My measurement device gets very varied readings

Blood pressure measurement is always only an instantaneous value, for blood pressure depends on the mental and physical state at that moment, the time of day and conditions during the measurement. You should therefore always measure it under the same conditions, i.e. try to measure it at the same time daily and rest for five minutes before measuring it. If you are repeating the measurement, you should always take a one-minute rest first. Many people, nevertheless, have greatly fluctuating blood pressure readings despite resting. In this case, measure it two or three times at intervals of one minute and work out the average of the single measurements. If you are still concerned, have your measurement device checked where you obtained it.
