Blood Pressure Basics and beyond
BP measures are routinely performed and, to ensure correct values are reported, attention must be given to the methods used. Specific techniques, including selection of an appropriately sized cuff along with correct positioning of the client in relation to the equipment, are foundational to providing accurate measures at rest and during exercise. Health and fitness professionals need to be aware of normal versus hypertensive BP readings at rest and also be aware of normal versus abnormal BP changes with exercise.
