BLOOD PRESSURE
Blood Pressure is a measure of the blood’s pressure in the circulatory
system, which changes constantly during the course of the cardiac
cycle. Blood pressure readings report two values. The higher reading
(systolic pressure) shows the highest pressure in the arteries
occurring when the heart contracts. The lower reading (diastolic
pressure) shows the lowest pressure in the arteries, which occurs
right before the heart contracts. Blood pressure readings are written
with the highest value first, then the lowest value. Readings of 120/80
are considered to be normal, with high blood pressure being defined
as a systolic pressure which is 140mmHg or more at rest and a
diastolic pressure which is 90mmHg or more at rest. Only a patient’s
physician is qualified to determine whether the readings obtained are
normal for that person.
Measuring blood pressure: Have the patient, while relaxed and in a
sitting position, extend the arm from which the blood pressure will be
taken to the front or laterally with the palm of the hand up.
Attach the cuff and diaphragm: Place the cuff approximately one inch
above the bend of the elbow against the skin of the upper arm with
the artery marker placed on top of the brachial artery. Never place
the cuff over clothing. Wrap the cuff around the arm and secure the
cuff with the “touch and hold” strap (If the cuff has a metal D-shaped
ring, pull the free end of the cuff through the D-ring and close the cuff
with the “touch and hold” strap). The cuff should be snug, but not too
tight. If one or two fingers can fit between the cuff and the arm, the
cuff is properly secured. Place the diaphragm of the stethoscope over
the brachial artery inferior to the cuff.

Inflating the cuff: Close the bulb’s air valve by turning the air
release valve clockwise. Squeeze the inflation bulb at a steady rate
until the gauge’s needle points at approximately 30mmHg above
the individual’s normal systolic pressure value. If the individual’s
normal blood pressure is not known, it is recommended to inflate to
200mmHg.
Systolic blood pressure reading: Open the air release valve slowly
by turning it counter-clockwise while holding the diaphragm of the
stethoscope over the brachial artery. Proper deflation rate is vital for
an accurate reading. The recommended deflation rate is 2-3mmHg
per second, or a drop of one to two marks on the pressure gauge
with each heartbeat. Do not keep the cuff inflated any longer
than necessary. As the cuff begins to deflate, listen carefully with
the stethoscope. Note the reading on the gauge as soon as a faint,
rhythmic tapping or thumping sound is heard. The first sound is
the systolic pressure reading. Always check with your health care
provider to ensure readings are performed correctly.
Diastolic blood pressure reading: Allow the pressure to continue
dropping at the same deflation rate. Note the reading on the gauge
when the last audible thumping, swishing, or blowing sound is heard;
this is the diastolic blood pressure reading. After a few seconds have
passed and no audible thumping, swishing, or blowing sounds are
heard, deflate the cuff using the air release valve completely. Remove
the cuff and stethoscope from the arm.
Record the systolic and diastolic readings. Repeat the measurement
two or more times to ensure accuracy. Only a patient’s physician is
qualified to analyze blood pressure.
