My husband who is a non-medical person is now going to try and take my blood pressure. He's a little bit nervous. You can tell.

I don't know what I'm doing.

Okay, so remember what we said, find the brachial artery ... can you feel it?

No.

No? I have no heart.

You have no heart, so ... yeah. Okay, I've got it. So I've lined that one up.

Yup. Perfect.

And then I put this one up here.

That's it. All right.

Okay, so .... can I just pump it up to 140, and go from there?

Try and estimate my systolic, so feel my radial ... that's where it should be. Do you feel it?

Yup. So closed toward me.

So now, do you want to do that with your left hand, or your right hand?

Right.

And you're holding it the wrong way around. Turn it around.

Like this?

That's it.

Closed ...

And like that.

Okay.

Closed towards you.

Whoops. Closed.

It was opened!

It was opened!

Still feel my pulse?

Yup.

Ooh, it's a bit high. And then release, and then the first time you feel the pulse again-

Yeah. It was about 110.

110, okay. Release it.

Release.

All right, now you're going to do it. You're going to pump it up to ...

We're going to pump it up to 130.

Yup.

Cool. All right. So, put this in.

And you popped it in the right way? Yes, you have.

Yeah, it's got the right way. Okay, and then I saw you do ...

You don't have to, but I think I did, because it was just easier to hold it.

You might not hear it.

No?

So feel it, and put it on top of it. Feel it?

Okay.

Put it on top.

Yeah.

And now-

Are you sure?

Yeah. So you want to hold that with your right ...

It's just very confusing. Okay, so towards me, closed. And we're going to go to 130.

And release slowly.

Release slowly. So it's 120, 120 over 70.

I have a heart. That's great!

That's it, she has a heart.

Good, can you release the pressure? Don't forget to release the pressure.

Yes. There you go. I've released the pressure.

My arm's falling off.

Well done. So, now, if my husband, who is a non-medical person, can learn from that little video on how to make a blood pressure, so can you.

See you guys.
