Question about Walgreens By Homedics Automatic Blood Pressure Monitor 1ea

1 Answer

Neither of the cuffs on the Homedics S18729 Ultra-Deluxe Automatic Blood Pressure Monitor work. They do not fit well around my arm and constantly slip while inflating. I don't know if it is a design flaw or operator error. I am able to use other similar machines. Are the blood pressure cuff interchangable with other machines on the market? Such as the upper arm cuff on the Panasonic Diagnostec EW3122.

Robert, I'm not sure that the cuffs would be interchangeable. But, I suspect the problem you're having with the cuff is operator error. Speaking from experience, it's somewhat difficult at best, to apply and arm cuff to yourself. It does take some practice, but if you can get the cuff snugly in place, it should inflate properly. If you want to pursue with interchanging the cuff, contact HoMedics at 800-469-3342, to see if it's possible. Perhaps, you should get a BP Monitor that has a wrist cuff. They're a lot easier to apply and use.

What does an E3 reading mean on a b.p. machine


On my Homedics BPA-110 the "E3" means there was an "error obtaining measurement data: measure again". When you measure, make sure the cuff hose is centered on your arm. I have noticed the placement of the hose cuff is quite critical. If the hose on the cuff is not centered, you will probably get some type of "Exx" error code. This has happened several times with my monitor. Hopes this helps.

When my wife takes her blood pressure she gets error 3 every time. When I do it, it works. What could we be doing wrong.


2 things could be causing the problem, when your wife is doing it.

1. Improper placement of the cuff. If should be at least 1" above the heal of the hand and the cuff snugly applied.

2. Movement when the monitor is in operation. Hold hand and arm very still.

Also, for the most accurate reading, the hand/wrist should be at heart level.

Hope this helps clear up the problem for you.

What is the data link for on the HoMedics #518729


There was supposed to be Healthvault software from Microsoft. Along with a optional USB adapter (from the micro port on the BP machine to the computer USB port) the software uploads the blood pressure data to a site where it can be shared electronically with those you choose, like several different doctors. I'm just researching this information having just bought a unit, but if you are persistant, you should be able to find the software link. Any micro USB to USB connector should work to connect to the computer. Merry Christmas and good luck! 12/25/09 by electro1

WITH AUTOMATIC CUFF BLOOD PRESSURE MONITOR GETTING ERROR


Try different locations. The sensor must be over a vain to pick up the pulse. Locate the point on the cuff where the sensor is, and place this over the elbow. That should work. Good luck.

The cuff sensor must be placed directly over the vain. This takes practice.
