Hypertension occurs when the systolic blood pressure is equal to/greater than 135 mmHg & the diastolic blood pressure is equal to/greater than 80 mmHg. If left uncontrolled, hypertension can cause heart attack, stroke, dementia, kidney failure, vision loss amongst the serious consequences.
Yes, you will see some differences. This is normal & can occur for many reasons. Some of the more common reasons are:
1. A person’s blood pressure varies throughout the day, so at any given moment your blood pressure can change.
2. In terms of the amount of change; there are published studies that show a given person’s blood pressure can change by up to 20 mm within a day, based on activity levels, food/drink intake, stress, etc.
3. You may have a condition known as “White Coat Hypertension.” This is a condition in which a blood person’s blood pressure rises above its usual level when it is measured in a doctor’s office or clinical setting.
4. You may have a condition known as “Masked Hypertension.” This is a situation in which a person’s blood pressure falls below its usual level when it measure in a doctor’s office or clinical setting.
So do not be alarmed when you see differences between your readings at home compared to your readings in your doctor’s office. Discuss it with your doctor to get the best overall picture of your heart health.
Monitoring blood pressure at home has been found useful in helping to monitor the effects of hypertension drugs, as well as detecting masked hypertension & symptoms that are hard to be found otherwise. For these & other reasons, medical organizations around the world now stress the importance of home blood pressure monitoring.

In terms of which type of blood pressure monitor is best for you, we recommend that you discuss this with your doctor, based on your individual needs.
Upper arm blood pressure monitors are recommended for people who buy a blood pressure monitor for the first time or people who have high blood pressure & need to control it.
All Omron blood pressure monitors are clinically proven accurate. They are clinically validated to be within the following: – Blood pressure: within +/- 3 mmHg or 2 percent – Pulse: within +/- 5 percent of reading This meets or exceeds the AAMI (Association of Medical Instrumentation) standards. To understand the accuracy levels of other manufacturer’s blood pressure monitors, you need to contact them. It is always important to investigate accuracy & ease of use before purchasing a home blood pressure monitor.
Digital monitors measure blood pressure oscillometrically rather than by auscultation. In auscultation, stethoscopes are used to take blood pressure by listening for specific heartbeat sounds which the doctor then uses to determine systolic & diastolic pressures. Oscillometric technology measures the vibration of blood traveling through the arteries & converts the movement into digital readings.
Omron digital blood pressure monitors use the oscillometric method of blood pressure measurement. An oscillometric monitor does not need a stethoscope so the monitor is simple to use.
It is also important to note that home blood pressure monitoring allows you to monitor frequently & share the results with your doctor if you desire.
Both readings are important. Systolic blood pressure measures your blood pressure during a heart contraction & the other measures blood pressure between heart contractions. Usually, more attention is given to systolic blood pressure, as it indicates a major risk factor for cardiovascular disease. For your particular situation, you should discuss both measurement results with your doctor.
1. Sit quietly for about 5 minutes with both feet flat on the floor.
2. Do not smoke, bathe, drink caffeinated drinks/alcohol or exercise 30 minutes before measurement
3. Measure at the same time every day
4. Take multiple readings & record the results using a diary or an app
The accuracy of Omron blood pressure monitor has been carefully tested & is designed for a long service life. It is generally recommended to have the unit checked every two years to ensure correct functioning & accuracy. Please consult your local Omron representative for the check.
