In this Healthline article, you'll learn about:
- How BP monitors work
" Within the cuff, a sensor detects blood flow. The point when the blood begins to flow intermittently through the artery is the systolic blood pressure. This is the top number on a blood pressure reading. The point when the blood flow goes from intermittent to steady is the diastolic blood pressure. This is the bottom number. "
- Wellue BP2 Connect
" The Wellue BP2 Connect features a function that takes three blood pressure readings and provides the average. The device also has an ECG function that can detect abnormalities. Readings instantly sync to your phone, and you can share them with your healthcare professional. "
- When to contact a doctor about your BP readings
" If your blood pressure reading suddenly exceeds 180/120 mm Hg, wait at least 5 minutes and test again. If you have another high reading, call your doctor right away, especially if you have symptoms like blurry vision, numbness, or chest and back pain. "
