7 day Blood pressure readings

  • Systolic is the first number and Diastolic is the second number.
  • Measure from the upper arm using an accurate device. It is very important that your arm is supported on a table, with a small cushion if necessary and that the cuff around your arm is at the same level as your heart.
  • Take your blood pressure a quiet place whilst seated, wearing short sleeved or loose fitting clothing with your arm and back supported, legs uncrossed and whilst you are not talking - talking and crossed legs increase blood pressure.
  •  Always use the same arm.
  •  Take two consecutive readings, at least a minute apart, morning and evening for 7 days recording the lower of the two readings onto the BP log sheet. 
  • Once you have completed 7 days of measurements and added your name and date of birth, please press submit 
  • If you prefer please download the paper copy from the button below, fill it in and hand to reception
