Questions about measurement results

 

My device gives readings that are too low

  • Check that you are using the correct cuff size. A cuff that is too big or wide leads to false-low readings.
  • Keep your wrist or upper arm at heart level. If the site where the measurement is taken is too high, this leads to false-low readings.
  • If you are still concerned, have your measurement device checked where you obtained it.
