuff inflate. When it fully inflates the cuff...look at the readings between the monitor and your manometer. If they are within a few digits of one another, I would leave it alone.

Inaccuracies with patient nibp readings are usually related to improper cuff placement on the patient. There's usually a mark on the cuff to indicate where the cuff should be placed in relation to the brachial artery. I believe this unit utilizes oscillatory technology to determine readings and an improperly placed cuff can create inaccurate readings.

The needle on the Sphygmomanometer gauge will not return to its zero reading. Otherwise it seems to function correctly.


This will happen sometimes, if the BP Cuff has been dropped and the gauge gets stuck. Have you tried tapping on the gauge with your finger, to get it to return to 0 ? Also. be sure the thumb screw air valve is fully open and the cuff is completely deflated. The gauge is easily replaceable, if necessary. Just contact the manufacturer of your BP Cuff or if you prefer Sphygmomanometer.

Thanks for choosing FixYa.

What brand of BP Monitor?

Is this a personal BP monitor?
Or is it a hospital BP monitor?

Well.. you have to check the cuff to see if it's OK. Most of the errors are because of the cuff which has a balloon inside the cuff.

It depends on your model.

On some models you can take off the cuff line. Check if there is air coming out from the BP machine. If there ir air, it must be probably the cuff.

If both the cuff and machine is OK, then the problem must be the machine calibration.

Is it electronic or manual BP?

Hope it helped.

God Bless You!

What does it mean when you get a reading then 3 consecutive readings say EE


What is the pattern of the EE? If the two E's are on the same line, then you didn't inflate the cuff to a sufficient pressure. (Wait 2-3 minutes before trying again and then inflate the cuff to 40 mmHg higher than the previous attempt.)

If the Es are arranged vertically, then you overinflated the cuff. Any [ressure above 300 mmHg is beyond the range that this bp monitor can handle. If you reached this point by getting several underinflation alerts, ask your medical professional to test your bp and recommend the starting inflation level that you need.

Make sure that you have the cuff on properly. You may need to consider a different bp pressure cuff size to get an accurate reading.

I hope this.

Sunbeam7650 Don't know how to properly set the Pressure Selector


The switch tells the machine how high to pressurize the cuff when it starts. It needs to somewhat higher than your normal systolic pressure (mm Hg). (So if your systolic (top number) bp is regularly between 100 and 130, set the switch to 160.) Similarly if your systolic pressure is regularly above 130 but below 170, set it to 200)

I hope this helps.

Readings vary widely withing 5 mins. when repeated


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.
