A blood pressure reading is derived from measuring the force of your blood flow against applied pressure.
Generally, you should see your healthcare provider to have your blood pressure tested. The doctor measures your blood pressure using an instrument called a sphygmomanometer.
A cuff is placed around your upper arm and inflated. The inflated cuff compresses a large artery in the arm, temporarily stopping the flow of blood. The person measuring your blood pressure will listen with a stethoscope while slowly releasing air from the cuff. He or she will listen for the sound of blood pulsing in the artery, which can only be heard for a short amount of time.
Your systolic pressure (top number) is the measurement taken when the first sound is heard.
Your diastolic pressure (bottom number) is the measurement taken when the last sound is heard.
Some people get nervous when they visit the doctor, which causes their blood pressure to rise. If this happens to you, your healthcare provider may suggest ambulatory blood pressure monitoring or self-monitoring, so he or she can get a better idea of your normal daily blood pressure.
