A pressure above 140/90 already indicates hypertension (high blood pressure) when the risk of heart disease and strokes increases. Modern electronic devices measuring blood pressure give a slightly high pressure reading compared to old, traditional tonometers with a switch. Electronic tonometers use a fundamentally different principle of pressure measurement – oscillometric (they are more sensitive due to the use of modern electronic pressure sensors) and this must be taken into account when choosing (buying) a tonometer.
