Are Blood Pressure Monitors Accurate?
Whether you’re treating hypertension, monitoring your pregnancy, tracking your athletic pursuits or simply watching your health more closely, you can safely use a blood pressure monitor to track your blood pressure at home. Tracking your blood pressure is easier and more convenient than ever with the A&D Medical UltraCONNECT Wireless Wrist Blood Pressure Monitor.
If used as directed, readings from clinically validated wrist cuffs are just as accurate as at-home readings from upper-arm cuffs.
How Do You Use a Blood Pressure Monitor?
The first and most important tool for an accurate at-home blood pressure reading is proper technique. How you monitor your blood pressure is just as important as the tools you use. Stick to these three simple rules and you’ll be an at-home blood pressure pro in no time:
- Be consistent: That means same time of day and, if possible, same location. If not, make sure you’re seated in a similar chair with your arm rested at the same height.
- Stay still: For 30 minutes prior be sure to avoid exercise, caffeine and smoking.
- Cross your heart: Keep the cuff directly across from your heart. With a wrist monitor, that means resting your elbow on a table and holding your wrist out and up at the same level as your heart for an accurate reading.
As with any medical decisions, you should discuss your blood pressure monitor usage with your doctor. They can help make sure that your at-home readings are as accurate as possible. A direct comparison between your monitor and the in-office equipment can help identify any margins of error and improve your at-home blood pressure readings.
