Blood Pressure Reading 

  • Understanding your readings

    Blood pressure readings involve two key numbers: Systolic (top number) and diastolic (bottom number) pressures, measured in millimeters of mercury (mmHg).

    • Optimal: Readings are below 120 for systolic and below 80 for diastolic.

    • Normal: Reading is between 120-129 for systolic and between 80-84 for diastolic.

    • High Normal: Readings are between 130-139 for systolic and between 85-89 for diastolic.

    • Grade 1 Mild Hypertension: Readings are between 140-159 for systolic and between 90-99 for diastolic.

    • Grade 2 Moderate Hypertension: Readings are between 160-179 for systolic and between 100-109 for diastolic.

    • Grade 3 Severe Hypertension: Readings are above 180 for systolic and above 110 for diastolic.

Systolic vs. Diastolic

Systolic (heart value):

The systolic value is always displayed at the top of the blood pressure with reading and is the higher measurement. It provides information about the pressure in the vascular system when the heart muscle contracts and pumps blood into the vessels.

Diastolic (vessel value):  

The diastolic value is always at the bottom of the reading and is a lower reading than the systolic.
It measures the pressure at the moment the heart relaxes, i.e. when the heart fills with blood again.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do I properly measure my blood pressure?

1. Rest for at least 5 minutes before taking your blood pressure. Avoid smoking, drinking caffeine, or exercising for at least 30 minutes before taking your blood pressure.
 
2. Sit in an upright position with your back supported and your feet flat on the floor.

3. Place the blood pressure cuff on your bare skin, with the cuff's lower end, about 1 inch above the bend of your elbow.

4. The cuff should be snug but not tight. Make sure that the bottom of the cuff is level with the center of your heart.

5. Press the "start" button on the blood pressure monitor.

6. Do not talk or move during the measurement.

Why do I get different readings at home than at the doctor's office?

There are numerous factors that can lead to differences in blood pressure measurements between those taken at the doctor's office and elsewhere. The following are among the most common reasons, though this list is not exhaustive.

1. White Coat Effect: Anxiety or stress induced by the medical environment can lead to higher blood pressure readings, known as the white coat effect.
 
2. Technique Discrepancies: Inaccuracies in the measurement technique, such as improper cuff size or positioning, can cause variations in readings between different healthcare providers or settings.

3. Time of Measurement: Blood pressure can fluctuate throughout the day due to various factors like activity level, stress, or recent food or caffeine intake, leading to different readings.  

Is an upper arm monitor more accurate than wrist?

Both types of monitors can be accurate, but there are some differences to consider when choosing between them.

Upper Arm: considered to be the most accurate type of home blood pressure monitors. These monitors are generally larger and more complex than wrist monitors, but they are more accurate and reliable.

Wrist: These kinds of monitors are equally acuurate, however, the position of the wrist during measurement can also affect the accuracy of the reading. The American Heart Association recommends that wrist monitors should be positioned at the same level as the heart, which can be difficult to achieve when using a wrist monitor.

What is the best time to measure my blood pressure?

The best time to measure your blood pressure can vary depending on your routine and any specific instructions from your healthcare provider. However, there are a few general recommendations:

1. Consistency: Try to measure it at the same time each day for consistency in readings.

2. Morning and Evening: Some people measure their blood pressure in the morning before taking medications or eating and in the evening before bedtime.

3. Before Medication: If you're taking medications for blood pressure or other conditions, check with your doctor about the best time to measure it in relation to your medication schedule.
