Sphygmomanometer calibration

How or where can I get this done? I looked online. Looks more complicated than I want to deal with but can't find where to send it in.

Usually the manufacturer will do this, for a price.

And that had me wondering if it's worth it since it's a fairly inexpensive cuff and can also be replaced inexpensively. Also, I looked at the manufacturer's website and couldn't find anything.

fx, griprepair will fix it for more $ than it's worth, but thanks for the suggestion!

It's not as complicated as you may think. Give it a try.

Ok so I took the glass off, rotated the needle until it wa where it was supposed to be, then put the glass back on. Compared to one I know to be calibrated, I think I fixed it, but I'll have to keep tabs on it over time to be sure.

Usually when that kind of thing happens I just take the cuff apart and throw it in a spare parts bin. Sometimes they can be fixed in house and sometimes they can't. Never know when you need a new bladder or sleeve on another blood pressure cuff.

Bonus points for calling it Sphygmomanometer.

I'm still just a lowly student, so I still have to use the fancy terms!

The only ones I have ever known of being calibrated are the automated ones on our cardiac monitors. The handheld ones, usually not worth it. This is after 31 years in pre-hospital ems of some sort.
