I am often asked ‘how do I know if my home monitor readings are accurate?’ Especially by people who have just started monitoring.
Last month I discovered The American Heart Association has a short video that shows exactly how to take accurate readings. The American Heart Association has very clear guidelines on how to use a blood pressure home monitor. It is a great video and even if you have been home monitoring for years, there are still tips to learn.
I’d be interested to see if there was information you didn’t know, especially their recommendation on wrist monitors.
