Manual Blood Pressure Cuffs from Extend-ITs.com™.
Blood pressure cuffs, also know by their big medical name "sphygmomanometer" fit around your upper arm. They contain a inflatable bladder which is inflated and used with a stethoscope to measure your blood pressure.
While the manual blood pressure measurement process is a bit more difficult to master than that required to use an automatic blood pressure monitor, the manual blood pressure cuff and stethoscope method remains the gold standard for making clinically accurate blood pressure measurements.
Extend-ITs.com™ has blood pressure cuffs in several sizes including some of the very largest to make regular monitoring your blood easy and accurate.
Important Note: Before you begin, make sure that you select the correct size blood pressure cuff for your arm or for the arm person whose blood pressure you will be measuring. You can measure arm size easily using any flexible tape measure. Having the wrong size cuff, either too large or too small, can result in significantly inaccurate readings - a common problem that can lead to misdiagnosis of elevated blood pressure. According to the American Heart Association, here are the arm sizes for standard blood pressure cuffs:
Unfortunately, while the American Heart Association makes recommendations as to blood pressure cuff size and nomenclature, there is no consistency between manufacturers. Some manufacturers call a "Large Adult" cuff an "XL" or "Extra Large" cuff and some call an "Extra Extra Large" cuff a "XXL" or "Thigh Cuff". Also, there is some overlap between the cuff sizes and in the case of borderline measurements the larger cuff is usually recommended. It can be confusing. Forget the manufacturer's descriptions - ALWAYS measure the arm and then check the actual size of the cuff you are buying to make sure it will properly fit that arm. All Extend-ITs.com™ BP Cuffs include the recommended arm size range in both inches and millimeters so you can choose the best cuff for you or the person whose blood pressure you will be measuring.
