My Blood Pressure comes up with E1 - what does this mean?


An E1 error can mean a number of things depending on the brand of your monitor and the way that you are trying to take your blood pressure. The general reason for E1 errors is to announce for whatever reason that the machine could not get a blood pressure reading.

Some common causes:
You did not let all of the air out of the blood pressure cuff before trying to take your blood pressure. Make sure that there is no air in the cuff by squeezing it or rolling it, prior to use to let out excess air.

Your blood pressure cannot be taken at this time. Sometimes this occurs if you are very nervous, overly excited, or have a fast heart rate. You can try sitting down and relaxing prior to taking your blood pressure.

You are using the wrong size cuff. If you are taking blood pressure on a small child, someone with a tiny arm, or someone with a large arm, the blood pressure cuff might not get an accurate reading. Many blood pressure monitor manufacturer's offer blood pressure cuffs ranging in size from small to extra large, and you should use the cuff that is most appropriate for the size of your arm.

You didn't line up the blood pressure cuff correctly on your arm. You can't just slap the cuff on your arm and expect it to work, it has to be lined up properly. Many companies put an arrow on the cuff to give you an idea with positioning.

You need to try a different spot on your arm. Occasionally some people cannot give a blood pressure reading on their upper arm for a variety of reasons, and you should try getting a reading on your lower arm.

If you are still having trouble with your blood pressure cuff, take your monitor with you to your next doctors appointment so that your doctor can show you how to use the monitor correctly.

Neither of the cuffs on the Homedics S18729 Ultra-Deluxe Automatic Blood Pressure Monitor work. They do not fit well around my arm and constantly slip while inflating. I don't know if it is a design flaw...


Robert, I'm not sure that the cuffs would be interchangeable. But, I suspect the problem you're having with the cuff is operator error. Speaking from experience, it's somewhat difficult at best, to apply and arm cuff to yourself. It does take some practice, but if you can get the cuff snugly in place, it should inflate properly. If you want to pursue with interchanging the cuff, contact HoMedics at 800-469-3342, to see if it's possible. Perhaps, you should get a BP Monitor that has a wrist cuff. They're a lot easier to apply and use.

Dear Edward: Likely, either cuff not tight enough or not in correct location on your arm or not holding device at correct height. Make sure you use Lithium Ion batteries. Try it on someone else. Dr Ron Grassi,Jupiter,Florida.USA. www.DrGrassi.com 30ad4e8.jpg
