Elevated blood pressure can indicate a susceptibility to heart attack and stroke, as well as being an indicator of numerous other diseases. Hypertension is also a complicating factor in many diseases and lifestyle changes such as diabetes and pregnancy. Due to these factors, blood pressure is automatically taken from the patient as soon as he enters the office or hospital. By having this information on his file, it can create a base against which to determine if future results are normal or abnormal. This makes blood pressure monitors invaluable tools for the doctor's office.

 

One of the first things that those going through medical or nursing school learn is how to use an aneroid blood pressure monitors. By the time that these professionals see patients, they are so adept at the use of the aneroid model, that it is the best option for use in the physician's office, but often a patient will need to find a monitor for use at home to do a daily test. For hypertensive patients, strict control must be taken to ensure that their medications are effective. Untrained lay people would be more likely to find digital blood pressure monitors to be more useful to them. The likelihood of human error in the measurement is reduced.

 

One of the two types of blood pressure monitors is best suited for the physician's office, under the use of trained professionals. This is the aneroid blood pressure monitors. The nurse or doctor's skill in the use of this device is the determining factor in its accuracy. Many physicians prefer these models to digital digital blood pressure monitors since they are cheaper, and in the hands of a competent medical practitioner, more accurate. Some important features of the aneroid blood pressure monitors are the visibility of the dial and the size of the cuff. Being able to easily read the dial ensures that the data gathered is correct, and reduces time wasted from having to take repeated readings. The cuff size plays an important role in the accuracy of the data. Children and obese patients will need smaller or larger cuffs to ensure that the cuff will fit properly. Physicians should be ready with cuffs of various sizes to accommodate all patients they might see in their offices.

 

The other type of blood pressure monitors is the digital version. These are much easier for patients to use if they have to take daily measurements. Unfortunately, the results are more easily skewed than with an aneroid monitor. Body movement and an elevated heart rate can lead to faulty data given from these units, but the goal of these machines is to gather data for the long term trend in blood pressure readings, rather than a single pinpoint reading. Quality digital blood pressure monitors machines should be easy for the patient to use, with automatic inflation of the cuff, a cuff that fits the patient, and a clear digital display that also has an error message in case of a mistake made. Although digital units are more expensive, they are the best option for patients using the blood pressure monitors are home on a daily basis due to their facile nature.

 

No matter the type of blood pressure monitors used, the most important aspect for any practitioner to remember is that the data garnered from these units gives the trend over time of the patient's blood pressure, rather than relying upon a single reading.
