An upper arm monitor will come with a cuff that you need to wrap around your arm. If you use a cuff that is the wrong size for you, your reading will not be correct. Measure around your upper arm at the midpoint between your shoulder and elbow. Most monitors will come with a medium sized cuff. You may have to order a different sized cuff separately.

Mod hem 704c reads high compared to doctors blood pressure readings


There are many things that can affect the readings. Cuff size is one of the biggest. If the cuff is on the small side it will not read as accurately as a cuff that fits properly. Keeping the cuff at heart level is important as well. Many people have to put the cuff lower on the arm if the cuff is too small and then they don't raise the cuff to heart level. This will give a higher reading. What is most important is to ensure that the readings are consistent. While they may be higher than the doctors office, as long as they are not dangerous, use them as a baseline and monitor fluctuations over time to ensure that your medications are doing their intended work.

Why does anOmron M7 Blood Pressure Monitor Cuff not fully inflate?


I have the BP760 model so I'm not entirely sure what the functionality differences would be. However from time to time I have had issues with the cuff not inflating. It is usually one of two things: the cuff is not positioned snugly enough on the arm (I have a skinny arm and sometimes need to enlist the help of a family member). The other time it has happened was when the inflation tube itself with so kinked and twisted that air could not flow through. You should also check to make sure that the inflation tube in securely connected to the unit. So make sure that the air supply from the cuff to the unit is not obstructed, and that the arm cuff is positioned properly and that you are not trying to put the cuff on over clothing. If you've checked all of this and/or you receive the error message of "Er", you should contact customer service. Hope this helps.

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.

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.
