BP being taken while talking.

Q: Is it true that blood pressure rises when a person is speaking, and if so should they not be asking you questions while bp is being taken in the doctors office?

A: Blood pressure goes up with talking. You should not speak while your blood pressure is being taking. Sometimes office staff forgets this fact. If you are asked a question, refrain from answering until after the measurement has been taken.
