    Is my blood pressure high or is it just the machine?

    Hey bros...I have searched thruout and found that a reading of 141/65 is normal on AS. But maybe the machine isnt that accurate. The cuff is made for people with 6-13" arms. My arms are bigger,thank goodness, so can this create an inaccurate reading? I would think so, but by how much?

    yeah bigger arms definetly get a higher reading, go to the doc and ill bet you read lower plus my reading change just by the postion I put my arm into the cuff. If I ram my forearm in higher up my arm I get a higher reading

    just get a bigger cuff, the smaller the cuff on a bigger arm will give a higher reading, at least that's what my doc said
