An error message (EE) can appear for various reasons:
• Incorrect cuff placement
Refer to your Instruction Manual for proper cuff positioning.
• Movement or talking during measurement
During a measurement you should be seated quietly and comfortably, and not speak. Refer to your Quick Reference Guide for steps to follow for accurate measurements.
• Over or under inflation of cuff
The cuff should be inflated to approximately 30 to 40 mmHg above your average systolic pressure. For example, if your blood pressure is normally 120/80, you should inflate the cuff to approximately 150 to 160 mmHg.
• Not waiting long enough between subsequent measurements
If you need to retake a reading, wait at least 5 minutes to allow your circulation to return to normal.
