The Doctor is Wrong!! How to take your Blood Pressure. Blood pressure measurement is not adequately performed at the doctors office. You are taken in by the nurse to a room. You are being asked questions and your blood pressure is being taken by the one size fits all BP cuff all at the same time. And that my friends is your blood pressure that the doctor would use to decide about your future health. But this is so far from ideal. The proper standard method is that the patient is to be seated in chair for 5 min with legs supported and arms supported, with short sleeves which are lose and not tight. Not having smoked recently and no Talking! Then Have to ensure that the cuff fits correctly not too lose and not too tight; 2 readings are taken i2 min apart and then you take an average and that should be your blood pressure.

https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2004/01/040108075421.htm The above link explains the testing done by the University Of San Diego School Of Medicine to determine that placing the arm in the perpendicular position from the body is the proper position for taking a blood pressure reading. The proper method for taking a blood pressure reading is to sit in a comfortable chair with your back resting against the back of the chair. Place both feet on the floor. Do not cross your legs. Relax for about 3 to 5 minutes before taking the blood pressure reading. Place the cuff about 1/2 inch above the bend in the elbow which is called the antecubital space. The tubing should be at the lower end of the cuff and it should be in direct alignment with the bend in the elbow. Make sure the cuff size is the proper size for the arm of the person. There are small, medium, and large cuff sizes. Most doctors want to see your blood pressure for systolic at 120 or below. They consider anything between 120 and 140 to be pre-hytension. Anything over 140 is considered hypertension or high blood pressure. The diastolic pressure or the bottom number is considered to be within normal limits if it is below 80. Anywhere around 50 to 80. If the bottom number or the diastolic pressure is 90 or above, then that would be considered hypertensive. Placing the arm in the perpendicular position to your torso gives you a more accurate reading according to the research by the Medical School at San Diego State University. From this research one should not place their arm in a parallel position, or dangle their arm downwards. The arm should also be placed on a table at the height or the same level as the heart.

An introductory video explaining how to manually measure blood pressure. In this video, we are sharing with you the auscultatory method of determining systolic and diastolic arterial pressures. The cuff is placed above the antecubital artery and the cuff is above the upper arm. The stethoscope is placed near the antecubital artery and no sound will be hear when there is enough pressure to close off the artery. When the pressure is slowly released, the sound of blood jetting through the vessel by the vibrations of the wall is called the Korotkoff sounds. The first sound is also the systolic pressure. The diastolic pressure is when a muffled quality occurs. Please note that the sound is often overestimated because sound can still be heard even after deflation of the cuff. This method is not 100% accurate but will give values within the 10% range. This information was written in the Textbook of Medical Physiology by Guyton and Hall. **Disclaimer: we are not medical professionals.

