How to measure systolic blood pressure without the use of any equipment?

09-May-2016 / 8:06 am
Kerala Updates: Step 1: Run the index and middle fingers of your right hand along the left hand, the left hand palm facing upward. Step 2: Try and find the radial pulse which is below the thumb and little above the wrist. Step 3: Move your fingers along this area to feel the radial pulse. Step 4: If you can feel the radial pulse without any difficulty, then your systolic blood pressure is at least 80 mmHg. Step 5: If you can feel the radial pulse more prominently, then your systolic blood pressure is above 80 mmHg. Step 6: If you can only feel a faint radial pulse, then your systolic blood pressure is below 80. This is due to the fact that since the radial pulse is much smaller than the femoral artery, the blood pressure has to be at least 80 mmHg for a pulse to reach it. Step 7: For a more accurate reading of your systolic and diastolic blood pressure, you need to use a blood pressure monitoring machine
