Tips for Using an At-Home Blood Pressure Monitor
You want your reading to be accurate. The American Heart Association suggests several tips to help you take a blood pressure reading using your at-home monitor.
Before Measuring Your Blood Pressure
Don't smoke or drink caffeinated beverages before taking a reading.
Wait at least thirty minutes after exercising before taking a reading.
Sit Correctly When You Measure Your Blood Pressure
Maintain an erect but relaxed posture, with your feet on the floor.
Do not cross your legs.
Support your arms on a flat surface.
Position the cuff correctly.
Take Multiple Measurements
Take at least three readings. Wait one minute between each reading.
Use the average of three readings to get a clearer picture of your blood pressure measurements.
Record (or have your device record) your measurements, and bring them to the doctor as needed.
Remember, it's possible to see difference between readings on your right and left arms. Differences of 10mmHg or less are normal.
If you get a high blood pressure reading, take a few more readings to make sure it's right. If your readings are still high, discuss the results with your doctor.
If your reading is greater than 180/110, test it again. If it is still that high, you should seek immediate medical attention.
