How to take your Blood Pressure Readings
In the morning, ensure you are rested and have taken no exercise in the last 30 minutes.
Sit in a chair comfortably upright with your arm supported on a table beside you with both feet on the ground.
Put the cuff on your upper arm (5cm above your elbow) resting on the table. The cuff should roughly be at the level of your heart.
Press the On/Start button on the BP monitor and take two readings at least 1 minute apart.
Repeat in the evening for a total of 7 days using alternate arms. Make a note of the readings and your pulse rate
Once you have completed 7 days worth of readings, please add these to the form below and submit to the Surgery.
If you are using one of our blood pressure monitors, please return it to the Surgery as soon as possible so this can be passed to another patient.
