WHICH ARM SHOULD YOU TAKE YOUR BLOOD PRESSURE FROM:
Measure your blood pressure in both arms when you first start. They will give slightly different readings. From then on, use the arm that gave you the higher reading each time.
Always use the same arm. If possible, use the arm that your doctor or nurse uses when they measure your blood pressure.
HOW TO TAKE YOUR BLOOD PRESSURE:
Step 1: Wait 30 Minutes - Avoid measuring blood pressure within 30 minutes of eating, smoking, drinking caffeine, or exercising.
Step 2: Relax for 5 Minutes - Sit at a table, with back supported, arms on the table, and feet flat on the floor. Do not cross legs or use the toilet before measuring.
Step 3: Position the Cuff - Place the cuff 2 fingers above your elbow, snug enough for 2 fingertips to fit.
Step 4: Align the Cuff - Follow instructions to align the cuff properly, enabling accurate readings.
Step 5: Stay Still - Avoid moving, chewing, talking, or laughing while the machine is measuring.
Step 6: Take Two Readings - Wait a minute between readings. If the first reading is significantly higher, disregard it and take an extra reading.
Step 7: Monitor Your Blood Pressure And Lifestyle - probably the most important part of this video because I see so many patients who either don't know what their blood pressure readings mean or don't know how to analyze and review them.
