That's not limited to the home units. Same thing happened to me in
the dr's office with their high dollar automated machine. They had to
take it manually to get a reading. And mine is not a-fib, it's PVC's
- same symptoms but from the other side of the heart.
In this case PVC is Premature Ventricular Contraction, not Poly Vinyl
Chloride. (Thought I'd mention that to keep it from being totally off
subject for this newsgroup.) :-)
Ouch. I know when I was in A-Fib I wasn't feeling like doing much (which
worked out well because climbing ladders[*] while on Warfarin isn't
[*] I'd just "retired" and was painting the inside of my house and finishing
up all of the "projects", getting ready get out of New England. ;-)
When my wife was in the hosp last week to get a hip replacement, the
automatic BP machines would not work on her at all. They tried about 4 of
them before they decided to get a manual cuff. Then they could not even find
one. The nurse had to go to another floor to get one. Pretty sad that we
depend so much on computer stuff. Good thing it wasn't an emergency as it
too about 45 minutes to get her BP.
