Using your blood pressure monitor
Your Lloydspharmacy blood pressure monitor is easy to use at home. Simply place the cuff on your arm â€“ ensuring that it is level with your heart â€“ then inflate it by pressing the start button and relax and wait for your results. Your blood pressure test gives you two readings:
