Did you know that there is a correct way to check your blood pressure?  Health officials and individuals are encouraged to pay attention to how blood pressure is checked. 

  • Blood pressure cuff size impacts pressure reading results.  If the cuff is the wrong size it could give a reading that is too high or too low.

Remember uncontrolled blood pressure increases risks of serious health problems including renal failure, heart attack and stroke.
