Upper arm blood pressure monitors, how do they work?
The Heart Foundation recommends using an upper arm blood pressure monitor because it gives reliable results. This device takes a blood pressure measurement through the upper arm with a special cuff. The cuff is inflated and builds up the pressure in the arteries. Then the pressure is reduced again. The blood pressure monitor measures the vibrations in the vascular wall during the compression and opening of the artery.
Correct use of upper arm blood pressure monitors is important. So read the manual of the blood pressure monitor carefully. Blood pressure can vary greatly throughout the day. Measure blood pressure therefore twice in the morning and twice in the evening. Keep an interval of 5 minutes. Blood pressure may be higher during the first measurement.
