Why Won't My Blood Pressure Read With An Electronic Blood Pressure Monitor?

I have had my pressure taken at the doctor's office and at home with an electronic monitor and it won't register. The cuff inflates, deflates, then inflates so many times I have to stop.

Answer

Hi Nobloodpressure,

Mostlikely, you're blood pressure monitor is not working correctly. I recommend taking it with you to the doctor's office so they can watch how you're using it and direct you if any changes are needed or confirm that you have a faulty machine.

All the best,
