I have a manual ABCO sphygmomanometer / BP Cuff that the needle on it won't move anymore even though the cuff is inflating. It is stuck in the correct/0 position, but does not move with inflation. Any thoughts on how to fix?

Short of replacing the gauge, there is no other solution.

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.

The needle on the Sphygmomanometer gauge will not return to its zero reading. Otherwise it seems to function correctly.


This will happen sometimes, if the BP Cuff has been dropped and the gauge gets stuck. Have you tried tapping on the gauge with your finger, to get it to return to 0 ? Also. be sure the thumb screw air valve is fully open and the cuff is completely deflated. The gauge is easily replaceable, if necessary. Just contact the manufacturer of your BP Cuff or if you prefer Sphygmomanometer.

Thanks for choosing FixYa.

I just tried to send ;you this so may be repeat. The needle on my LIfesource ua-200 bp cuff is stuck on 40; can I fix it myself? Valerie


Valerie, have you tried tapping on the gauge with your finger? Usually, that will cause it to release and return to zero. Also, make sure you have purged all the air out of the cuff and that the finger screw is completely open.

If all that fails contact the manufacturer, A&D Engineering aka Life Source (800) 726-709, as your B cuff has a 2 year warranty.

Hope this helps you solve the problem.

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 squeezes my arm too much and it hurts. The reading is way too high everytime. I don't know how to adjust it.


do not inflate the cuff too much. if you know your usual blood pressure, just add about 5-10 mmHg when you inflate it so that you won't hurt yourself. for example, if your BP is usually 130/90, squeeze the cuff to 135-140 only. but if you doubt that your BP is way much higher than that by assessing on what you are feeling, just do not squeeze the cuff further than 200.

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!
