More Accurate Blood Tests?
Question..Why do my blood pressure measurements always change when using a digital tensimeter. The first result is 159/95, after that the interval is measured again a few seconds down to 147/92, measured the third time down to 140/85. Which do you use as a reference? Higher or lower. Meanwhile, when using manual tension always range 135/85. Is manual tensimeter more accurate reading? Thank you..
