  Take the machine with you. They can be in error on both readings
independently, as the method of sensing is different. My Korean wonder
reads systolic pretty right and is 5 low on diasystolic, but every
now and again it goes mad and I have to take the batteries out to
reset it. I plot the readings on computer using M$ GRAPH, and you can
see how the doctor's readings compare.
