After working in the healthcare field for a while, I never trust automatic blood pressure cuffs or machines. They usually always give a high reading, I usually check with a manual reading after getting a high reading from a automatic reading.

This is an error state.. Probably too noisy kortoff sounds to register if too high for cheap home units.. Probably need to test with cuff and stethoscope.

What does a blood presure reading of 221/ 91 mean


It's pretty high on both ends. If they are both close though, it can not be a terribly bad story though. 120/80mmHg is typical normal values. Be sure cuff is at heart level and stationary when measuring. Systolic is crazy high.

Why would i get an occasional high reading over 100 on the bottom? is it a malfuntion?


You need to be sure your cuff is at heart level when reading. If cuff is down by your lap, reading will be abnormally high this way..
systolic is when sounds cuts off.. Diastolic is when they pick back up again. Does that make sense to you?

My blood pressure is 110/95 and my heart rate is 124/bpm. I am pregnant what does that mean?


110/95 Blood Pressure
Is 110/95 Good Blood Pressure or High Blood Pressure?

There are two parts or two separate numbers referred to as blood pressure: Systolic/Diastolic. If the blood pressure is 110/95 (110 over 95), it means that the systolic pressure is 110 and the diastolic pressure is 95.

110/95 blood pressure can also be read as 110/95 mm Hg, or 110/95 millimeters of mercury. The 110 mm Hg Systolic refers to the pressure in the arteries when the heart beats, and the 95 mm Hg Diastolic is the pressure in the arteries between heartbeats.

When determining if 110/95 is a good blood pressure, we looked at the American Heart Association's blood pressure chart.

Blood Pressure Systolic Diastolic Normal Less than 120 Less than 80 Prehypertension 120 - 139 80 - 89 High Blood Pressure
(Hypertension) Stage 1 140 - 159 90 - 99 High Blood Pressure
(Hypertension) Stage 2 160 or higher 100 or higher Hypertensive Crisis
(Emergency care needed) Higher than 180 Higher than 110
For 110/95 to be good, both numbers must fit into the "normal" category above. Otherwise, it will fall into other categories of High Blood Pressure.

Systolic reading of 110 is in the Normal range.
Diastolic reading of 95 is in High Blood Pressure (Hypertension) Stage 1 range.
Therefore, 110/95 is High Blood Pressure (Hypertension Stage 1).

How do you read a wrist tech monitor and what does the number mean?


The wrist monitor, much like ones in doctor's offices, reads your blood pressure and pulse rate.
The large numbers are your blood pressure reading. The Top number is the Systolic and the bottom number is the Diastolic. If you doctor or his nurse has taken your blood pressure and told you what it was, they said for example, 140 over 80, which on your chart would be listed as 140/80. The smaller number at the bottom of the screen is your pulse rate. Some monitors will indicate if the heart beat is regular or irregular. Depending on your age, general health and life style, a normal blood pressure would be in the range of (Systolic) 120 to 130 over (Diastolic) 70 to 80. But, your normal range may be different based on what I said above. Only your personal physician can tell you what yours is or should be.

When using a wrist monitor it must be properly placed on the wrist (1" above the heal of the hand). You must remain very still and try not to talk, until the monitor has completed cycling. Also, having your hand/wrist at heart level, helps to ontain a more accurate reading. Never take readings back to back. Wait at least 2 minutes in between sessions.

If this helped you, please be kind enough to let me know.

I can't find my user manual and I forgot what the 160, 200, and 240 represent.


Normally, the 160, 200 & 240 are the systolic (top) reading of the blood pressure. Again, that's under normal conditions. But, even so, the 200 & 240 are extremely high. The diastolic is the bottom reading. With a systolic reading of 200 or 240, the diastolic reading is usually very high too. In which case, it would indicate the person has hypertension (abnormally high blood pressure), which can be a serious situation.

The nornal blood pressure for a healthy individual is 120 to 140 over 80 or less. Age, weight, smoker or nonsmoker and other health issues, can affect this normal reading one way or the other.

As an EMT for over 25 years, I would be concerned if I had a patient with a blood pressure reading of 200/120 (200 over 120). And even more so, if their blood pressure reading was 240/120 or higher.

If you have had or are having readings on the high side as I described, I would recommend that you consult your personal doctor as soon as possible.

My Walgreens Digital Blood Pressure Monitor pumps up to diastolic 118-122 then stops and deflates and the screen reads Err 2. Can you please tell me what the problem might be? Thank you.


Your Blood Pressure may be to high for the reading. Try to adjust the cuff and restart. Are you sure it is diastolic reading and not systolic?

Monitor stops and starts again, goes up to a very high pressure and invariably gives a high reading, is this a fault


Dear Arthur: Try different placement on your arm. Try the other arm. Try it on someone else. You may have either a broken machine or very high systolic pressure. In which case SEE YOUR DR!. Dr Ron Grassi,DC.,MS. Jupiter,Florida. USA. www.drgrassi.com 6ec8f87.jpg
