How to get really precise measurements

Take your blood pressure at the right moment

At home, blood pressure must either be measured in the morning just before breakfast (and before ingesting any drugs), or at night just before going to bed.

Here’s what you need to do to measure your blood pressure:
– Sit comfortably
– Wait for about 5 minutes before wrapping the cuff around your arm
– Place the cuff so that the metal tube is positioned against your inner arm
– Put your arm on the table, at the level of your chest
– Press your Blood Pressure Monitor’s ON/OFF button as soon as you’re ready, and don’t forget to hold still during the measurement.

Here’s what your results will look like:
