Instructions for Using your Home Blood Pressure Monitor

Do not smoke, drink any drink with caffeine, or exercise for 30 minutes before using your home blood pressure monitor.  Always check your blood pressure in the same arm.  Do it in the same one your doctor uses.  If you are not sure please contact us and we will advise you.  Here are the important steps

  • Rest for at least five minutes before checking
  • Put the cuff around your upper arm following the product instructions
  • The bottom of the cuff should be 2cm above the bend of the elbow
  • Press the On button
  • The cuff will inflate and you will notice it getting very tight around your arm
  • The cuff will automatically deflate and display your blood pressure reading
  • Take at least 2 readings leaving at least a minute between each reading.

Tips for better Blood Pressure Measurement

Here are some tips to better use your home blood pressure monitor –

  • You should check your blood pressure when you are resting
  • Sit upright in a chair, with your back supported, and keep your feet flat on the floor
  • You should be comfortable with no distractions or talking
  • If your GP or hospital doctor has asked you to record your blood pressure at home, you should check it each morning and evening and keep a record which you can disuss with your doctor at your next appointment
  • You should have your monitor serviced every 2 years to make sure it is still accurate.  We can arrange this service for you
  • Find out more about blood pressure on the HSE website.
