This is an approximate MAP calculation.
To get a 100% accuracy you need to know CVP.
Since CVP (central venous pressure) is usually less than 10, the method mentioned here is close.
Another way I have found to get a closer MAP is to add the heart rate divided by 10. i.e. HR = 60, use the formula here and add 6 (60÷10).
Either way, when looking at MAP, aim for a higher MAP, not a lower one. This is especially helpful when in more austere environments.

So, why can’t we use this same formula to calculate the MAP at home using the SBP checking equipment? I read that MAP is more important than SBP and gives vital information regarding your health. So, I think we should be checking MAP rather than SBP.
