Don't Forget to Rest
Our daily Blood Pressure (BP) increases and decreases in response to our physical and mental activities. BP increases during exercise or stress and decreases when we relax or rest.
Therefore, failing to rest before a BP measurement will produce results that are higher than your true Baseline or lowest BP. Most medical diagnosis and treatment protocols assume that your BP results are at Baseline, and were obtained using Resting Blood Pressure Procedures.
Please use the following Resting BP Procedure before measuring your BP. It will help your MD understand your BP and treat hypertension more effectively.
Home BP results obtained using Resting BP Procedures are now recognized as a better estimate of your true Baseline BP than those obtained by a MD or Nurse. A doctorís office is not a very relaxing environment!
Thanks for resting,
Mike Kohut, President, DDMS
