All physical activity, excitement, stress, eating, drinking, smoking, body posture and many other activities or factors (including taking a blood pressure measurement) will influence blood pressure value. Because of this, it is mostly unusual to obtain identical multiple blood pressure readings. Blood pressure fluctuates continually, day and night. The highest value usually appears in the daytime and lowest one usually at midnight. Typically, the value begins to increase at around 3:00AM, and reaches to highest level in the daytime while most people are awake and active. Considering the above information, it is recommended that you measure your blood pressure at approximately the same time each day. Too frequent measurements may cause injury due to blood flow interference, please always relax a minimum of 1 to 1.5 minutes between measurements to allow the blood circulation in your arm to recover. It is rare that you obtain identical blood pressure readings each time.
