SOURCE: Blood pressure reading 150/76. Manual Blood pressure 130/72

A monitor using Hg is only a valid monitor reading. Most electronic devices produce approximate results and are mostly good for taking several readings daily and obtaining a mean daily BP. Device calibration appears to be not accessible to the the user.Also, depending on age & condition of your dad, sequential reading must take place after elapse of enough time for circulation to be at steady state in the arm again, or if you immediately after a measurement make another, even with the same monitor you will obtain a different result.

SOURCE: my electronic blood pressure/pulse monitor a few

I am no expert. I would think that if the old/original battery is no longer working, a new battery would restore the monitor to its original usefulness. I think it is important, in any event, to take the monitor with you to your doctor's office when you go to see him and to check your BP with your monitor when the doctor uses his "professional" monitor to see that yours is reading the same as the doctor's instrument.

SOURCE: Samsung Blood Pressure monitor model

Usually getting these devices to be sold in parts are next to impossible as most of these devices are personally used so in most situations they are disposed of as one. Personally when i am in need of such items i surf the web for fairly used units which often come with these components but with poorly functioning engines and order them. Best search sites for these would be google, ebay, amazon and craigslist. Happy searching.
Hope this solution has been helpful?

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.

I am 75 yrs old my blood pressure is at 111 over 72 good or bad??

The normal blood pressure range is below 120/80. Healthy blood pressure must be low than the above value which helps to lower the risk of heart attacks and strokes.

I am a 64 year old woman and my blood pressure has been high for years. My blood pressure is now 117/72. Is that now too low?

Sounds like a pretty decent blood pressure to me. Of course, see a doctor if you're concerned.

What is a normal blood pressure for a 72 year old male

talk with your doctor as blood pressure readings vary between patients, weights , age and health conditions
always have your blood pressure done by the doctor as that will give a record of any variations that could be harmful
at this point it seems slightly high but the bigger concern is the diabetes and what ever the heart condition is
again consult with your doctor and get a proper diagnosis

Blood pressure is 120/49

I am sure this is a concerning matter. every patient is different, it would be best that a qulified doctor checks the man to ensure he is ok, as well as blood pressure, blood condition and other details would need to be taken. phone a doctor, health center or hospital for best advice.
