laser level and measuring device choosing a blood pressure monitor by victor e. battles, m.d.
When choosing a blood pressure monitor, the accuracy of the device should be the most important consideration.Secondly, the reliability of the readings should be considered.Third, the ease of use of the device should be considered.Accuracy refers to the degree to which the obtained blood pressure reading actually reflects the true pressure within the artery at the time of the reading.Reliable, refers to the extent to which the mean arterial blood pressure is reflected within 24-An hour.The technique by which the individual performs the measurement, the attributes of the measuring device and the arm selection are the main variables that determine the accuracy.The frequency of the readings, the recording of the readings, and the understanding of many factors affecting blood pressure are the main variables that determine the reliability of the readings.One of the most common reasons for inaccurate reading is that the positioning of the arm and heart is incorrect when reading.If the reading is carried out with the arm hanging below the level of the heart, then the reading may be much higher than the real pressure, and if the position of the arm is higher than the height of the heart, the reading may be very low.By the way, if the arm does not have a support of a fixed structure, such as a bracket or someone else, if someone else is reading, but is kept in the opposite position of gravity by the person who is reading, some degree of isometric exercise is being performed, which may have an impact on reading.If achieving correct arm positioning is a problem, a wrist monitor using Omron's patented advanced positioning sensor technology is a possible solution.The device will alert you with a characteristic beep signal, and will not start reading at all if the arm position is incorrect.It allows you to read while sitting and lying, as you know that the accuracy of reading will not be compromised by improper position of the arm.Since the sitting position reading is performed on the elbow-bent arm, and does not perform hand support for long movements such as the side arm during reading.Another very common reason for ineffective blood pressure readings is that the cuff size associated with the circumference of the upper arm is incorrect.In general, if the cuff is too small relative to the circumference of the upper arm, the reading will be higher than the true arterial pressure.Conversely, if the sleeve size is too large for the perimeter of the arm, the reading will be lower than the real pressure.The cuffs for upper arm measurement have several adult sizes.The size between the manufacturers is not standardized, but the main size for utility is adult, adult and thigh.Some manufacturers also produce an oversized adult size that is somewhere between the adult size and the thigh.To ensure that the appropriate cuff size is used, the American Heart Association recommends that you measure the circumference of your upper arm and select a cuff with a specified arm circumference range, including your measurements.If your arm circumference exceeds the maximum armband available, you should consider a wrist monitor that can normally hold the Wrist ring between the ages of 13.5 cm to 21 cm or 5.25 inches to 8.5 inches.If the cuff does not swell to a high enough level before starting to deflate, then the contraction reading may be lower than the true arterial pressure.If the process of inflation and deflation is interrupted and repeated, the overall reading may be inaccurate.In order to eliminate inaccuracies related to these technical defects, an automated unit, especially one with intelligent sensing technology, is a possible solution.IntelliSense is an exclusive technology developed by Omron that allows the display to automatically inflate and deflate to the best level per user, ensuring accuracy and comfort.No adjustment required.Blood pressure reading between arms often varies by a few sometimes several points.My main arm.e.Right arm on right-Left and left in the left hand-The delivery person usually has a higher reading, which is considered to be the reading that best reflects the pressure within the body's arteries.Therefore, the arm should be the arm that reads the reading.Some blood pressure devices, especially the wrist monitor, are designed to take readings from the left arm or wrist separately, meaning that your readings may not work if you are righthanded.A possible solution to this problem, even if you leave --But the right arm has a higher reading, which will be one of the units that can be adjusted to get the reading from the desired arm or wrist.If you are visually impaired, it is difficult to read the screen of the blood pressure measuring device, and in addition to the LCD display, there are some high-quality call units that can give you Audio reading.The American Heart Association acknowledges that certain blood pressure monitoring equipment has been approved, tested and validated by the medical device Progress Association, and the British Medical Association and the international protocol for the verification of automatic blood pressure measurement equipment.The Dabl Education Trust website * and the British Association for hypertension website * provide a list of verified monitors.A particular brand or model monitor is not on the list, which means that it either passed the test or has never accepted the approval and validation test protocol, since the last list was generated in 2008, this is the case with many newer devices.Based on my experience in blood pressure monitoring, lowI. Final Price unite.$24.99-$39.Reading in the 99 range tends to be a bit unstable, while units starting from the mid $50 price range tend to be more accurate and consistent.The higher-The pricing unit is not necessarily more accurate than the medium-priced unit, but does provide some of the above benefits and the benefits described in the following paragraphs.The necessary condition for reliable blood pressure reading is at 24-The hourly cycle, which is the basis of experts in the field of hypertension, the current recommendation is to make three consecutive readings in the morning and three consecutive readings in the evening.There are monitoring machines that can do this, average readings, and allow the information to be downloaded into the attached software program installed on the PC.This information can then be submitted to your doctor for analysis and properly integrated into your treatment process.In conclusion, you should consider the various factors related to the technical, anatomical and attribute of the monitoring device, which affect the accuracy of the reading and ease of use, especially to obtain a reliable reading when choosing a blood pressure monitor.
