  • Rebound effect with Blood Pressure after exercise?

    I picked up one of those handy wrist monitors so I can check my BP while exercising. Pretty handy tool actually. My BP always falls during exercise (nothing new there), but I've noticed that about 5 or 10 minutes after I'm done it takes a spike upwards to the high side, then eventually setlles back down to my normal BP of 110/80 or thereabouts.

    Is it normal to see a rise in BP after exercise, or is this some kind of rebound response due to my BP falling during exercise?

    Gee, I don't know. I hope someone who does will answer you soon. You would be the one who's different, wouldn't you?

        Tigger,

        It's an Omron Model HEM-609 Automatic Wrist Blood Pressure Monitor that I picked up at Walmart for about 60 bucks including sales tax. It doesn't supply continuous readings, but I can wear it during exercise and take my BP and heartrate by pushing a button rather than trying to deal with an arm cuff model. It stores 14 readings so I don't have to stop to write them down right away. The more expensive models have larger memories, but all I needed was to be able to store 3 at a time... before, during, and after exercise.

        To be honest I didn't shop around much as I needed one in a hurry, but I have liked this one, and the readings have been accurate when compared to the ones taken at my cardio's office.