Normal blood pressure is important for proper blood flow to the body’s organs and tissues. The force of the blood on the walls of the arteries is called blood pressure. Blood pressure is measured both as the heart contracts, which is called systole, and as it relaxes, which is called diastole. Normal blood pressure is considered to be a systolic blood pressure of 115 millimeters of mercury a diastolic pressure of 70 millimeters of mercury (stated as "115 over 70"). If an individual were to have a consistent blood pressure reading of 140 over 90, he would be evaluated for having high blood pressure. If left untreated, high blood pressure can damage important organs, such as the brain and kidneys, as well as lead to a stroke. High blood pressure is a common disease in which blood flows through blood vessels (arteries) at higher than normal pressures. Measuring Blood Pressure Blood pressure is the force of blood pushing against the walls of the arteries as the heart pumps blood. High blood pressure, sometimes called hypertension, happens when this force is too high. Health care workers check blood pressure readings the same way for children, teens, and adults. They use a gauge, stethoscope or electronic sensor, and a blood pressure cuff. With this equipment, they measure: Systolic Pressure: blood pressure when the heart beats while pumping blood Diastolic Pressure: blood pressure when the heart is at rest between beats Health care workers write blood pressure numbers with the systolic number above the diastolic number. For example: 118/76 mmHg People read "118 over 76" millimeters of mercury. Normal Blood Pressure: Normal blood pressure for adults is defined as a systolic pressure below 120 mmHg and a diastolic pressure below 80 mmHg. It is normal for blood pressures to change when you sleep, wake up, or are excited or nervous. When you are active, it is normal for your blood pressure to increase. However, once the activity stops, your blood pressure returns to your normal baseline range. Blood pressure normally rises with age and body size. Newborn babies often have very low blood pressure numbers that are considered normal for babies, while older teens have numbers similar to adults. Abnormal Blood Pressure Abnormal increases in blood pressure are defined as having blood pressures higher than 120/80 mmHg. The following table outlines and defines high blood pressure severity levels. The ranges in the table are blood pressure guides for adults who do not have any short-term serious illnesses. People with diabetes or chronic kidney disease should keep their blood pressure below 130/80 mmHg. Although blood pressure increases seen in prehypertension are less than those used to diagnose high blood pressure, prehypertension can progress to high blood pressure and should be taken seriously. Over time, consistently high blood pressure weakens and damages your blood vessels, which can lead to complications. Types of High Blood Pressure There are two main types of high blood pressure: primary and secondary high blood pressure. Primary High Blood Pressure Primary, or essential, high blood pressure is the most common type of high blood pressure. This type of high blood pressure tends to develop over years as a person ages. Secondary High Blood Pressure Secondary high blood pressure is caused by another medical condition or use of certain medicines. This type usually resolves after the cause is treated or removed. Blood pressure (BP) is the pressure exerted by circulating blood upon the walls of blood vessels. When used without further specification, "blood pressure" usually refers to the arterial pressure in the systemic circulation. It is usually measured at a person's upper arm. Blood pressure is usually expressed in terms of the systolic (maximum) pressure over diastolic (minimum) pressure and is measured in millimeters of mercury (mm Hg). It is one of the vital signs along with respiratory rate, heart rate, oxygen saturation, and body temperature. Normal resting blood pressure in an adult is approximately 120/80 mm Hg. Blood pressure varies depending on situation, activity, and disease states. It is regulated by the nervous and endocrine systems. Blood pressure that is low due to a disease state is called hypotension, and pressure that is consistently high is hypertension. Both have many causes which can range from mild to severe. Both may be of sudden onset or of long duration. Long term hypertension is a risk factor for many diseases, including kidney failure, heart disease, and stroke. Long term hypertension is more common than long term hypotension in Western countries. Long term hypertension often goes undetected because of infrequent monitoring and the absence of symptoms. Physiology: During each heartbeat, blood pressure varies between a maximum (systolic) and a minimum (diastolic) pressure. Q. What blood pressure should I have? What is normal blood pressure?

Will You Get An Inaccurate Reading If A Blood Pressure Cuff Is Too Tight? There is one organ which causes high blood pressure (and it's not what you think!) and there are specific exercises you can use to target and fix your blood pressure easily. No diet, lifestyle changes or medication required: http://hibloodpressure.stream/ Answers from: Faith Wanjiku 1. YOURE USING THE WRONG-SIZED CUFFThe most common error when using indirect blood pressure measuring equipment is using an incorrectly sized cuff. A BP cuff that is too large will give falsely low readings, while an overly small cuff will provide readings that are falsely high. The American Heart Association publishes guidelines for BP measurements . recommending that the bladder length and width (the inflatable portion of the cuff) should be 80 percent and 40 percent respectively, of arm circumference. Most practitioners find measuring bladder and arm circumference to be overly time consuming, so they dont do it. The most practical way to quickly and properly size a BP cuff is to pick a cuff that covers two-thirds of the distance between your patients elbow and shoulder. Carrying at least three cuff sizes (large adult, regular adult, and pediatric) will fit the majority of the adult population. Multiple smaller sizes are needed if you frequently treat pediatric patients. Korotkoff sounds are the noises heard through a stethoscope during cuff deflation. They occur in 5 phases: I first detectable sounds, corresponding to appearance of a palpable pulse. II sounds become softer, longer and may occasionally transiently disappear. III change in sounds to a thumping quality (loudest)IV pitch intensity changes and sounds become muffled. V sounds disappear More: https://youtu.be/XrlKaJCll1M Subscribe to our channel!

