Mod hem 704c reads high compared to doctors blood pressure readings


There are many things that can affect the readings. Cuff size is one of the biggest. If the cuff is on the small side it will not read as accurately as a cuff that fits properly. Keeping the cuff at heart level is important as well. Many people have to put the cuff lower on the arm if the cuff is too small and then they don't raise the cuff to heart level. This will give a higher reading. What is most important is to ensure that the readings are consistent. While they may be higher than the doctors office, as long as they are not dangerous, use them as a baseline and monitor fluctuations over time to ensure that your medications are doing their intended work.

How do I calibrate the Welby Health Body Fat scale? The scale in the picture is NOT the scale in question.


Scales are supposed to show correct weigt. Who told you to "calibrate" it? Your scale is not working correctly. Return it and ask for a good scale

The reading is off by 20 points, when I take it to the doctor


Several things can cause this difference in the readings:

1. Anxiety. When you take it at home in a relaxed atmosphere, it probably reads lower than at the doctor's office. It's commonly referred to as "White coat hypertension". In other words you're more nervous in the doctor's office. Or just before you went to the doctor's office or on the way, you drank a cup of coffee or a soda that had caffeine in it or smoked a cigarette. All of those things can temporarily raise your blood pressure.for up to an hour.

2. The BP Monitor needs to be re-calibrated . In which case, the manufacturer will have to do this. Most do it at no charge. You just pay for the shipping to them. Find the contact information in your Owner's Manual and give them a call. Make sure you have the model number handy, when you call.

Hope this helped you. Please let me know. Thanks.

My Omron HEM-780 needs to be calibrated. It seems to read about 20 points lower than the blood pressure unit used in my doctor's office. I am not sure if the HEM-780 is capable of being calibrated or...


Recalibration normally has to be done by the manufacturer. As they have to certify the calibration. Keep in mind, that it is not unusual for your BP to read a bit higher at the doctor's office, than it does at home. It's sarcastically called "White coat hypertension." Which translated means, your blood pressure rises a bit at the doctor's office due to anxiety. Or it's being taken at a different time of day, than you take it at home, in a relaxed atmosphere.

Hope this helped you.

Our Omron BP 755 is reading high. How can we adjust so it reading correctly


My first concern, is how do you know it's reading high? Did you compare the reading(s) with one taken in your doctor's office? If that is the case, it may need to be re-calibrated. In which case, only the manufacturer can do that, as it has to be certified as accurate. Most manufacturers do it at no charge or a small charge, plus shipping. If you are relying on the reading you take at home, then it is well worth it to have it re-calibrated.

Hope this helps you. Please let me know.

Systolic rate is higher than when I was in the Doctor's office the other day. I believe it needs to be re-calibrated. Where can I go to have it re-calibrated.


Jean, recalibration has to be done by the manufacturer of the monitor. They usually offer this at no charge, other than the shipping cost.

Hope this helps you.

After 5 years, the unit probably needs re-calibrating. In which case, you'll need to have the manufacturer do that. Most off that service free of charge or just a minimal charge. Contact Omron.

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!
