How to measure the blood pressure correctly

The measurement of blood pressure in the doctor's practice 





If you suffer from high blood pressure you need to take regular measurements. 

For patients who suffer from an increased cardiovascular risk, the doctor will always take a measurement of their blood pressure.

This is routine practice for all doctors. 

If the doctor detects an increase in blood pressure, a 24-hour measurement should be performed in order to assess the results over a period of time during the course of a normal day.



The measurement with a 24-gauge 


The 24-hour blood pressure measurement is also known as "Ambulatory blood pressure monitoring (ABPM)", and it is taken over a period of 24 hours with a cuff placed on your upper-arm to measure the blood pressure.

The 24 hour measurement 

The important measurement 

Taking regular measurements is part of the normal procedure for detecting high blood pressure

The patient wears a small device that stores the values of your blood pressure over the course of 24 hours. The predetermined time intervals for the measurement are every 30 minutes during the day and every 60 minutes during the night.

In addition to this automatic measuring other instances will also be logged by the patient. These include things like meals, sleep duration and other things.

The diagnosis of hypertension 


The diagnosis of high blood pressure

If you have been diagnosed with hypertension you should also have your urine and blood tested because there might be another problem which caused the high blood pressure, for example, kidney damage.

If micro albuminuria (elevated protein content) is found in the urine, this indicates a kidney injury.

Cases include:


- A particularly severe form of high blood pressure


- A young patient
 with hypertension

- The blood pressure remains unchanged even at night

- Therapy has started, but the patient has shown no signs of improvement


If it is suspected that there are any consequential damages due to the high blood pressure, further specific studies should be made. These include:


- Funduscopy (the fundus is mirrored), vascular damage by high blood pressure to the retinacan be detected

- Ultrasound of the kidneysthe renal condition can be represented and classified visually with this investigation


- ECG, Electrocardiography provides information about the function and changes of the heart (e.g. enlarged heart muscle).

- Echocardiography - echocardiography can depict and classify the size and strength of the heart 

It should be noted that the funduscopy and echocardiography should only be carried out by trained specialists (eye doctor/cardiologist).
