# How do I change my BP monitor from kPa to mmHg?

## How do I change my BP monitor from kPa to mmHg?

- Assuming you have already set everything else… Turn machine off.
- 1) Press and hold the set button for 8 seconds.
- Use the memory button to select the measurement unit you want in your case 0 for mmHg, and press the Set button to confirm.
- Hold the set button for 8 seconds.

### How do you convert kPa to blood pressure?

Enter a pressure in kPa below to convert it to the equivalent pressure in mmHg 0°C….kPa to mmHg Conversion Table

- 1 mmHg = 133.322 Pascals (Pa)
- 1 kPa = 1000 Pascals (Pa)
- mmHg value x 133.322 Pa = kPa value x 1000 Pa.
- mmHg value = kPa value x 7.50062.

**Do you measure blood pressure in mmHg or kPa?**

Blood pressure is measured in units of millimeters of mercury (mmHg). The readings are always given in pairs, with the upper (systolic) value first, followed by the lower (diastolic) value.

**Can blood pressure be in decimals?**

Blood pressure is an example of continuous data. Blood pressure can be measured to as many decimals as the measuring instrument allows.

## What is the normal blood pressure range?

Normal blood pressure for most adults is defined as a systolic pressure of less than 120 and a diastolic pressure of less than 80. Elevated blood pressure is defined as a systolic pressure between 120 and 129 with a diastolic pressure of less than 80.

### What is kPa reading?

1 kilopascal equals 1,000 pascals. When compared to bar unit there is 100 kPa in 1 bar which happens to be very close to the standard atmospheric pressure at sea level (101.325kPa), therefore a reading in kPa closely represents the same value as the 0 to 100 percentage scale of atmospheric pressure.

**What is kPa a measure of?**

kilopascal (kPa), one thousand times the unit of pressure and stress in the metre-kilogram-second system (the International System of Units [SI]). One pascal is a pressure of one newton per square metre, or, in SI base units, one kilogram per metre per second squared.

**How do you convert pressure to mmHg?**

The conversion calculation from inches of mercury column to millimetres of mercury column over the vacuum and atmospheric pressure range is as follows:

- 1 mmHg = 133.322 pascals (Pa)
- 1 inHg = 3386.39 pascals (Pa)
- mmHg value x 133.322 Pa = inHg value x 3386.39 Pa.
- mmHg value = inHg value x 25.4.

## Are decimals discrete or continuous?

Discrete data CANNOT have decimals. Quantitative data can be divided into two portions: discrete and continuous data.
