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.

When I took my blood pressure SOMETIMES there's a heartbeat symbol next to my pulse reading, but SOMETIMES NOT! What does that mean and what the difference?


If you give me the make and model I can try and find your instruction manual. Reply as a COMMENT.

Blood pressure monitors can also give you your pulse rate. When the heart symbol is there, it has found it and is counting and when the heart symbol is missing it hasn't. This would normally be caused by the cuff not being placed on the upper arm in quite the right location.

I have a blood pressure sphygmomanometer, how do you take a blood pressure reading and what is normal?


Much easier to go to a store, like Walgreens and get an inexpensive ( like 15 dollars) automatic wrist cuff blood pressure monitor, that will give you accurate and quick readings of your heart rate, and blood pressure, systolic and diastolic, automatically.

My wrist cuff monitor seems to be reading low. Is there a way to get it checked or calibrated?


The next time you go to your doctor, take the wrist cuff monitor with you. As they always do, the nurse or doctor will check you vital signs. After they do that and they've told you what your blood pressure and pulse readings are, correctly place the cuff monitor on your wrist and check you BP and Pulse with it. Compare the reading from the cuff monitor to what your doctor got. If it's within a few points, it's no big deal. If it's way off, than there's a problem with the cuff.

Remember, whenever using a cuff monitor, always keep your wrist at heart level for the most accurate reading. Once it's activated, remain completely still and don't move your wrist, until it has finished cycling.

What is advantage of two tubes over one?


see friend .
we have two tubes .
1 one is for pumping the air so bag fills up.
2second contains the tube for telling pulse rate .
it is easy as we have systolic as well as dystolic pressure.
through two tubes we can have better reading.

WITH AUTOMATIC CUFF BLOOD PRESSURE MONITOR GETTING ERROR


Try different locations. The sensor must be over a vain to pick up the pulse. Locate the point on the cuff where the sensor is, and place this over the elbow. That should work. Good luck.
