Manage your results
Please read the instruction leaflet carefully before using your Veroval® product for the first time, since correct blood pressure measurement requires correct operation of the device. These instructions will guide you through the individual steps for measuring your own blood pressure. You will be given important and useful hints to ensure that you obtain reliable results for your personal blood pressure profile.
Many factors play a role in blood pressure measurement. These ten general rules help you to measure correctly.
- Avoid nicotine and alcohol for an hour before measuring your blood pressure.
- Do not drink any coffee immediately before measuring it.
- Ensure your bladder is empty. A full bladder increases blood pressure by about 10 mmHg.
- Do not measure if you are under stress, in pain or afraid. These factors affect blood pressure.
- Ensure when measuring that the cuff is put on in the right place. If you wish to measure your blood pressure with the upper arm device, the edge of the cuff must be 2.5 cm above the bend of the elbow. If using a wrist device, the correct site of measurement is 1 cm above the wrist.
- When positioning the wrist or upper arm, ensure that the site of measurement is at heart level; if the position deviates by about 1.5 cm, the blood pressure changes by + 1 mmHg.
- Relax your arm muscles during measurement. Tensing the muscles increases the blood pressure by about 10 mmHg.
- Do not talk during the measurement. Conversation during measurement can increase the blood pressure by about 6-7 mmHg.
- The upper arm must not be constricted by clothing when measuring with an upper arm device. The best thing is to remove all clothing from the upper arm.
- Check before measuring that you have applied the upper arm cuff correctly. If you can push two fingers under the edge of the cuff, you can start measuring. A cuff that is too loose or too tight gives readings that are too high or too low respectively.
- Have a rest for one minute before you repeat the measurement.
- Remember that blood pressure levels are subject to a characteristic diurnal rhythm, and can change according to the time of day and the daily demands at that moment. To obtain comparable readings, the best thing is always to select the same time for taking the reading.