When it comes to cuffs one size does not fit all. We at SunTech Medical continually promote the importance of proper BP measurement technique. One of the most integral parts of BP measurement is ensuring you are using the correct cuff size for your patient. This becomes even more important for ABPM studies using the Oscar 2 because the cuff is the sensor, and therefore a main component of generating BP results. Applying an unsuitable cuff to your patient can cause erroneous ABPM study results, and therefore affect a patient's hypertension diagnosis. To facilitate proper cuff sizing when using the SunTech Medical Oscar 2 ABPM System, we have created this video which will walk you through the required steps to determine the appropriate cuff size for each ABPM study you conduct.

Automatic blood pressure monitors There are many different kinds of home blood pressure monitor, but it is easiest to use a monitor that is fully automatic (digital). Choose one that measures your blood pressure at your upper arm, rather than at your wrist or finger. Upper-arm blood pressure monitors usually give the most accurate and consistent results. Make sure your monitor is accurate Make sure that the home blood pressure monitor you choose has been listed as 'clinically validated' for accuracy by the British Hypertension Society. This means that the digital monitor has gone through a series of tests to make sure it gives results that you and your doctor can trust. Make sure you have the right cuff size An upper-arm blood pressure monitor will come with a cuff that you need to wrap around your arm. If you use a cuff that is the wrong size for you, your blood pressure reading will not be correct. Measure around your upper arm at the midpoint between your shoulder and elbow, and choose your cuff size from the chart below. Upper Arm Blood Pressure Monitor cuff sizes Measurement (cm) Measurement (inches) Cuff size 18-22 cm 7.1-8.7” Small 22-32 cm 8.8-12.8” Medium 32-45 cm 12.8-18” Large Most home blood pressure monitors will come with a medium-sized cuff. You may have to order a different-sized cuff separately. Choose a digital monitor to suit your budget Blood pressure monitors can vary in price. This usually depends on the number of extra features that the digital monitor has, like a built-in memory for example. All you need to measure your blood pressure correctly is a clinically validated monitor, and a pen and paper to record your readings. Extra features can be helpful but they are not necessary. Choose a home blood pressure monitor that you can afford. Keep your home blood pressure monitor calibrated Because your blood pressure monitor works automatically, it will need to be re-calibrated at least once every two years to be sure it is giving you accurate results. To have your automatic home monitor re-calibrated, you will need to send it back to the manufacturer. There will probably be a fee for this service. Blood pressure monitor - always choose one that has been clinically validated Clinically validated home blood pressure monitors Clinical validation of blood pressure monitors in the UK is done by the British and Irish Hypertension Society Below are links to clinically validated blood pressure monitors For home use: http://bhsoc.org/files/8414/5710/6814/Home_Use.pdf For clinical use: http://bhsoc.org/files/2814/5710/6732/Clinical_Use.pdf Blood pressure monitor - buy theMicrolife blood pressure monitor online Up-to-date list of clinically validated blood pressure monitors Other clinically validated monitors Blood Pressure monitors are available direct from the respective manufacturers, large branches of Boots and Lloyds Pharmacy and from online retailers such as Amazon and John Lewis.

