blood pressure measurements in youth.
The nurses that measured BP either by aneroid
sphygmomanometers or oscillometric devices were blinded to the values measured by the invasive technique, as they were recorded one second before the nurse started the inflation of the cuff.
manometer (American Diagnostic Corporation [R] E-Sphyg2 [TM], Hauppauge, NY) was used as the control modality for this study.
In order to minimize measurement error, the equipment to be used, whether aneroid
, electronic, or mercury, should be regularly inspected and calibrated.
n A digital monitor is easier to use than the aneroid
Historically, the most familiar indirect method of BP measurement is the use of the mercury or aneroid
sphygmomanometer and a stethoscope using the upper arm (Genc, Altunkan, Kilinc, & Altunkan, 2008; Netea et al., 2003a; Netea & Thien, 2004; Pickering et al., 2005).
Patients looking to do home monitoring of their blood pressure have a variety of options, ranging from an array of low-pace aneroid
monitors to a series of sophisticated digital devices such as the recently launched UA-851ANT blood pressure monitor from A&D Medical.
At most pharmacies that sell blood pressure monitors, you can select between aneroid
or digital models that take your pressure at the arm or wrist.
A Several devices are available that measure blood pressure in your upper arm, wrist or finger, including older mercury and aneroid
sphygmomanometers and newer digital monitors.
