Intro before questions
Before you submit your blood pressure reading, here are some tips to get the most accurate result:
Before you take your blood pressure reading:
Sit down comfortably for 5 minutes.
Wear loose-fitting clothing.
Make sure your arm is around the same level as your heart.
Make sure your arm is relaxed.
When taking your blood pressure:
Put the cuff on following the instructions which came with your blood pressure monitor.
Keep still and silent.
Take at least three readings, each two minutes apart.
Your first reading may be much higher than the next readings. If this is the case, keep taking readings until they level out and stop falling. Use this as your reading.
Please seek urgent medical attention if you develop any of the following:
Blood pressure is 170/115 or above (despite repeating it at least 2 times)
Changes in vision
Here is a video from the British Heart Foundation on how to take your reading.
