Sphygmomanometer for Precise Blood Pressure Measurement
Sphygmomanometers are valued by many doctors for their precise measurement results. Similar to a digital blood pressure monitor, these also consist of a manometer, a tube and a blood pressure cuff. Unlike an automatic BP device, a manual blood pressure reading is typically taken by placing a stethoscope on the brachial artery to listen for the systolic pressure and diastolic pressure after physically inflating the cuff to 180 mm Hg with the hand-held bulb and steadily releasing the cuff pressure. Measuring blood pressure in this manner is known as the auscultatory method (or Riva Rocci Korotkoff). This device is exclusively available as an upper arm blood pressure monitor and cannot be used as a wrist blood pressure monitor, for example. Blood pressure measurement via the use of a sphygmomanometer and stethoscope is especially popular in professional health areas, such as in surgeries, hospitals or care facilities.
When it comes to sphygmomanometers, equally applicable to digital blood pressure monitors, it is particularly important to ensure correct cuff positioning. In order to do so, the blood pressure cuff is often marked in a specific way to indicate how the cuff would be properly positioned on the arm. Most devices are delivered standard with an adult cuff, although blood pressure cuffs are also available in paediatric (for 14-21 cm upper arm circumferences) and extra large (for an upper arm circumference over 41 cm) sizes. Furthermore, patients with latex allergies will benefit from our selection of latex-free nylon cuffs.
A Large Assortment of Sphygmomanometers
In this category, we have assembled a massive assortment of high-quality sphygmomanometers from Erka, Boso, Heine, Omron, Riester and Welch Allyn. For example, you will find the Clinicus II from Boso, which is known for having an excellent price-performance ratio and is available in 4 great colours to match your practice furniture, or you can choose the Riester R1 Shock-Proof which can withstand drops from up to 120 cm heights without breaking. If you are looking for an Aneroid sphygmomanometer, you may be interested in the Erka Switch, which is delivered with a cuff and a case.
Sphygmomanometers & Compatible Cuffs for Manual Blood Pressure Monitoring
All sphygmomanometers are delivered with a compatible cuff and some are even available in a kit with various cuff sizes. Since a manual blood pressure cuff is often reused, special hygiene accessories such as disposable protective strips are available. These strips are placed between the cuff and the patient's arm to prevent direct contact from the blood pressure cuff on the skin. This makes the blood pressure measurement particularly hygienic. Furthermore, the cuffs themselves are often easy to clean and disinfect; an additional yet necessary hygiene measure, designed to prevent infectious transmissions.
