Some people experience high blood pressure whenever they visit the doctor's clinic. This condition is actually named "white coat syndrome." If your physician suspects this, you may be told to monitor your blood pressure level in your own home or asked to have on a device called an blood pressure monitor for home users. This instrument is often worn for 24 hours and is able to take blood pressure every 30 minutes. On this part you will discover much more about the diagnosis of high blood pressure.

How do I recognize if I suffer from high blood pressure?

hypertension often doesn't have signs or symptoms. The only method to find out if you have it and search for the proper high blood pressure remedy, is to be examined. By using the common tension cuff, your physician or nurse can simply tell if you have this disease.

How To Test Blood Pressure?

Obtaining your tension checked is fast and painless. Blood pressure is measured in millimeters of mercury (mmHg) and noted as two numbers systolic pressure "over" diastolic stress. For instance, the physician might say "130 over 80" as a blood pressure reading.

Both numbers in the blood pressure reading are relevant. As we become older, systolic blood stress is especially important.

To check your tension, your physician will use a well-known instrument with a long name. It is called a sphygmomanometer (spoken sfig'-mo-ma-nom-e-ter), and looks something like this:

Cuff - A cuff is veiled around your upper arm.
Pump - A pump inflates the cuff and it stops the blood circulation in the artery for a short time.
Valve - A valve lets some air out of the cuff, which allows the blood to circulate again.
Dial - A numerical dial or a column of mercury can be used to record the blood pressure reading.
Stethoscope - A stethoscope is used to hear the sound of blood circulating again through the artery. The first thumping sound is the systolic blood pressure. When that sound can no longer be heard, that's the diastolic stress.

Some blood pressure testing equipments use electronic instruments or digital readouts. In these instances, the blood pressure parameters appear on a small sized display or is signaled in beeps, without using a stethoscope.

Suggestions for Having Your Blood Pressure Taken

Don't consume caffeine or smoke cigarettes 30 minutes before having the tension read.
Previous to the test, sit for five minutes with your spine supported and your feet parallel on the ground. Rest your arm over a flat surface at the level of your heart.
Wear short sleeves so your arm is shown up.
Go to the bathroom previous to the reading. A full vesica can change the blood pressure reading.
Take your blood pressure twice, taken at least two minutes apart, and average the results.
Ask your physician what is the blood pressure reading in numbers and to help you find the proper high blood pressure remedy.

Classes for BP in Adults

(Ages 18 Years and Older)

Normal: Systolic less than 120mmHg and Diastolic < 80mmHg
Prehypertension: Systolic 120-139 mmHg or Diastolic between 80mmHg and 89mmHg
Stage 1 Hypertension: Systolic 140-159 mmHg or Diastolic 90-99 mmHg
Stage 2 Hypertension: Systolic greater than or equal to160mmHg or Diastolic greater than or equal to100mmHg

When systolic and diastolic tension belong to distinct classifications, the superior group will be used to classify blood pressure level. For example, 160/80 mmHg would be phase 2 hypertension (high blood pressure).

What instrument can I use to get my own blood pressure?

Exams at home can be done by using the familiar stress cuff and a stethoscope, or with an electronic monitor, such as a digital readout display. Furthermore, Make sure that the one that will use the instrument reads the instructions before taking blood pressure readings. Your physician, nurse, or pharmacist can help you look at the device and teach you how to use it. You may also ask for their guidance in choosing the right one for you. BP devices can be found at various locations, such as websites and pharmacies.
