Why measure blood pressure at home?
Blood pressure measured at a clinic or doctor‘s office may trigger nervosity at the patient and therefore produce an elevated reading, 25 to 30 mmHg higher than the value measured at home. Home measurement reduces the effects of outside influences on blood pressure readings, supplements the doctor‘s readings and provides a more accurate, complete blood pressure history.
