Does holding your breath when tested for tension affect the results of the tension?

1 Answer:

Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com

Hold your breath while checking blood pressure can indeed affect the results. Hold your breath briefly (just a few seconds) can cause a decrease in blood pressure for a while but if you hold your breath for too long, your pulse will increase and your blood pressure will also increase.


Therefore, to get a good blood pressure measurement result, you have to sit and relax with it for at least 5 minutes. During this time, you are expected to breathe normally. Doing deep breathing techniques (taking deep breaths, holding your breath briefly, then exhaling slowly also) can help normalize blood pressure. You can do this deep breathing technique especially if you experience certain fears when doing a doctor's examination.

So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
