Do not waste time taking your pulse pressure. ...Read more

Margin of error: When taking blood pressure it is important to remember that all cuff measurements will have potential for slight variability. 99/77 ; 100/71 really aren't out of sync with each other. Also remember repeatedly inflating a BP cuff over the same spot in a short time span can artificially effect the results. ...Read more

Need context: It's hard to determine for your situation. If your pulse rates are abnormal - it lacks clinical context . Fo you have symptoms at your resting rate? Are you on medications like a beta blocker that can affect your heart rate? Remember, we doctors avoid treating numbers- we treat the patient!