10 Steps to Accurate Manual Blood Pressure Measurement/How to get accurate readings 10 Steps to Accurate Manual Blood Pressure Measurement Another observation the AHA makes is that although the auscultatory method has been the standard for blood pressure measurement for over 50 years, surveys indicate that physicians rarely follow the well published guidelines for their use. This is where we feel it is important to remind all healthcare professionals of best practices related to manual blood pressure measurement, so without further ado... Step 1 - Choose the right equipment: What you will need: 1. A quality stethoscope 2. An appropriately sized blood pressure cuff 3. A blood pressure measurement instrument such as an aneroid or mercury column sphygmomanometer or an automated device with a manual inflate mode. Step 2 - Prepare the patient: Make sure the patient is relaxed by allowing 5 minutes to relax before the first reading. The patient should sit upright with their upper arm positioned so it is level with their heart and feet flat on the floor. Remove excess clothing that might interfere with the BP cuff or constrict blood flow in the arm. Be sure you and the patient refrain from talking during the reading. Step 3 - Choose the proper BP cuff size: Most measurement errors occur by not taking the time to choose the proper cuff size. Wrap the cuff around the patient's arm and use the INDEX line to determine if the patient's arm circumference falls within the RANGE area. Otherwise, choose the appropriate smaller or larger cuff. 10 Steps to Accurate Manual Blood Pressure Measurement/How to get accurate readings Step 4 - Place the BP cuff on the patient's arm: Palpate/locate the brachial artery and position the BP cuff so that the ARTERY marker points to the brachial artery. Wrap the BP cuff snugly around the arm. Step 5 - Position the stethoscope: On the same arm that you placed the BP cuff, palpate the arm at the ante cubical fossa (crease of the arm) to locate the strongest pulse sounds and place the bell of the stethoscope over the brachial artery at this location. Step 6 - Inflate the BP cuff: Begin pumping the cuff bulb as you listen to the pulse sounds. When the BP cuff has inflated enough to stop blood flow you should hear no sounds through the stethoscope. 10 Steps to Accurate Manual Blood Pressure Measurement/How to get accurate readings Step 7 - Slowly Deflate the BP cuff . The Doctor recommends that the pressure should fall at 2 - 3 mmHg per second, anything faster may likely result in an inaccurate measurement. . Step 8 - Listen for the Systolic Reading: The first occurrence of rhythmic sounds heard as blood begins to flow through the artery is the patient's systolic pressure. This may resemble a tapping noise at first. 10 Steps to Accurate Manual Blood Pressure Measurement/How to get accurate readings Step 9 - Listen for the Diastolic Reading: Continue to listen as the BP cuff pressure drops and the sounds fade. Note the gauge reading when the rhythmic sounds stop. This will be the diastolic reading. Step 10 - Double Check for Accuracy: The AHA recommends taking a reading with both arms and averaging the readings. To check the pressure again for accuracy wait about five minutes between readings. Typically, blood pressure is higher in the mornings and lower in the evenings. If the blood pressure reading is a concern or masked or white coat hypertension is suspected, a 24 hour blood pressure study may be required to assess the patient's overall blood pressure profile. 10 Steps to Accurate Manual Blood Pressure Measurement/How to get accurate readings 10 Steps to Accurate Manual Blood Pressure Measurement/How to get accurate readings 10 Steps to Accurate Manual Blood Pressure Measurement/How to get accurate readings 10 Steps to Accurate Manual Blood Pressure Measurement/How to get accurate readings 10 Steps to Accurate Manual Blood Pressure Measurement/How to get accurate readings https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W8nTT0UuxIk https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bOCFT1qRuCE https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bOCFT1qRuCE https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=31ZYrzWfsxA https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WJB4iNdWr3Y www.youtube.com https://www.suntechmed.com/blog/entry/4-bp-measurement/42-10-steps-to-accurate-manual-blood-pressure-measurement DISCLAIMER: This video is for educational and informational purposes only.

