Measuring your own blood pressure is an important way of monitoring your health. High blood pressure is a major health problem, which can be treated effectively once detected. Measuring your blood pressure between doctor visits on a regular basis in the comfort of your home, and keeping a record of the measurements, will help you to monitor any significant changes in your blood pressure. You should also keep an accurate record of your blood pressure, to help your doctor diagnose and possibly prevent any health problems in the future.

Why check the oil in your car? Why check for viruses in your computer? Your blood pressure is like an indicator of many serious issues your body might have. You need to check that dipstick regularly.. You might (as suggestion) keep a cuff at your home and check every day or two yourself if you are leary of paying for someone to check you out.. it is quite important because it serves as the dash-light for your health status just like the indicator on your dash in your car. Ignoring your car light can lead to a new car.. ignoring the one for your health can lead to you pushing up daisies...

The blood pressure measurement is maybe the single most important factor in determining whether or not you may be in danger of Congestive Heart Failure, which can be, and often is, fatal. Blood pressure medication, or even diet change, can prevent some very serious complications arising from high blood pressure.

Sometimes measuring your blood pressure is tiresome and taking blood pressure medications causes more side effects than not taking anything. However blood pressure measurement is very important because it helps prevent further heart disease. Currently, heart disease (strokes, angina - aka heart attacks, arrhythmias, heart failure) is the number one killer in the United States. Having high blood pressure is just an indicator (or "predictor of future heart problems") of your heart having to work harder than it normally has to. Blood pressure is a range of two different types of readings - systolic blood pressure and diastolic blood pressure. The systolic blood pressure reading measure when your heart is contracting and the diastolic blood pressure reading measures when your heart is relaxing. There are many indicators of blood pressure - the blood vessels' pressure, pressure around the kidneys, and pressure around the heart. In our body, these all work together for overall heart function. Thus, it is important to know your blood pressure ranges regularly (once a month if usually normal) or daily if patient is hypertensive (usually over 140/90 on several occasions).

I guess you got a faulty device. BP monitor's should be accurate as they measure our blood pressure rate. I use Omron Health monitoring systems. I suggest you to try some other pharmacy, for such products.

When the blood pressure monitor reads E- error. What is the reason? Not keeping the wrist still?


It depends on which E-error you're getting.

EE - indicates several things:
  • Cuff has been placed incorrectly. Always place cuff on wrist 1" above heal of hand.
  • Did you talk or move during measurement?
  • Shaking of the wrist with the cuff ON.
E1 - Air circuit abnormality. Measure again.

E2 - Inflation pressure exceeding 300 mmHg. Switch the unit OFF.Wait 1 minute, then measure again.

E3 - Error determining measurement data. Measure again.

Hope this helped you to determine which Error you're receiving. Please let me know.

First, I do not believe there is any accurate way to measure blood pressure without having a valve installed; not a practical alternative.
The standard method using an arm-cuff and stethoscope is highly dependent on the person doing the measurement. Once my hearing started to fail, I had to go to a digital meter and found after three of these which failed and comparing my current Samsung to three different methods; manual, an elaborate 'calibrated' digital on a stand and another 'calibrated' cuff-type during an examination by a professional, none of these agreed better than 10-15 mm and the worst was 25-30 mm apart.
Using the average of those 'profis,' my current wrist-type digital measures about 10 points low on both systolic and diastolic so I just ignore the absolute numbers and use it only to determine relative deviations. For that, mine is repeatable enough.

WHAT WOULD BE CONSIDERED LOW BLOOD PRESSURE?IS IT NORMAL FOR MY TOP NUMBER TO CHANGE FROM 104 TO 129 IN ABOUT 5 MINUTES?


There are standard methods for measuring BP. One should be seated on chair, feet on ground, leaned back, relaxed for at least 5 minutes, at least 2 hrs after a meal, .... then repeating this procedure several times daily, and averaging will provide some ave daily BP value.
Using this procedure for hourly BP measures, one can adjust times and doses of BP medicines taken daily.

Blood pressure measurements support


There are two positions for taking your blood pressure measurements: Sitting down - Place your elbow on a table. Using a flat object as support, position your wrist at heart level. Your blood pressure measurement will be too low if you hold your hand too high, or too high if you hold your hand too low. Lying down - Lie on your back. Rest your wrist on a support or cushion with the palm side facing up, position your wrist at heart level. On both of the positions you need to open and relax your hand with the palm facing up (closing your hand will cause inaccurate readings). Do not bend your wrist inward, as bending your wrist will cause inaccurate readings. If possible, empty your bladder before measuring your blood pressure, for a more accurate reading.

Pressure measurements question


Try to take your blood pressure measurements at the same time and under the same conditions every day. The ideal time to measure your blood pressure is in the morning just after waking up—before breakfast, any major activity or exercise. This will give you a base blood pressure measurement. It is best to take readings closely together if you want to check whether one reading is accurate. Rest for 30 seconds then take another reading. Blood pressure can vary even over a few minutes.

Blood pressure monitor problem


The two numbers that measure your blood pressure are written like a fraction: one number on top and one on the bottom. The top number in a blood pressure reading refers to the systolic pressure. It measures the pressure inside your blood vessels at the moment your heart beats. The bottom number represents your diastolic pressure. It measures the pressure in your blood vessels when your heart is resting between heartbeats. A good blood pressure for most people will be under 120/80, as most people with blood pressure problems have high blood pressure. However, extreme low blood pressure can also be a serious health concern.
