Question about Medline Digital Blood Pressure Units ()

1 Answer

My medline bp monitor md2001 seems to have stopped working. The readout shows as ER 3. The cuff will not inflate. The batteries are good. Tried unplugging airtube and reinserting it. I can hear the hiss of air coming out of somewhere very near to the exhaust port. Before this, It would go up to about 150 systolic, then drop 20 or thirty points, then go back up to a similar high range, then stop and give an error message.

    I will contact Medline. I understand why you can't tell me how to repair it myself. BTW I tested the batteries and they were fine.

Ok genrally a error 3 code means the batteires are low or the air pump inside is gone. Now we do not recommend you fixing the pump yourself per our Terms of service we cannot show you how to repair medical devices. As a Medical Asstant IO have experienced when these die this message was indicating its time for a new unit. Now do not shoot the messenger here it might be your battery not powering the unit correctly. Do not attempt repairs you will get bad results. You can call medline and have the replace the unit for you. let me know i am here to assit

please do click the accept button for my efforts.

How to calibrate omega 1445 bp monitor


My first question is how do you know it's not accurate? I would tee in a digital manometer (measure in mmHg), wrap the cuff around a glass bottle and let the cuff inflate. When it fully inflates the cuff...look at the readings between the monitor and your manometer. If they are within a few digits of one another, I would leave it alone.

Inaccuracies with patient nibp readings are usually related to improper cuff placement on the patient. There's usually a mark on the cuff to indicate where the cuff should be placed in relation to the brachial artery. I believe this unit utilizes oscillatory technology to determine readings and an improperly placed cuff can create inaccurate readings.

What does it mean when you get a reading then 3 consecutive readings say EE


What is the pattern of the EE? If the two E's are on the same line, then you didn't inflate the cuff to a sufficient pressure. (Wait 2-3 minutes before trying again and then inflate the cuff to 40 mmHg higher than the previous attempt.)

If the Es are arranged vertically, then you overinflated the cuff. Any [ressure above 300 mmHg is beyond the range that this bp monitor can handle. If you reached this point by getting several underinflation alerts, ask your medical professional to test your bp and recommend the starting inflation level that you need.

Make sure that you have the cuff on properly. You may need to consider a different bp pressure cuff size to get an accurate reading.

I hope this.

WITH AUTOMATIC CUFF BLOOD PRESSURE MONITOR GETTING ERROR


E might represents insufficient inflation for your mom. For automatic inflation monitors usually there is a mechanism to keep inflating the cuff to higher pressures for people with higher BP. Check how is done. In some auto monitors,while cuff is inflated you keep pressing on START button until pressure reaches to some 15 to 20 mmHg higher than the pressure that auto usually stops and displays E.

most likely when you dropped it on the concrete floor the compact of it hitting the floor has either jarred something on the inside of it and has caused it to not work properly or find the papers to the machine and restart the directions for it. i hope that something i have said may work, good luck!
