So far I have seen about 5 readings, they are only shown briefly, and the best (lowest) was 254/142 now I have no idea what that means so I consulted Dr Google! Oh I see it now Dr Google is no longer my friend, oh how he has turned with his graphs and statistics, none of which I appear on! Apparently they are not good numbers, well between friends they are actually quite bad.
Well I’ve considered the prospect of twice an hour ‘obs’ and how that fits my sleep pattern and have concluded a bottle of wine is well deserved. Investigation of the unit, its an engineer’s trait, reveals that it was due calibration in May 2012 so I’m thinking its out of date and the readings are not accurate but I think my test was flawed….. I wrapped it round the wine bottle for one test and the result was several error codes and no reading, its ok I won’t keep doing it and one miss read is to be expected!
My guess is it will, somehow, average ok and I won’t have the hassle of binning another set of drugs, high blood pressure indeed.
