Why we need to measure blood pressure ?
The current high pressure has become one of the diseases endangering people's health ,
Some people are lack of proper self health care consciousness, do not pay attention to
measure blood pressure, often lead to illness or severe complications.
Measuring blood pressure often, can control of your blood pressure and body condition in time
, good to detect ,treat ,control hypertension early ,and avoid causing disease of heart head

People over the age of 35 should detect the blood pressure each year , it is advantageous to
the census and screening out hypertension patients and the people at high risk of high blood
For high blood pressure patients should measure blood pressure, and take the correct health
management intervention and treatment to control normal pressure .So we need measure
blood pressure regularly .
Actually,the blood pressure monitor is measured values reflect the blood
pressure of human body measurement time value,the blood pressure is
changing all the time,it belongs to normal phenomenon for each
measurement.Only at the same time each day,use the same posture ,in the
same mood and position for measurement can be get the comparable
An instrument for measuring blood pressure, typically consisting of an inflatable rubber cuff that is applied to the arm and connected to a column of mercury next to a graduated scale, enabling the determination of systolic and diastolic blood pressure by increasing and gradually releasing the pressure in the cuff.
Factors influence the accuracy of electronic sphygmomanometer
The change of the blood pressure itself
The blood pressure of everyone are changing all day ,it changes with the mental state, time,
seasons, body temperature
1) Mental state :
The changes of angry ,nervous, fears , excited and pain, can make the systolic blood
pressure (high pressure) higher, and diastolic blood pressure (low pressure) did not change
2) Time and Sleep :
General blood pressure at evening is higher than morning, the blood pressure at night is
the lowest, it rises rapidly after morning, There have a peak at 6:00-10:00 AM and 4:00 to
6:00 PM and slowing decline in the future. The blood pressure slightly higher when we are
excessive fatigue and poor sleep.
3)Season :the blood pressure will rise at cold situation , it is reduce under the
environment of high temperature .
4)the blood pressure drops after smoking, drinking, drinking coffee, taking ashower
5)General the blood pressure of right upper limb higher than the left, and 2-4mmHg
between them .The blood pressure of lower limb is higher 2-4 mmHg than the upper .
