Why a Doctor should check Blood Pressure in both Arms?

Your blood pressure offers an important glimpse into your health, but you could get even more clues by making a small change when you get it checked. Ask to have your blood pressure taken in both arms, not just one. Healthy people can have slightly different numbers between arms, but a substantial difference in the readings could signal a blockage or an abnormality, said Dr. Sharonne Hayes, director of the Women's Heart Clinic at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota.
