I doubt in correctness of reading,my age 58


If you are doubting the Blood Pressure and Pulse readings, there must be a reason for these doubts. But, you failed to explain why you doubted it. Does the BP reading seem unusually high or low? Is the pulse rate, what you expected it to be? Keep in mind, age doesn't always play a huge role in hypertension. It's your general overall health, eating habits, smoking, drinking, etc. In other words, you overall life style, as well as your family's medical history.

These wrist monitors are fairly accurate if applied to the wrist correctly, you keep your wrist at heart level and you don't move during the time that monitor is operating.

If you have doubts, take the monitor with you to your next doctor's appointment. They will probably check your BP with an arm cuff. After they do that, use your wrist monitor correctly and compare it to what the reading was with the doctor's reading. One or two points difference is not a big deal. More than that is.

Hope this helps.

My wrist moniter nearly sent me to the ER last night. My blood pressure began to rise every hour ten points unti it hit 200 sys and 120 dis....I have never had such a high reading.. was very...


As an EMT, I have one these BP Monitors and have found it very reliable. However, it if is not applied correctly to the wrist, you can get false readings. Also, not having your arm/wrist at heart level could throw the reading off. If this happens again, switch arms and see if the readings are the same.

I'm also curious as to what the monitor showed your heart rate was? And was it regular or irregular?

This monitor is manufactured by Homedics for Walgreen and has a good warranty. If you still have concerns about it's accuracy, return it to Walgreens or follow the instructions in the Owners Manual about returning it to Homedics for repair of replacement.

Hope this helps to calm your anxiety.

I keep getting low readings. I had my bp read by a nurse yesterday it was 191/110 and today it was 196/119. The bp monitor model BA-616W 138/82. Please advise me?


you should already be dead if your bp is 196/119.normal runs 120/80.hypertension starts at 140/90. wrist bp units are often incorrect. dump nurse and cuff. go see your doc or use the free units at kroger

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.

Readings vary widely withing 5 mins. when repeated


You should not recheck BP until at least 15 minutes after the first check because it will always get higher on reading even with a manual BP machine. As a retired nurse I have both an automatic HoMedics which I I lost the manual for and a old type arm BP cuff. My automatic is pretty close to the other cuff in readings so I know it is close. Try waiting for a while before you recheck and not talk or move around when you take it.
