Posted by Marc on April 16, 2000 at 21:29:41:

I have just started to monitor my own pressure.

When I start letting the air out own the cuff I know that the upper reading should be noted as soon as I hear my
pulse in my stethoscope.

My problem is I start hearing a very faint pulse at around 150 but not until it gets down to 138 do i here a heavy pulse.

Which pulse do I follow for an accurate reading, the first faint pulse or the booming second pulse?

Please help.
