Sphygmomanometer wrist type and upper arm type which is good? Do you have such confusion?
For young and middle-aged people, there is no big difference between wrist and upper arm measurement, so the measurement accuracy of these two methods is the same. The biggest advantage of wrist type sphygmomanometer is that it does not need to roll up the sleeve during examination, and it is more convenient to carry. It measures the arterial blood pressure of the wrist, which can be measured anytime and anywhere, making it more convenient for patients to monitor blood pressure.
The upper arm sphygmomanometer measures the pressure of the brachial artery of the upper limb and can also measure the heart rate. The measurement results will be more accurate. However, it needs to take off its coat for measurement, and put the sensor head at the place where the arterial pulse is most obvious, so when placing it, you should touch the position of the brachial artery pulse. The wrist sphygmomanometer is a convenient sphygmomanometer for measurement, but it is only suitable for people with normal blood pressure to measure blood pressure. If they are patients with hypertension, it may not measure accurately. The arm sphygmomanometer is more accurate than the wrist sphygmomanometer, and is more suitable for patients with hypertension to measure blood pressure
Suggestion: office workers, people who often travel and people with normal blood pressure can use wrist sphygmomanometer; The upper arm sphygmomanometer is suitable for patients with common hypertension. Patients with weak pulse, low blood pressure and malignant hypertension must use the arm electronic sphygmomanometer, otherwise it is easy to cause measurement error.
Both have their own advantages and disadvantages. Patients can choose according to their own needs.
No matter what kind of sphygmomanometer is used, it must be used under the guidance of a professional doctor. After the occurrence of hypertension, they should be treated in time.