Visit http://bloodpressureinformation.info for more information on choosinf a Blood Pressure Monitor. There are many varieties and types of home blood pressure monitors (HBPM). Purchasing a blood pressure monitor is a great way to keep track of your blood pressure; however, choosing one can be confusing. The choice is personal and usually based on::Accuracy, Ease of use, Cost, Type of cuff, Memory and printing options. It is important to choose one you are comfortable with. This article will give you some tips and information to choose best BP monitor for you. Home blood pressure monitors are basically of 3 types, Mercury column, aneroid and Digital Blood pressure monitors. Mercury HBPMs: Seen in Doctor's Office. They are the most accurate, yet most difficult to use. They use a stethoscope to detect the sounds in the arteries. Aneroid HPBMs- are the second most reliable. Aneroid monitors range in price from about $20 to $30. These also require using a stethoscope -- which is included in this particular model. They are lightweight, portable, and affordable. Experts from the American Society of Hypertension recommend this type and say that these are the most inexpensive monitors and little can go wrong with them. Aneroid models can be difficult to use, and may require training by a doctor or health worker. Moreover, using these requires good hearing and eyesight and may not be the best choice for elderly or disabled persons. For these reasons, aneroid HBPMs are generally less popular than digital monitors. Digital HBPMs: These machines are less accurate, yet they are the easiest to use. They are a good option for people who are hard of hearing or have poor eyesight. If you use it properly, it is best choice for anyone. Also it is important to consider cuff while purchasing HBPMs. Cuffs are of three types. Arm, wrist and finger cuffs. Arm cuffs are the most accurate. Finger and wrist cuffs are only recommended for those who cannot wear them on the arm. An improperly fitted arm cuff will give a false reading. This is the most frequent reason for incorrect blood pressure readings. To determine your cuff size, measure around the midpoint of your upper arm. If it is Less than 31 cm (12.2 in), buy a regular-size cuff Between 31 and 40 cm (15.7 in), buy a large-size cuff Cuffs must be inflated to measure blood pressure- they include those that must be inflated manually, semi-automatic devices, or auto inflate devices. Following are some tips when you purchase blood pressure monitor. Display Size - Is a standard or an oversized LCD read-out needed. Try to take that with normal size. Power Supply - Battery powered or AC adapter. If you travel the battery powered unit is your best choice. Memory Features - Some models remember the last reading or multiple readings. There are also models that have a PC link. Better to choose that has a memory of atleast one month BP monitoring. Printing options- Some monitors also have printing options to keep your record safe Cuff Sizes - Large and small arm cuffs are available for some units. The size of the cuff on a blood pressure monitor may be the most important to get an accurate reading. So always use cuff which is not too small and not too large. Cost - Cost may be the most important factor. Remember to do as much research as possible. The more expensive models may not always be as good as the cheaper ones Accuracy - Readings on some wrist and finger units may not be as accurate as an arm unit depending on the individual. Ease of Use - Depends on personal preference. People with certain disabilities may find one unit easier to use than another. Length of Warranty - Warranties vary from one to three years. Check your unit regularly to make sure everything runs smoothly and accurately.

The nurse should ensure an accurate BP measurement is taken to initiate and maintain the appropriate plan of care for every client. To obtain an accurate blood pressure measurement, the nurse needs to observe which of the following client variables? Select all that apply: A. Avoiding tobacco at least 30 minutes prior to measurement B. Avoiding caffeine at least 1 hour before measurement D. Being sure to use the appropriate BP cuff size and not applying it over clothing E. Requests that the client is sitting comfortably F. The blood pressure cuff should be firmly secured but not too tight or too loose prior to cuff inflation Answer: A, D, E, F are all correct variables to observe in order to obtain an accurate blood pressure. Rationale: Caffeine and alcoholic beverages should be avoided at least 30 minutes prior to the measurement and the BP cuff should be the right size for the clients arm, not applied too tightly or too loose. Accurate BP measurement is essential to determining cardiovascular risk and when providing recommendations for treatment.

I just got this great digital wrist blood pressure monitor from Slight Touch. I have had high blood pressure for a couple of years now so being able to monitor at home is really important to me. If I feel like it is high I want a quick easy way that I can measure it. However, I'm not a doctor or nurse and I have no idea how to use a blood pressure cuff. That's where this blood pressure monitor from Slight Touch comes in handy. Just slide the cuff on your wrist. Press the power button and it starts to work instantly. It tells you your blood pressure and your pulse. I also love that it gives you the option to store your readings so you can monitor your readings over a period of time. It works really well and is really accurate too. I received this item complimentary or at a reduced price for my honest review. However, I only recommend products I truly love and use to my readers. #AmazonReview
