How can a blood pressure reading be inaccurate?
Taking a blood pressure measurement is one of the most common practices in the medical field, and can be at home, as well. A typical manual blood pressure unit consists of four main parts: an inflatable cuff attached by rubber tubing to a hollow rubber bulb, a gauge with millimeter markings, and an air release valve. When using a BP system, it is important to realize that some of these parts may wear out over time, especially in a busy hospital setting. The inflation bladder may lose its shape if it has been over-inflated, holes could develop in the tubing, the cuff could get torn, etc. Even the tiniest leak in your deflation valve can throw off a measurement.
Since each individual component of the unit plays such a large part in accurately measuring blood pressure, take care of your blood pressure systems and have them calibrated and replace old or damaged parts as needed. Many products, such as these valves are available in bulk, so that you can service more than one at a time. Click here to view other blood pressure system replacement parts.
