Question about Walgreens Health & Beauty
Much easier to go to a store, like Walgreens and get an inexpensive ( like 15 dollars) automatic wrist cuff blood pressure monitor, that will give you accurate and quick readings of your heart rate, and blood pressure, systolic and diastolic, automatically.

Place the stethoscope ear pieces around your neck and wrap the cuff of your sphygmomanometer tightly around your upper arm. Lay the blood pressure meter of the sphygmomanometer up on the table in front of you, so that a pressure reading can be easily seen.
2 Locate the pulse of your brachial artery by tracing your finger down your bicep down toward the crook, or inside elbow, of your arm. You should find the brachial pulse about an inch or so above this crook.
3 Put the ear pieces of the stethoscope into your ears and place the the round, metal end of the stethoscope over the pulse of your brachial artery. Tuck part of the stethoscope end underneath the end of the sphygmomanometer cuff that's bordering the inside of your elbow. This will keep the stethoscope end in place while you pump the sphygmomanometer.
4 Tighten the stopcock on the sphygmomanometer bulb and squeeze the bulb of your sphygmomanometer multiple times to inflate the cuff around your upper arm. The cuff should be inflated until you've reached 180 mm of pressure. You will be able to determine how much pressure you've pumped into the sphygmomanometer cuff by reading the blood-pressure meter in front of you.
5 Release the bulb stopcock slowly and gradually. This will let the air out of the cuff, allowing you to make a blood pressure reading.
6 Note the number on the meter when you first hear your pulse through the stethoscope. Then note the number when the last pulse sound comes through the stethoscope. Record these two numbers by placing the higher number over the lower number to determine your current blood pressure
