Blood pressure measurement 33 Part ii: Conventional blood pressure measurement OVER VIEW • Conventional blood pressure measurement is the measurement of blood pressure with a sphygmomanometer in the medical setting. • Automated oscillometric devices are replacing auscultatory measurement of blood pressure with a sphygmomanometer and stethoscope. • Mercury sphygmomanometers are being removed from clinical practice because of the international move to ban mercury from the environment but hybrid devices that do not contain mercury are now available.
Stethoscope end-piece should not touch clothing, cuff, or rubber tubes to avoid friction sounds. • Inflate cuff rapidly to about 30 mm Hg above palpated systolic pressure. • Deflate cuff at a rate of 2–3 mm Hg per pulse beat (or per second) during which the Korotkoff sounds will be heard. • Deflate cuff rapidly after all sounds disappear. • Make sure cuff is completely deflated before repeating measurement so as to avoid venous congestion of the arm. 11 Korotkoff sounds • Phase I – the first appearance of faint, repetitive, clear tapping sounds that gradually increase in intensity for at least two consecutive beats is the systolic blood pressure.
Analysis and interpretation of profiles for ambulatory blood pressure, however, need experience in the technique; this is achieved best by the doctor in charge of a service that provides ABPM. Financial considerations Using a monitor Analysis of the cost-benefit of ABPM by NICE has shown that ‘Ambulatory blood pressure measurement is the most costeffective method of confirming a diagnosis of hypertension in a Time needs to be allowed to fit the monitor and prepare the patient for the monitoring period if good results are to be obtained.
