Manual Blood Pressure Kits from Extend-ITs.com™.
Manual blood pressure measurement kits make it convenient to get a matched set of instruments consisting of a stethoscope, blood pressure cuff and carrying case all in one convenient package. Everything you need is included.
Manual blood pressure kits come in two designs. In the "integrated" design, the stethoscope is built right into the blood pressure cuff to make setting up and making readings easier for a single operator. In the "separate" instrument design, the blood pressure cuff and stethoscope are separate instruments - this is the way your blood pressure is usually measured in your doctor's office and it is generally regarded as the most accurate way to measure blood pressure.
Extend-ITs.com™ has manual blood pressure kits in both the integrated and separate instrument designs in several sizes to make taking regular, accurate blood pressure readings easy.
Important Note: Before you begin, make sure that you select a kit with 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.
While perhaps a bit less convenient, if you need to take blood pressure readings for yourself or a family member at home you will probably obtain the most consistent and accurate readings using a clinical stethoscope and a manual sphygmomanometer with a correctly sized arm cuff.
