Re: Legitimate Variation in BP or Error?

Wrist cuffs are not accurate.

An accurate resting blood pressure requires that you are in a relaxed, seated postion for 5-10 minutes prior to taking the reading. Of course, you need an arm cuff that is of the appropriate size, as a small cuff falsely elevates the readings.
