Calibration of digital Blood Pressure machines

I have experienced that most digital BP machines have issues and are inaccurate most times.

Who sets the rules and monitoring that such devices selling in the market are of basic standards and not a piece of junk.

Your references for digital bp machines that work will be helpful more

I had intimated this forum a peculiar observation. First three readings of blood pressure are quite inconsistent, but fourth reading and subsequent readings are quite consistent. However, I could not satisfy myself with any reasoning. I had done several trials : with new batteries, cleaning the air passages, allowing the machine to 'warm-up' for a few minutes, etc. more  
Unfortunately, there is no testing and certification centre for Indian made medical devices yet. The government has been harping on it since 5 years but I do not know the status. Even the locally made ECG machines etc do not have any 3rd party regulatory testing and certification. Hence, most doctors rely on international products which are tested & certified in their respective countries. For example, a locally made ECG machine might cost Rs.34,000/- but without testing and certification whereas a PHILLIPS or GE machine will cost above Rs. 65,000/-. All these things factor into the charges recovered from patients. more  
Yes, it is and as such, we have discarded our machine a long back. The traditional machines are the best but its the age of electronics and we easily succumb to the attraction of such modern things of present age. more  
Omron is one reputed company selling digital BP machines in India. you may try. i and my family use it and have found it to be satisfactory. Was recommended by one of the Chemists wholesaler to me. I believe in brands that provide quality service worldwide. You may google some of such products. Regulation or licensing doesn't help much in India. It only increases bribes, regulatory expenses for companies who in turn pass on to consumers. The medical industry itself is full of corruption and license raj. Use google to read about some digital machines to find out more and make your decision. But beware of free machines being distributed along with Wholesale body test schemes. I had two blood sugar level testing machines. I doubted them and spoke to a lab assistant friend who told me they were deliberately designed to give higher readings to keep you frightened about your health even when you are fit so that you keep spending on medical test and sugar control drugs. more
