The first measurement should be in the morning before eating or taking any medications, and the second in the evening. Each time you measure, take two or three readings to make sure your results are accurate.What is the best position to take your blood pressure?The patient should sit or lie comfortably. The arm should be fully supported on a flat surface at heart level. (If the arm’s position varies, or is not level with the heart, measurement values obtained will not be consistent with the patient’s true blood pressure).What is the normal range of blood pressure in adults?While BP can change from minute to minute with changes in posture, exercise, stress or sleep, it should normally be less than 120/80 mm Hg (less than 120 systolic AND less than 80 diastolic) for an adult age 20 or over. About one in three U.S. adults has high blood pressure.How do you read a blood pressure monitor?Check the reading on the dial. This number is your diastolic pressure. Write down your blood pressure, with the systolic pressure before the diastolic pressure (for example, 120/80). If you want to repeat the measurement, wait 2 to 3 minutes before reinflating the cuff.
