MEASUREMENT PROCEDURE

Notes:
• Blood pressure changes with every heartbeat and is in constant
fluctuation throughout the day.
• Blood pressure measurement can be affected by the position of
the user, his or her physiologic condition and other factors.
Before Measurement:
To help ensure an accurate reading, follow these instructions before
taking a measurement:
• Wait 1 hour after exercising, bathing, eating, drinking beverages
with alcohol or caffeine, or smoking to measure blood pressure.
• Sit quietly and rest for 15 minutes.
• Stress raises blood pressure. Avoid taking measurements during
stressful times.
• Take your reading in a comfortable environment as
measurements can be affected by hot or cold temperatures.
Take your blood pressure at normal body temperature.
During Measurement:
• Do not talk or move your arm or hand muscles.
• Do not cross your legs. Sit with feet flat on the floor.
• Do not touch cuff or monitor during measurement.
