What is best practice? Well, that reminds me of these
When you get up in the morning, do you say,
“God Lord, morning!” or do you say,
Good morning, Lord!”
. Best Practice for taking a blood pressure
For 5 minutes before BP taken
Quiet, dimly lit room
In a Chair with good back support
Feet on the ground
Arm extended at the level of the heart atrium
For 30 minutes prior to BP:
During Blood Pressure:
No Talking by anyone (nurse or patient)
Remove clothing under the cuff
Correct cuff size
Largeis better than small
Small will increase values
Large even too large does not alter values (you do not get a false low value with too large of a
Uninflated the cuff should be snug but comfortable Inflated the cuff becomes tight
If you expect the systolic pressure to be 180
Then go up to 200 so as it drops the cuff will accurately read 180 or surrounding value
A common concern is when multiple pressures are taken, which one to count?
Turns out after repeated measures: the lowest is the correct one!
In a study of Blood Pressures of 20 Medical Clinics All BPs > 140/90 were repeated and 36%
were under that reading
If your blood pressure is high when the nurse took it Perhaps when you see your doctor you could
ask if he
could take your blood pressure again, because it seemed a bit high from your readings at home and
you would like your medication to be dosed based upon a lower reading.
Arm cuff (not wrist or finger measuring) is best practice. Never over fabric
Roll up the sleeve of a shirt or pull the arm free from the shirt.
Everyone enjoys a fitting reply; it is wonderful to say the right thing at the right time.
God bless you and Keep you,
