Why Is My Blood Pressure Reading So High? 10 Factors that Affect BP Readings

Have you ever obtained a blood pressure reading that was higher than expected? Whether as a patient, or caregiver, the likelihood of high readings is not uncommon. Most people – health care professionals included – do not realize just how volatile blood pressure can be. It is changing constantly – minute by minute in response to both physical and psychological stimuli.

Intro to Blood Pressure

Almost everyone knows that blood pressure is one of the most important measurements in medicine. Every time a patient visits a physician's office or hospital, blood pressure is one of the first vitals taken. Since blood pressure plays such a key role in maintaining overall health, we’ll review the basics of blood pressure and some of the terminology used in its measurement.

A Cuff by Any Other Name

One of the most important components of a blood pressure instrument is the cuff: the portion that wraps around the patient’s limb and occludes the artery. In automated NIBP, the cuff does double duty, not only imparting air pressure and occluding the artery, but also acting as the “sensor.” In other words, transmitting the vibrations that are the basis for automatic oscillometric measurement.
