To measure blood pressure, you need a blood pressure monitor device. Most doctors recommend preferring an arm-cuff type monitor, rather than wrist-cuff ones.
- Wrap the cuff around your bicep. It should be snug, but not tight, because the cuff fill inflate.
- Sit upright in a relaxed position and rest your arm on a table or desk so that your wrist is at the level of your heart.
- Start the blood pressure monitor and sit still during the measurement.
- After the measurement, open the Blood Pressure Log in Heartify and enter your systolic (top) and diastolic (bottom) numbers.
If you track your blood pressure regularly, you can export a report of your blood pressure log to show to your doctor during your next check-up.
