Skills Blood Pressure Measurement
Taking a patient's blood pressure is a necessary part of our patient care. The blood pressure provides us the ability to treat and trend our patients as long as it's taken accurately. Auscultation and palpation are two of the most common methods used. However, there are a number of factors we should keep in mind so that our readings are accurate. The arm must be placed at heart level. Cuff size is based on a limb size, so measure the cuff appropriately. Place the cuff over the brachial artery, keeping the.
Bottom of the cuff one to one half inches above the bend in the elbow. Insert the stethoscope in your ears with ear pieces pointing slightly forward. Gently tap on the diaphragm to assure the stethoscope is positioned correctly. Palpate the brachial artery and place the bell of the stethoscope over the brachial artery. Palpate or auscultate the brachial artery while inflating the cuff to 30 millimeters of mercury above the loss of the pulse. Deflate the cuff at a rate of two to three millimeters per mercury per second. Too fast or too slow of a deflation results in missing.
Sounds and inaccurate readings. The systolic pressure is recorded when you hear at least two consecutive sounds and the diastolic pressure is recorded when the sound becomes muffled. The arm must be placed at heart level. Cuff size is based on a limb size, so measure the cuff appropriately. Palpate the brachial artery and place the cuff over the brachial artery, keeping the bottom of the cuff one to one and a half inches above the bend in the elbow. Palpate the brachial or radial artery while inflating the cuff to 30 millimeters of mercury above.
How to Take Blood Pressure Interpreting Blood Pressure Readings
Now that you've taken your blood pressure, and gone through all those steps, what do these numbers mean. If you actually do have high blood pressure, or low blood pressure, you can refer back to the What is blood pressure, and how does it relate to my life tutorial, and in that tutorial we go through the Joint National Committee guidelines on what certain numbers mean in terms of high blood pressure, and normal blood pressure. What I would also say is that if you do have an elevated find, either on the systolic or the diastolic, you.
How to Take Blood Pressure How to Take Blood Pressure
Okay so now we got the blood pressure cuff inflated fully. And there's no longer a pulse coming through that brachael artery. Now you want to slowly open up the dial, so that the blood pressure is, the millimeters of mercury is falling around 2 millimeters of mercury per second. And when you hear that first beat, that is your systolic pressure, and then continue deflating at 2 millimeters of mercury until you no longer hear that beat, and that is your diastolic pressure. So the systolic pressure is the pressure on top, and the diastolic.
Auscultated Blood Pressure
This is how you auscultate for a blood pressure. First have your patient in a seated position, locate the brachial pulse. Expose the arm and put the blood pressure cuff with the arrow directly over the brachial artery. Take up as much slack as you can. You want to close off the valve by going to the right. Using your stethoscope start in the middle of the antecubital fossa rotate it towards the middle. Do not place your thumb on here just your finger. You will not hear anything at first. What you want to do is we want to start putting.
Air into the cuff until the point where you can hear the pulse, we will keep going until the pulse goes away then we'll add about 2030 mm of mercury beyond the point where we can hear. So as I inflate, I can hear, I can hear, it's gone away, I'm going to add about 2030 more. Slowly I'm going to allow the air to come out, at the point where I hear a pulse coming back is my systolic. At the point where is disappears is my diastolic. And the procedure.

To was a gentleman in his 50s who had high blood pressure and he was very motivated to bring it down, and what we did was by weekly treatments for quite a few months then we brought it down to a much more normal range. We also did Chinese herbs and he was very, very, very compliant and devoted to his part of the treatment. He changed his lifestyle. He began exercising, eliminated alcohol and caffeine, and took his herbs. And six years later, I believe, his blood pressure is still maintaining in a normal level, and his quality.
How to Take Blood Pressure How Activity Affects Blood Pressure
Hi, I am Doctor Terranella and we want to demonstrate some of the changes in blood pressure that occur with activity. So, we took Bob's blood pressure earlier, it was around one hundred and twenty over eighty, and now we are going to have him exercise, and take his blood pressure again and see how those changes occur. Then in the next segment we are going to talk about a little bit of the physiology behind how that blood pressure is changing. So, we just took Bob to his Target Heart Rate, and we saw that he did some exercise and now.
