A properly fitting cuff, correctly positioned on the arm, is essential to ensure accurate blood pressure measurements
Frequently asked questions:
Q: How do you know if your blood pressure monitor is accurate?
A: The technology used in your new blood pressure monitor meets the highest clinical standards. When used correctly, this monitor will provide readings comparable to those taken in your doctor’s office. Always wait at least 5 minutes between measurements.
Note: Due to normal physiologic changes and many external factors influencing blood pressure, it is unusual to obtain identical measurements even when taken a few minutes apart.
Q: Why might your blood pressure results be different than at your doctor’s office?
A: Many people experience what is called “White Coat Hypertension” when having blood pressure measured in a doctor’s office or clinic. The blood pressure readings are somewhat higher than the readings you obtain when you measure it yourself in a relaxed atmosphere at home.
People who have raised blood pressure under the stress of everyday conditions can have normal readings under quiet conditions at the doctors. Then, we speak of “doctor’s surgery normotension”. Discuss the possibility of White Coat Hypertension with your doctor.
Q: Your blood pressure varies throughout the day. How do you know which is your true blood pressure?
A: The average of several results obtained over several days, under comparable conditions represents your individual blood pressure.
In order to ensure comparable values, always measure your blood pressure at the same time of the day.
Risk Category Indicator:
The Risk Category Indicator uses a bar on the display to show your blood pressure as Optimal, Normal, High normal, Setting 1 (mild hypertension), Setting 2 (moderate hypertension) or Setting 3 (severe hypertension).
