- I don't move or talk once I turn on the blood pressure monitor. Moving or talking alters my blood pressure measurement.
- I sit upright in a chair. Slumping also alters my blood pressure measurement so I sit upright while taking my blood pressure.
- My arm is at a less than 45 degree angle and my wrist is at the level of my heart. Putting my arm lower (resting against the table) or higher alters the blood pressure measurement. I also try to relax my fingers and not curl my fist to a ball while taking my blood pressure measurement.
I really like the Santamedical Wrist Digital Blood Pressure Monitor because it's easy to use and is accurate (again, when properly used). It's very compact and small that I can store it easily and bring it on the go.
You can purchase the Santamedical Wrist Digital Blood Pressure on Amazon with free shipping if you are a Prime member.
