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.

    Contact the HoMedic's Consumer Relations Dept @ 800-466-3342 Mon - Fri, 8:30am - 5:00pm ET, they can help you.

    Keep in mind, that improper placement of the wrist cuff can cause higher or lower readings, than what they truly are. Also, not keeping your arm at heart level can cause an inaccurate reading.

    Generally, the recalibration has to be done by the manufacturer, as the calibration has to be certified. Most manufacturers charge little or nothing for this service. Contact the number in your Owner's Manual concerning how they want you to send it to them.

    Hope this helped and thanks for choosing FixYa.

    My blood Pressure reading on right arm is normal but reading on left arm is very low what is the cause of this and what treatment would you suggest

    i don't know. if you feel your readings are true, visit your doctor or hospital promptly. don't delay.
    i suspect you may not be having a proper compression fitting on the arm with the lower reading.
    some **** stores here have a ' no charge ' machine at a bench, that lets you test your blood pressure. you might like to try that on both arms and record the numbers. many electronics retailers sell a wrist band [ about $20 ] that reads pressure and pulse.

    Normal blood pressure for 85 year old female.

    Hey Bernard..
    Read ALL these articles...
    New Guidelines Treat High Blood Pressure in Over 80s

    Blood pressure goals may need to change with age Harvard Health Blog

    after you read the above:

    read this;..

    Nevertheless, the panel makes these general recommendations for people over age 80:
    • A target systolic blood pressure (the first or top number in a two-number blood-pressure reading) should be 140 to 145 if the patient tolerates the side effects of treatment.
    • Patients should not have a systolic blood pressure below 130 or a diastolic blood pressure (the second or bottom number) below 65.
    • For very elderly patients whose high blood pressure doesn't come down with initial treatment, the combination of a type of blood pressure **** known as a RAAS blocker, a calcium antagonist, and a water pill is often effective.
    • Very elderly patients may benefit from lifestyle changes that lower blood pressure:losing weight, reducing salt in the diet, drinking less alcohol, and taking up the DASH diet.

    My blood pressure is 142 over 80 I'm 71 year old female is that normal my doctor didn't seem concerned

    That is ok, but high normal. And age has no bearing on blood pressure, what is high for 12 year old is high for an 80 year old. Are you carrying extra pounds? If so loose them and lower the risk of a heart attack by lowering the blood pressure reading. You can read more at

    My Blood pressure is 116 over 69 I am 61 years old should I be concerned

    I am 71 with close to the same readings but I have a record of pressure readings at the doctors so any variations up or down can be read by the doctor which is what you should be doing as a random reading on a home unit is really telling you nothing
    hydration, anemia, stress and lots of other variables can affect blood pressure readings so see your doctor on a regular basis --monthly or 3 monthly to get a history for a better understanding of the readings

    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.

    My blood pressure is 110/95 and my heart rate is 124/bpm. I am pregnant what does that mean?

    110/95 Blood Pressure
    Is 110/95 Good Blood Pressure or High Blood Pressure?

    There are two parts or two separate numbers referred to as blood pressure: Systolic/Diastolic. If the blood pressure is 110/95 (110 over 95), it means that the systolic pressure is 110 and the diastolic pressure is 95.

    110/95 blood pressure can also be read as 110/95 mm Hg, or 110/95 millimeters of mercury. The 110 mm Hg Systolic refers to the pressure in the arteries when the heart beats, and the 95 mm Hg Diastolic is the pressure in the arteries between heartbeats.

    When determining if 110/95 is a good blood pressure, we looked at the American Heart Association's blood pressure chart.

    Blood Pressure Systolic Diastolic Normal Less than 120 Less than 80 Prehypertension 120 - 139 80 - 89 High Blood Pressure
    (Hypertension) Stage 1 140 - 159 90 - 99 High Blood Pressure
    (Hypertension) Stage 2 160 or higher 100 or higher Hypertensive Crisis
    (Emergency care needed) Higher than 180 Higher than 110
    For 110/95 to be good, both numbers must fit into the "normal" category above. Otherwise, it will fall into other categories of High Blood Pressure.

    Systolic reading of 110 is in the Normal range.
    Diastolic reading of 95 is in High Blood Pressure (Hypertension) Stage 1 range.
    Therefore, 110/95 is High Blood Pressure (Hypertension Stage 1).
