Calibrate your cuff!
I ask my patients to record their blood pressure
readings at home and then bring in both their readings & their BP machine.
Then i check their BP using their cuff and our office machine w/o changing position in between. That tells me whether your cuff reads high or low compared to ours and allows me to better interpret your readings at home. And be sure to use right size cuff for your arm.
