Under Pressure

Went to the doctor's office for what they call a blood pressure clinic. It's simply going to the office, checking in, waiting for 10 minutes, having BP checked, wait another 10 minutes and have it checked again. First check was done with a large cuff on the machine in the hall, and the reading was quite high, similar to what I got at home. Second check was with Andre The Giant's cuff on a machine in the nurses' office, which showed an unbelievably low/good reading, so I had her try again. It was even lower.

So the question is: which machine/cuff to trust?
