Home Blood Pressure Monitoring Basics
Prepare for a Reading: Avoid eating, drinking alcohol or caffeinated beverages, smoking, exercising or bathing for 30 minutes prior to taking a measurement. It is also best to rest for 15 minutes before starting the measurement. Avoid taking a measurement during stressful times. Take the measurement in a quiet place.
Best Time for a Reading: Try to take readings at the same general times each day (for example, once in the morning and once at night) for comparison purposes.
Take Your Position: Sit in a chair with your feet flat on the floor. Rest your arm on a table with your palm facing upward. The cuff should be level with your heart. Do not talk or move during the measurement.
Taking a Reading: Take two or three readings, a minute or so apart. Work out the average.
Store and Review: Store and review your readings. Many Omron blood pressure monitors can store results for later review at the push of a button, so you can share the results with your doctor.
