Using a wrist blood pressure monitor

Q: Is it more accurate to use my wrist blood pressure monitor on my wrist or my forearm and why?

A: You should follow the manufacturer’s instructions on how to use your wrist blood pressure monitor. This is how you will get the most accurate reading because this is how the testing on the device was performed. Most wrist monitors are designed to take blood pressure at the crease of the wrist, not the forearm. Keep in mind, the monitor needs to be at the level of the heart for an accurate reading.
