What is Blood Pressure Monitoring?

Blood Pressure Monitoring is the measuring of your blood pressure using a device called a sphygmomanometer.

A cuff is placed around one of your arms and is pumped to restrict the blood flow in your arm. A stethoscope is used to listen to your pulse while the pressure in the cuff is realised.

If you are worried about your blood pressure at any point, you can have your blood tested.

What happens after Blood Pressure Monitoring?

The pressure in the cuff is recorded at 2 points to give your blood pressure reading. Your blood pressure is reviewed and sent on to your healthcare specialist to give a diagnosis and organise any further treatment, if necessary.
