Can you hurt yourself by using to small of a blood pressure cuff? I used mine and my wrist was hiring bad by time I was done.
Injury unlikely: I have seen bruising on the upper arm due to blood pressure cuff getting too tight. This is usually only a problem with automatic cuffs. Pain in the wrist could result from a cuff becoming too tight resulting in pressure on a nerve that runs down to the wrist. This should resolve shortly without causing damage. Ensure that your blood pressure cuff is proper size to ensure accurate results. ...Read more

It's easy: When standing hold your arm out in front of your body, not quite at 90 degrees, so that the blood pressure cuff the same distance from the floor as your heart.

Chill, but not much: I advise patients to check their bp first thing in the AM. Sitting down, arm relaxed. I like the Omron automatic cuff (around your upper arm; do not use a wrist device). Keep a diary of your bp and bring to your MD for review if the pressure averages are elevated (greater than 130-140/80-90). Remember, bp is dynamic and being too calm and relaxed is not your "normal" state. ...Read more
