Bremed Professional Aneroid Sphygmomanometer (BD2700)
Sphygmomanometer for use in low light conditions.This Sphygmomanometer is completely automatic with advanced digital system. It is widely applicable to note the blood pressure and pulse rate.
- Built to EN 1060-1/2 standards.
- Measurement range 0-300 mmHg.
- Reliability is 5 mmHg.
- Adult-size cuff with circumference of 24 to 36 cm.
Position the cuff perferably on the left arm.bearing in mind that the bottom edge must be just above elbow-height. The adhesive fastener must be facing outwards and the connection point for the tubes must be pointing downwards. Wind the cuff securely around the arm and match up the two adhesive flaps.
Attach the ear-pieces of the phonendoscope to the ears. Hold the pump in the right and close the screw valve. You can now commence measuring.
Inflate the cuff with the pump, checking the gauge as you do so; it is advisable to inflate the cuff to a pressure some 20-30 mmHg higher than the estimated blood pressure.
Slightly loosen the screw operated valve which the right hand and let the air pressure in the cuff decrease slowly. Checking the gauge as you do so.
When the heart beat once again becomes audible, read off the value shown on the gauge which will correspond to the systolic or maximum blood pressure.
As the air pressure is further reduced, the sound of the heart beat will again disappear. The value recorded at the instant the heart rate is no longer audible gives the diastolic or minimum pressure.
If in doubt repeat the operation after an interlude of at least 10-15 minutes.
The blood pressure must be measured with the patient settled and the left arm extended on a flat surface such as a table. If the physician so wishes, the blood pressure can be measured with the patient lying down and the left arm slightly bent on the same side of the body.
The data must always be analysed by a qualified physician.
The blood pressure varies considerably both on a daily basis and on an annual basis. These variations are even more pronounced in hypertensive patients.
The appliance should be checked at least efery two years. The instruments must be recalibrated after repairs or maintenance.
The cuff can be cleaned with a damp cloth, as and when required.
