Blood pressure machines ?

I have always heard that the Omron was one of the better machines to measure BP.  I bought the Omron and I recently bought a Walgreens brand bp machine for backup.   There was a 60 point higher reading on the top number on the Walgreens unit compared to the Omron.  Anyone else have this problem with various bp machines?

    Yes ! More often than not, rather than the actual instrument  its how tight the cuff fits that matters. Try normalizing that and if possible use the same cuff and see if the readngs come out close.
