Best Rest: Rest Time Before Blood Pressure Measurement Trial
“Best Rest: Rest Time Before Blood Pressure Measurement Trial”
The objectives of this study are to: 1. Determine the impact of wait time before initiating BP measurement on BP variability 2. Determine the difference in BP variability between measurements by amount of initial rest. The investigators also aim to: 1. To determine the total time required to obtain a BP measurement.
Timing of rest prior to blood pressure measurement
Each participant will have 4 sets of 3 blood pressure measurements taken. The participants will be randomized to the order in which they rest prior to each set of measurements.
