Unhealthy blood pressure can bring serious harm. High blood pressure can cause heart, cerebrovascular and kidney disease, and severely lead to common high blood pressure complications such as stroke, myocardial infarction and renal failure; hypotension can cause slow blood circulation, and even affect The blood supply to the brain and heart causes direct fainting.
There is a serious problem: many people with unhealthy blood pressure do not know that their blood pressure is too high or too low! The reason for this phenomenon is that many people do not measure blood pressure regularly, and the other is that people with high blood pressure and low blood pressure may not have obvious symptoms. However, the absence of symptoms does not mean that your blood pressure must be normal! Therefore, in order to avoid the above serious situation, it is very important to use a digital sphygmomanometer to measure blood pressure on a regular basis, which can help us to "know" our blood pressure level.
How do you determine whether your blood pressure is high or low?
When the blood pressure rises to an unhealthy level, that is, 140/90mmHg, we define it as high blood pressure; and when the blood pressure drops to 90/60mmHg, it means hypotension.
Finally, we need to operate the digital sphygmomanometer correctly to get its own accurate blood pressure value. When measuring, relax and sit on a chair with a backrest, and relax your feet on the ground. The bare arms wrap the cuffs. Pay attention to the position and tightness of the cuff. The cuff should be at the same height as the heart, and the lower edge should be 2 to 3 cm away from the elbow. The elasticity should be kept so that 1 or 2 fingers can be inserted. Press the start button, the sphygmomanometer will inflate and deflate automatically, and the data can be read.
