    I have replaced the batteries with no change in unit problem

    I replaced the plastic tubes which did not solve the problem. (inside the unit). I am throwing the device away because the pump does not work or it is an electrical failure. Thanks for your help.

You haven't provided the exact brand and model of the monitor so the only thing that i can do is an educated guess: the power source of the device (the batteries if it's a portable unit) have aged and are incapable of providing  the energy needed. Because of that the pump is incapable of providing the required pressure and all the readings are messed up. Replace the batteries and make sure their contacts aren't corroded.

    In that case the unit must be defective_ the air pump is faulty. Since repairing it will cost you more than the unit is worth then just throw it away and buy a new one.



    Or you could try to fix it yourself: open the unit (remove the screws and force the clips off) and try to find out why the pump failed - maybe it has a puncture in plastic pipe leading to the cuff air bladder

    My wife's wasn't pumping at all. I found there were two pins under the cough. One of those was stuck. I just pushed on it to get it back in to place. Works like new now

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.

I just put new batteries in my Omron HEM-780. Doesn't work. When it finishes deflating it always says E7. What's going on?


Hi library336

The Omron HEM-780 generally has 5 Error Messages:


1]
ERROR MESSAGE: A single (E) Error message indicates movement during the measurement process, resulting in an inconclusive reading or the absence of a Blood Pressure or Pulse reading caused by a weak Arterial Pulse.

SOLUTION: Remove the cuff. Wait 10-15 minutes. Repeat measurement using approximately 40mmHg more pressure than in the previous measurement.

2]
ERROR MESSAGE: A Double (EE) Error message indicates an under-inflated cuff. Remove the cuff. Wait 2-3 minutes.

SOLUTION: Repeat measurement using approximately 40mmHg more pressure than in the previous, under-inflated measurement.

3]
ERROR MESSAGE: An E directly below another E Error message indicates an over-inflated cuff (in excess of 300 mmHg). Remove the cuff.

SOLUTION: Wait 2-3 minutes. Repeat measurement using approximately less pressure than in the previous, over-inflated measurement.


4]
ERROR: A Blank Screen indicates low or depleted batteries.

SOLUTION: Remove and replace all 4 AA Batteries. Do not mix used and new batteries.

5]
ERROR MESSAGE: An (Er) Error Message indicates an abnormal memory function caused by a faulty internal component.

SOLUTION: Call Omron Customer Service, Toll Free, on (in the USA) 1-800-634-4850 (or on the equivalent Toll Free or Freefone Number in your country).

I hope this helps.

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.

The cuff is inflating but is taking a long time to deflate and cutting off the circulation. can this be rectified?


hello
Usually in blood pressure apparatus these type of problems are very common. So do not worry.
Actually when you inflate the cuff the pressure goes into the pipe then unscrewing(mercury bp apparatus) or diflating (digital or manual apparatus) the cuff can release the air. There may be two possibilities that why the your equip is not difflating.
1. either there is a blockage in diflating Knob
2 Or in the pipe
The easiest way is to clean the piping by yourself or take it to the nearest medical appliance store, he will clean it for you.
Good day

More frequently my Omron HEM-780 seems flaky. It would apply pressure and count up to 112-120 then start deflating, then inflating, etc. Then it would count down by units and end up displaying E. It would...


Part of the problem may the the placement of the cuff. Generally, if it's not placed correctly. the cuff will re-inflate trying to find the correct stopping point for inflation. Any movement of your arm could cause this. Also, if you haven't replaced the batteries lately, you should do that. Also check to make sure there are no air leaks in the rubber tubing or the cuff. Check your Owners Manual for the exact placement of the cuff.

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.

My bulb deflates after one squeeze.


you may want to check to see if the holes is connected tightly to the cuff on both ends and you need to check the bulb if it has a knob on it because some bulbs have numbers on them which can be set to release air and you want to make sure that it has a proper setting on and if that is not it then you may need a new bulb, i did. i hope this works for you and good luck!
