Re: Proper Way to take blood pressure

Yes. Make sure though that your back is supported. Also arm should be palm up, limp and relaxed. Make sure also that both feet are on the floor.

My cardiologist suggests you take 3 readings, each about 2-3 minutes apart.
Throw out the first reading, then average the other two.
