TIPS ON TAKING BLOOD PRESSURE MEASUREMENT
1. It is necessary to know that arterial blood pressure is subjected to sharp fluctuations. The level of the arterial blood pressure depends on many factors. Generally arterial blood pressure is lower in the summer and higher in the winter. Arterial blood pressure changes with atmosphere pressure and is affected considerably by many factors, e.g. physical loads, emotional excitability, stress, meals, etc. Medicines, drinking, and smoking can affect blood pressure. When blood pressure is measured in the hospital, the value is sometimes higher than when taken at home. This is believed to be associated with anxiety experienced during the hospital/clinic visit. Blood pressure may be elevated when taken in low temperatures. If this device was stored at a low temperature, it is necessary to leave it at room temperature for at least 1 hour, otherwise the measurement can be inaccurate. Blood pressure varies by age and from person to person, and it is recommended to record blood pressure daily; then you can check with your physician to find out what normal blood pressure is for you.
2. Patients with cardiovascular diseases: Take measurement under doctors instruction.
3. Accurate measurement of blood pressure may be difficult in people with serious arteriosclerosis, weak pulse, or in patients with irregular heart rates. Please consult a qualified physician to interpret your blood pressure readings.
4. Keep quiet and relax during measurement. To obtain accurate readings, wait one hour after a meal or smoking before taking a measurement.
5. Wait at least 5 minutes before taking the next measurement. Atherosclerosis and diabetes patients require longer intervals (10-15 minutes), since vessel elasticity may have decreased in these pathologies.
CORRECT POSTURE FOR MEASUREMENT
Sit down and place your elbow on a table. Ensure the wrist is at approximately the same level as the heart, and the forearm is extended naturally, palm up. Wrap the cuff around the left wrist as shown in the illustration, and ensure the cuff is attached to the wrist securely with the display facing the user. Loosen and roll up sleeves so that the blood pressure monitor wrist cuff is in direct contact with the wrist during measurement.
