Open Question

The screen on my blood pressure monitor flashes an hourglass & restarts take BP. What does this mean?

The BPM is model BP3MW1-1WCVS. When I take my wife's BP the BPM increases pressure, decrease pressure. Then an ICON, looking like an hour-glass, starts flashing on the screen. The BP readings drop to 10, then countdown to 0. That is followed by a restart, repeating this cycle 2-3 times before we get a reading.

SOURCE: Blood pressure reading 150/76. Manual Blood pressure 130/72

A monitor using Hg is only a valid monitor reading. Most electronic devices produce approximate results and are mostly good for taking several readings daily and obtaining a mean daily BP. Device calibration appears to be not accessible to the the user.Also, depending on age & condition of your dad, sequential reading must take place after elapse of enough time for circulation to be at steady state in the arm again, or if you immediately after a measurement make another, even with the same monitor you will obtain a different result.

In all most all cases, the manufacturer has to do the recalibration. This is because it has to be certified as correct. Contact the manufacturer for instructions on how to return it. Most charge little or nothing for this service.

SOURCE: what does it mean in the bottom left when it reads 60 then flashes to 01? can't get another reading

The "60" number reading that came onto the screen was your pulse rate. If you can't get the monitor to check your blood pressure again, you may need to replace the batteries, the charge may be too low in them.

How I can test the accuracy of the Wlagreen blood pressure monitor


If you don't have highly accurate static pressure meter and BPM simulator you are not able to fully test the accuracy of a BPM. However, the simple way to test it is use the same human body to compare the Dia. & Sys. result you got from this walgreen mahine and the traditional manual mercury type BPM.

Can you calibrate omron hem-711?


Depends what you mean by calibrate. If you mean affect adjustment - no, this is not possible. If you mean test the device for accuracy, then the answer is yes. All good quality home use Blood Pressure Monitors (BPM), should meet international standards, typically this is an accuracy of +/- 3 mmHg. To have a BPM checked for accuracy you should take it to an authorised reseller. Typically this should be done every two years.
