  • Make sure you are comfortably seated with your arm out-stretch in front of you but in line with your heart.

  • Your arm should be relaxed.

Know Your Blood Pressure Numbers

The first number is your systolic blood pressure and that represents the amount of pressure within your arteries as your heart contracts to pumps blood through your blood vessels.

The second number is your diastolic blood pressure the bottom number of your blood pressure between beats when your heart relaxes.

A normal blood pressure reading is below 120 mm Hg/80 mm Hg. While pre-hypertension reading is 120 - 139 mm Hg/80 - 89 mm Hg.  You cannot feel prehypertension so you must have a monitor who will read and store these readings for you to note changes.
