Guidelines for Measuring Blood Pressure
- Take your blood pressure three times each time you measure. Wait at least a minute between readings. Use properly calibrated and validated equipment. Check cuff size and fit.
- Twice a day: morning and late afternoon. Try to take it at the same time each day. Don’t smoke, exercise, or drink caffeinated or alcoholic beverages within 30 minutes of measurement.
- Sit comfortably with both feet on the floor and sit for 5 minutes before taking your blood pressure. Rest your arm on a table so blood pressure cuff is at the same level as your heart. Don’t talk.
