Most of the Walgreen's Automatic BP Monitors are manufactured by HoMedics. I'm not sure yours is or isn't. Try to locate your Owner's Manual, as it will tell you who manufactured it. Most have a 5 year limited warranty, as long as you have your Proof of Purchase.

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.

As a 30 year EMT, I think I can help you.

There's 2 numbers that make up your blood pressure. The top number is called the Systolic pressure. The bottom number is call the Diastolic pressure. When a blood pressure is taken, it's measuring the pressure that the heart is producing when it pumps blood through the arteries. For example, what's considered a normal blood pressure in a healthy individual is in the range of 120/80. Of course age, life style and other health conditions, play a role in what yours may be. A person with High blood pressure or Hypertension would have a blood pressure of over 160 - Systolic and over 90+ Diastolic. 90 is actually the borderline for hypertension. That's why I indicated 90+.

The other reading on your monitor is your heart rate or pulse rate. It's how many beats your heart completes in one minute. It also indicates an irregular heart beat by the showing a small LED window on the left of the screen adjacent to the Systolic pressure reading, It will say IHB. Any movement or shaking or talking during the measurement can result in pulse irregularities. So hold very still when taking your blood pressure. This irregularity by itself is not of much concern, unless it shows up frequently. In which case, you should seek medical advice.

That covers just about all there is to know about what the readings mean. Armed with this, you should be able to effectively monitor your blood pressure and pulse rate and report them to your doctor.

Hope I was able to help you understand how it works and what it's telling you. if so, please let me know, by rating my response to you. Thanks and have a healthy day.

I am in Mexico city and my mother received a Walgreens Blood Pressure/pulse monitor as a gift. Her doctor realized the device lacks calibration when measuring her blood pressure manualy (at the doc's...

It may not need calibration. It may simply be where and how *********** is placing her arm when she takes her BP at home. She should keep her arm or wrist at chest (heart) level when using the monitor at home. Also, she should remain very still while doing this. If it needs recalibration, contact Homedics via their website.

I keep getting low readings. I had my bp read by a nurse yesterday it was 191/110 and today it was 196/119. The bp monitor model BA-616W 138/82. Please advise me?

you should already be dead if your bp is 196/119.normal runs 120/80.hypertension starts at 140/90. wrist bp units are often incorrect. dump nurse and cuff. go see your doc or use the free units at kroger

Dr. says I need to get my monitor calibrated.

send it back to the manufacture and tell them whats going on with it and they should be able to adjust it to the right settings or take it to a health care supply store, they may have a technician there who may be able to do it. good luck!
