During Use of the Device

  • Avoid movement or talking during blood pressure measurement.
  • When measuring, ensure the cuff is wrapped tightly against the skin or only on a thin layer of clothing.
  • Avoid continuous measurement of blood pressure for a short period of time, as it may lead to inaccurate results due to unbalanced blood pressure.
  • Measure blood pressure at the same time of day, using the same device, and record the measurements.
  • Maintain the correct posture while using the blood pressure monitor.
  • Sit on a chair with feet placed on a flat surface, and raise the arm on the table so that the cuff is level with the heart.

Step 2: Applying the Cuff

For arm cuff blood pressure monitors, wrap the cuff tightly around the entire circumference of the arm, avoiding wrapping over clothing. Ensure that the edge of the cuff is 1-2 cm away from the wrist.

For wrist cuff blood pressure monitors, wrap the cuff tightly around the wrist for accurate blood pressure measurement.

How to Interpret the Results on the Microlife Blood Pressure Monitor

Interpreting the results on the Microlife blood pressure monitor is similar to other blood pressure monitors. Here are some key points for reading the Microlife blood pressure monitor:

  • SYS: Represents the top blood pressure index, also known as systolic blood pressure.
  • DIA: Represents the bottom blood pressure index, also known as diastolic blood pressure.
  • In addition, the device displays the pulse measurement index as Pulse.

Interpreting the Results on the Microlife Blood Pressure Monitor

Based on the measurements obtained from the Microlife blood pressure monitor, the blood pressure can be categorized as normal, high, or low.

  • Low blood pressure: Systolic blood pressure index less than 90 mmHg or diastolic blood pressure index less than 60 mmHg.
  • Normal blood pressure: Ranges from 90/60 mmHg to 140/90 mmHg. For young individuals, a blood pressure index up to 145/95 mmHg is considered normal.
  • High blood pressure: Systolic blood pressure index greater than 140 mmHg or diastolic blood pressure index greater than 90 mmHg.
