Yes the automated machines are as accurate as a nurse or doctor's manual interpertation.120/80 is normal. Your lower number (systolic) is not as importanat as the top number (diastolic) is used more when measuring risk for hypertension. Any diastolic number between 121-139 is consider prehypertension. Anything over 140 can lead to a diagnosis of hypertension. 120 is perfect. Anything lower is good too.Your blood pressure can vary a lot day to day and depending on the time of day. It's good to check it as often as possible and recognize patterns for the best result.
