    TAKING YOUR BLOOD PRESSURE
    BLOOD PRESSURE TAKING TIPS
    Relax for several moments before measurement.
    Do not smoke or ingest caffeine at least 30 minutes prior to measurement.
    Remove constricting clothing and place cuff on bare arm.
    Unless your physician recommends otherwise, use left arm to measure pressure.
    Do not talk during measurement.
    Do not cross legs and keep your feet flat on the floor.
    NOW YOU ARE READY. FOLLOW THESE SIMPLE STEPS:
    1. Sit comfortably with your left arm resting on a flat
    surface so that the center of your upper arm is at
    the same height as your heart.
    2. Lay left arm on the table with palm up. Place the
    cuff on upper arm with the tube facing downward
    and toward the inside of your arm. Fasten cuff securely
    with hook and loop fastener strap.
    3. The cuff should be snug but not too tight. You should be
    able to insert two fingers between the cuff and your arm.
    4. With your palm facing up, place the stethoscope head
    one-inch above the bend of the elbow on the inside of
    the arm. This is where the main artery is located.
    5. Insert the ear tips of the stethoscope into your ears.
    Adjust by turning ear tips to fit comfortably in your
    ears.
    6. Hold the manometer in your left hand and the inflation bulb in your right hand.
    7. Close the air release valve on the bulb by turning the valve clockwise.
    8. Inflate the cuff by repeatedly squeezing the bulb with your right hand. Listen to
    the pulse beat while inflating the cuff.
    9. Watch the gauge. When you can no longer hear the pulse beat, raise the pressure
    an additional 30 mmHg.
    NOTE: Do not inflate the cuff above 280 mmHg. You may injure yourself or
    damage the equipment. If you are uncertain about the proper cuff inflation
    level, consult your physician.
    10. After reaching your inflation level, slowly deflate the cuff by opening the air
    release valve. To open the air release valve, turn it counter-clockwise so that the
    pressure drops 2-4 mmHg per second. The needle on the manometer should drop
    an average of one to two marks every second.
    NOTE: Pressurizing the cuff shuts off all blood flow to the arm. Do not leave it
    fully inflated any longer than absolutely necessary.
    11. After opening the air release valve, listen carefully for a pulse beat. The moment
    you hear the first thumping sounds of your pulse beat, note the reading on the
    gauge. This is your systolic blood pressure measurement.
    12. When you can no longer hear any sounds, read the gauge. This is your diastolic
    blood pressure measurement.
    13. Remove cuff and make note of your blood pressure.
    NOTE: To be certain your technique was good and the readings were as
    accurate as possible, wait 10-15 minutes and repeat the procedure.
    TWO-PARTY METHOD:
    1. If you plan on taking someone else’s blood pressure, have the person whose blood
    pressure is to be taken to rest and relax at least 15 minutes beforehand.
    2. Have the person extend his or her left arm toward you, palm up. Be sure the arm
    rests at the same level as the heart.
    3. Position the cuff as indicated in the self-taking instructions.
    4. Attach the manometer to the loop on the cuff, so that it is clearly visible to you.
    5. Perform Steps 1-13 in Taking Your Blood Pressure. If possible, have your physician
    watch your technique to be sure it is correct.
    ABOUT BLOOD PRESSURE
    WHAT IS BLOOD PRESSURE?
    Blood pressure is the force exerted by blood against the walls of the arteries. Systolic
    pressure occurs when the heart contracts; diastolic pressure occurs when the heart
    expands. Blood pressure is measured in millimeters of mercury (mmHg).
    WHAT AFFECTS BLOOD PRESSURE?
    Blood pressure is affected by many factors: age, weight, time of day, activity level,
    climate, altitude and season. Certain activities can significantly alter one’s blood
    pressure. Walking will likely raise an individual’s blood pressure. Sleeping will likely
    decrease blood pressure. Not relaxing for several moments before measurements can
    influence readings as well.
    In addition to these factors, beverages containing caffeine or alcohol, certain
    medications, emotional stress and even tight-fitting clothes can make a difference in
    the readings.
    WHAT CAUSES VARIATIONS IN BLOOD PRESSURE?
    An individual’s blood pressure varies greatly from day to day and season to season.
    For hypersensitive individuals, these variations are even more pronounced. Normally,
    blood pressure rises during work or play and falls to its lowest levels during sleep.
    ASSESSING HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE FOR ADULTS
    The following standards for assessing high blood pressure (without regard to age or
    gender) have been established as a guideline. Please note that other risk factors (e.g.
    diabetes, obesity, smoking, etc.) need to be taken into consideration and may affect
    these figures. Consult with your physician for an accurate assessment.

    WHAT IS HYPERTENSION?
    Hypertension (high blood pressure) is the diagnosis given when readings consistently
    rise above normal. It is well known that hypertension can lead to stroke, heart attack
    or other illness if left untreated. Referred to as a “silent killer” because it does not
    always produce symptoms that alert you to the problem, hypertension is treatable
    when diagnosed early.
    CAN HYPERTENSION BE CONTROLLED?
    In many individuals, hypertension can be controlled by altering lifestyle and
    minimizing stress, and by appropriate medication prescribed and monitored by
    your doctor. The American Heart Association recommends the following lifestyle
    suggestions to prevent or control hypertension:
    Don’t smoke. Have regular physical checkups.
    Reduce salt and fat intake. Maintain proper weight.
    Exercise routinely. Monitor your blood pressure at periodic
    intervals.
    WHY MEASURE BLOOD PRESSURE AT HOME?
    It is now well known that, for many individuals, blood pressure readings taken in a
    doctor’s office or hospital setting might be elevated as a result of apprehension and
    anxiety. This response is commonly called “white coat hypertension.”
    In any case, self-measurement at home supplements your doctor’s readings and
    provides a more accurate, complete blood pressure history. In addition, clinical studies
    have shown that the detection and treatment of hypertension is improved when
    patients both consult their physicians and monitor their own blood pressure at home.
    MAINTENANCE INSTRUCTIONS
    BASIC CARE OF YOUR HOME BLOOD PRESSURE KIT
    With proper care, your Home Blood Pressure Kit will provide many years of reliable
    service. To insure a well functioning unit, follow these basic rules:
    Handle the pressure manometer with care. Do not drop or jar. The needle should
    indicate zero when cuff is fully deflated.
    Always deflate cuff before storing.
    Avoid hitting objects against surface of stethoscope.
    Store all items, including instruction booklet, in the convenient storage case
    provided.
    A&D Medical has checked your blood pressure unit to assure reliability and accuracy
    prior to shipment. How ever, as with any sensitive instrument subject to repeated
    use, we recommend your blood pressure unit be checked periodically for proper
    calibration to ensure accurate blood pressure readings.
    CHECKING FOR ACCURACY
    HOW TO CHECK YOUR HOME BLOOD PRESSURE KIT FOR ACCURACY
    1. Detach manometer from bladder tube. Hold manometer in a vertical position.
    2. If the needle on the dial rests within the zero indicator on the face plate, your unit
    is guaranteed to be accurate.
    3. If the needle rests outside the zero indicator, it should be recalibrated.
    4. To recalibrate, insert the small screwdriver into the hose connector end of the
    manometer. Turn the screw driver in either direction without going all the way
    around the dial to get the needle back to the zero indicator.
    5. If the unit cannot be recalibrated using this method, please contact A&D Medical
    at 1-888-726-9966.
