Re: Relion error

I got a new Relion monitor a month or two ago. I'd had a manual monitor before, but it was at least five years old. Since the cuff had gone bad and would have had to be replaced anyway, I thought it was a good time to get an automatic one, since I'd been reading on these boards that the automatic were more accurate. Well, I'm one very disappointed customer! I don't get the EE often for normal readings. On those occasions I have, I just try it again and it is usually fine. But I have wanted to test my blood pressure/heart rate immediately after exercise, and it just won't work then. I have had the thing go up higher, over 200, after it starts to measure, then decides it didn't go far enough, but it never would do that when I tried it after exercise. I just got the EE instead.
