While generally not as volatile, diastolic pressure can still vary significantly. In hypertensive individuals, variations are even more pronounced. Normally, blood pressure is at its lowest during sleep and rises in the morning and throughout the day. The chart illustrates the fluctuations that could occur in a typical day.
White-coat hypertension is believed to occur in 20 to 40 percent of patients that are diagnosed as hypertensive. It is very important to regularly monitor blood pressure at home and keep a log of the readings to share with your doctor. This allows your doctor to determine if your high blood pressure is only occurring at the clinic or if you truly have hypertension.

Q: How can I tell if my blood pressure monitor is accurate?
A: The technology used in your new blood pressure monitor meets the highest clinical standards of the British Hypertension Society and American Association for the Advancement of Medical Instrumentation (AAMI). When used correctly, this monitor will provide readings comparable to those taken in your doctor’s office.
Q: Does my blood pressure monitor need to be calibrated?
A: We recommend having the monitor checked for accuracy every two years. To have your blood pressure monitor's accuracy verified, please call customer support at 1-800-568-4147 (Mon-Fri 8am to 8pm, eastern).
Q: Can I use rechargeable batteries with this monitor?
A: Yes. Please use only type "NiMH" reusable batteries and recharge them using an external charger, following manufacturer's instructions carefully.
Q: Is this blood pressure cuff latex-free?
Q: Can I take my blood pressure measurement on my left OR right arm?
A: Yes - this monitor will work with either arm. However, please note that pressures are typically different between the left and right arm, so it's important to always measure using the same arm.
Q: Why are my blood pressure readings higher or lower than at my doctor’s office?
A: Many people experience what is called “White Coat Hypertension” when having blood pressure measured by a doctor or clinician. Discuss the possibility of White Coat Hypertension with your doctor. Also note normal pressure fluctuations throughout the day.
Q: My blood pressure varies throughout the day. How do I know which is my true blood pressure?
A: The average of several results, obtained over several days under comparable conditions, represents your individual blood pressure. It is important to measure your blood pressure consistently and regularly to better manage your heart health.
Q: Can I use this blood pressure monitor during pregnancy?
A: Yes, this Microlife monitor has been validated as accurate for use under special conditions such as preeclampsia (hypertension during pregnancy) and end-stage renal disease.
Q: Is a larger cuff available?
A: The cuff included with the monitor is sized M-L (8.7 - 18.1"). A larger size (L-XL, 12.6 - 20.5") is available by calling customer support at 1-800-568-4147 (Mon-Fri 8am to 8pm, eastern).
Q: Is the BP Analyzer Software available to download?
