pressure generated when the heart


contracts.
The 2nd Number: Diastolic pressure is
the blood pressure when the heart is
relaxed.

What is normal Blood Pressure? Buy and use a blood pressure monitor.
Compare your BP reading with the numbers on the chart above. Draw a
line from your systolic pressure to your diastolic pressure. Is the slope of
the line about the same as shown on the chart? Where do YOU fit in?
Are your blood pressure readings within the normal blood pressure
range?
Should you take anti-hypertension medication to lower your blood
pressure?
Normal human daily Blood Pressure Range can vary widely, so any single
blood pressure monitor reading is not reliable. BP monitor readings must
be taken at different times of day, to determine AVERAGE blood pressure
over time.
What is important is your AVERAGE BP, or MAP (Mean Arterial Pressure)
over time.
Or, where are those numbers sitting MOST of the time?
Normal MAP is about 93 mm of mercury.

Buy and use a wrist blood pressure monitor daily.


Graph your results, as I have above.
KNOW your risk factors.
Record your blood pressure monitor data over time, in MS Excel format.
Here is a sample from my personal
Blood Pressure Data, and Heart Rate Variability (HRV) data -

The Aubuchon Method of Heart Health Monitoring and Analysis


(Primary assumptions - Low Systolic is good, low Diastolic is good, and low Pulse rate is good.)
1. At least two measurment sessions are performed EVERY DAY.
2. At each measurement session, I take 4 readings (consistency and repeatability check - both monitor and
3. The 8 BP readings are summed in the Pressure Checksum column.
4. The 4 pulse readings are summed in the Pulse Checksum column.
5. The "Pulse delta Beats" column gives HRV - the delta between the lowest and the highest of the 4 read
Excel does not do this, I do this by eye and by hand.
6. The "Overall Heart Health Index" column gives an "OVERALL HEART HEALTH INDEX"
consisting of both BP and HRV data combined, using the formula : BP Checksum plus Pulse Checksu
by 100.
My OHHI has varied from 14 (very bad) to 10 (very good) - a value of 12 is borderline. This index is wei
BP, since it is usually considered more important than pulse rate (2 BP readings vs. 1 pulse reading). A si
reading system could be employed, but that would be inadequate for HRV sampling purposes. There is fa
variation between 4 readings than 2 readings, if there is any inconsistency in the measuring device, measu
technique, or high HRV (i.e., atrial fibrillation) is present.

Diligence
Use A Digital Blood Pressure Monitor

Buy a digital blood pressure


monitor, and use it daily.
Become aware of your blood
pressure range, and how it
varies throughout the day.
Graph your BP readings. Find
out the influence of foods, and
moods. I really like my Omron
Model HEM-608 digital wrist
blood pressure monitor. It's
getting old now, but still
performs like a champ.
Wrist blood pressure monitors
are inexpensive and accurate,
if used according to directions.
The wrist monitor must be
carefully positioned at "heart
height", to achieve accurate
results. Relax a few moments
after you sit down, before you

MOST Importantly :
Use appropriate dictionaries,
pillows, of whatever to get your
wrist level exactly even with the
nipples on men, or the same
height that an upper arm
sphygmomanometer cuff would
be, if it were being used.
Costco currently sells a newer
model digital wrist monitor, the
Omron HEM-637 for $80. It has
"A.P.S. technology", which
confirms that the monitor is at
heart level (Advanced
Positioning Sensor).
The means to easily check your
blood pressure and blood
pressure range are available.

take your reading. Don't move


or talk while measuring.

Lowering High Blood Pressure Tactics

1. AWARENESS (Use a wrist monitor frequently - the


higher your pressure, the more often you should check
it, to get it down.)
2. DESIRE - Do you want to live? Live better?
3. ACTIONS
Stop Smoking
Exercise Daily
Reduce Weight
Reduce Salt Intake
Reduce Saturated Fat
NO "hydrogenated anything"
NO TFAs! ("partially hydrogenated anything")
No Caffeine
Mild Sedation
Sufficient Rest
Don't Oversleep
Use a wrist blood pressure monitor
