What is Blood Pressure?
Simply put, arterial blood pressure is the force of blood exerted against the walls of the arteries. There are two components to blood pressure - systolic and diastolic pressure. Systolic, the higher pressure, occurs during contraction of the heart. Diastolic, the lower pressure, occurs when the heart is at "rest."
Your level of blood pressure is determined in the circulatory center of the brain and adjusts to a variety of situations through feedback from the nervous system. To adjust blood pressure, the strength and frequency of the heart (Pulse), as well as the width of circulatory blood vessels is altered. Blood vessel width is effected by fine muscles in the blood vessel walls.

Blood pressure is traditionally measured in millimeters of mercury (mmHg). It is recorded as systolic/diastolic. For example a systolic of 120 and diastolic of 80 would be recorded 120/80.

Blood pressure is a dynamic vital sign - one that changes constantly throughout the day. A person's "resting" blood pressure is the pressure that exists first thing in the morning while a person is still at rest and before consumption of food or drink.

What is a Normal Blood Pressure?
A systolic pressure of less than 120mmHg and a diastolic pressure of under 80mmHg are recognized as normal by the Joint National Committee on Prevention, Detection, Evaluation, and Treatment of High Blood Pressure, 2003.

Note: Blood pressure does increase with age, so you must check with your doctor to find out what is “normal” for you! Even with normal blood pressure values, a regular self-check with your blood pressure monitor is recommended. You can detect possible changes in your values early and react appropriately. If you are undergoing medical treatment to control your blood pressure, keep a record of values along with time of day and date. Show these values to your doctor. Never use the results of your measurements to independently alter the drug doses prescribed by your doctor.

What Influences Blood Pressure?
Blood pressure is influenced by many factors including age, weight, physical conditioning, past illness, time of day, altitude, activity, and climate, to name just a few. In general, blood pressure is lower in the morning and increases throughout the day. It is lower in warm weather, and higher in cold weather.

Does Blood Pressure Vary?
Constantly. An individual's blood pressure varies greatly on a daily and seasonal basis. It changes throughout one's lifetime. It is not uncommon for systolic pressure to vary by 40mmHg or more throughout the course of a single day! While generally not as volatile, diastolic pressure can still vary significantly. In hypertensive individuals, variations are even more pronounced. Normally, blood pressure is at its lowest during sleep and rises in the morning and throughout the day. The chart (right) illustrates the fluctuations that could occur in a typical day.

What is Hypertension?
Hypertension (high blood pressure) is elevated systolic or diastolic levels. In 90 to 95 percent of the diagnosed cases, the specific causes are unknown, although the condition is often linked with family history, and lifestyle. This is referred to as essential hypertension. In the remaining cases, high blood pressure is a symptom of an underlying, often treatable condition, which if corrected, may normalize blood pressure. This less common type is known as secondary hypertension. Hypertension, if left untreated, may contribute to kidney disease, heart attack, stroke, or other debilitating illnesses. The following standards for assessment of high blood pressure (without regard to age) have been established by the Joint National Committee, 2003.

Remember only a physician is qualified to interpret the readings obtained from your blood pressure monitor. No attempt should ever be made at self-diagnosis or treatment.

Can Hypertension be Controlled?
Although essential hypertension cannot be cured, it can usually be controlled by altering lifestyle (including diet), adopting a program of exercise, stress management and, where necessary, with medication under a doctor's supervision. To help reduce the risk of hypertension, or keep it under control, the American Heart Association (AHA) recommends the following:
- Don't smoke
- Reduce salt and fat intake
- Maintain proper weight
- Exercise regularly
- Have regular physical checkups

Why Measure Blood Pressure at Home?
Clinical studies have shown improved detection and treatment of hypertension when regular home blood pressure monitoring is done in consultation with a physician. Blood pressure measured in a doctor's office or hospital setting may cause anxiety and lead to an elevated reading - a condition referred to as "white coat hypertension."
Home measurements generally reduce the "outside" influences on blood pressure readings, and can provide a more comprehensive and meaningful blood pressure history.

Note: While it is important to keep an accurate record of your blood pressure measurements, don't be overly concerned by the results of any one measurement. Individual results may be influenced by spiking of your pressure due to diet, anxiety, or mis-measurement resulting from excessive arm movement, or misapplication of the cuff. Many readings taken at the same time each day give a more comprehensive blood pressure history.

Always be sure to note the date and time when recording blood pressure and pulse measurements. For best results, and with time permitting, 3 successive measurements may be taken daily. Make sure to allow at least 5 minute intervals between measurements. Discard any reading that appears suspect and record the average of the remaining readings.

How is Blood Pressure Measured?
Health care professionals traditionally use a device known as a sphygmomanometer along with a stethoscope - essentially a professional version of the very same instrument you have purchased. The sphygmomanometer is a system consisting of an inflatable bladder contained within a cuff, inflation bulb with air control valve, and pressure measuring manometer (gauge). The gauge may be mechanical or mercurial. The cuff is wrapped around the limb and inflated to constrict blood flow to the artery. As pressure is released from the cuff through the deflation valve, blood flow returns to the artery producing pulse beats known as Korotkoff sounds, which are detected with the stethoscope. Systolic pressure is recorded at the onset of these sounds. Diastolic pressure is generally recorded when the sounds disappear (when blood flow to the artery returns to normal).
