Is there someway to calibrate to verify that the results are accurate ?

My blood pressure is high when the Dr. checks it but not on my home machine are these machines reliable ? Is there someway to calibrate to verify that the results are accurate? Yes I think it might be White Coat Syndrome.

You might have what is known as white coat syndrome. Your home equipment should be accurate. If you have some one with a manual cuff, you should have them check it with that and see how far off it is from your other one. It will probably be slightly different but you should still be able to tell if your machine is way off kilter. Good luck.
