Why is it useful to measure blood pressure at home?
To get a proper idea of your real blood pressure, your doctor will find it important that you get readings of blood pressure over a period of time and during different times of the day. So, when is the best time of day to take your blood pressure? Doctors generally recommend following the rule of 3
Because individual blood pressures vary greatly, it's really important that you follow your doctor's instructions when measuring & recording your blood pressure.
Normally your blood pressure will rise while at work (exertion) and will be at its lowest during a sleep period. It is better to avoid measuring your blood pressure when you're under stress, have consumed caffeine or used a tobacco product in the past 30 minutes, or have recently exercised. So, taking your blood pressure is best done after you rest for at least 5 minutes.
Recommendation from the Irish Heart Foundation: If you are over the age of 30, you should have your blood pressure checked at least every five years.
