How to get really precise measurements

Take your BP at the right moment

At home, BP 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 BP:
– 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 BP Monitor’s ON/OFF button as soon as you’re ready, and don’t forget to hold still during the measurement.

Use the Automatic mode

In Auto mode, your Blood Pressure Monitor will take 3 consecutive measurements and only display the mean value in your timeline.
