    Because an incorrect blood pressure reading can lead to an incorrect diagnosis. Aneroid sphygmomanometers are the most commonly used type of blood pressure cuff by healthcare professionals and the general public alike. They work by using a spring mechanism, gears, and a metal diaphragm to measure the pressure changes against the air bladder in the arm cuff. At the bottom of the dial, the gauge is an oval marking. When the air bladder is fully deflated, the needle should point directly through the middle of this oval. Even if the needle is in the oval, it could still be off. Digital blood pressure cuffs are a bit different in that they have internal diagnostic programs to calibrate themselves. Most models have an alert or alarm to let you know that you need to run the calibration program. There are three general ways to calibrate an aneroid blood pressure cuff that range from quick zeroing to sending the sphygmomanometer to an accredited lab. This is the quick and easy way to check the calibration of your aneroid sphygmomanometer. First, make sure the bladder is fully deflated when you check the position of the needle on the gauge. Next, you need to return the needle to zero. You can do this by taking a pair of pliers and turning the nozzle on the dial gauge. The nozzle rotates and moves the needle either up or down. Then, using a manometer of known accuracy, most likely a mercury sphygmomanometer, take the blood pressure reading again. Hg of the mercury sphygmomanometer. A Y test kit can be purchased online. One of the Y tubes attaches to a mercury sphygmomanometer and the dial gauge with the aneroid sphygmomanometer. You then pump the bulb and check the dial gauge against the mercury column. Remove the rubber tubing from the aneroid dial gauge. Sending your aneroid blood pressure cuff to an accredited testing lab is the most reliable and accurate way to calibrate your equipment. To further test the accuracy, you can check your digital blood pressure cuff against a manometer of known accuracy using the steps listed above for the aneroid sphygmomanometer. Turn on the digital blood pressure cuff. Both aneroid and digital sphygmomanometers need to be regularly calibrated and checked against manometers of known accuracy. The health and safety of patients rely upon accurate testing devices. Depending on which source you refer to, the suggestions of how often you should calibrate an aneroid sphygmomanometer range from every six months to every two years. All types of blood pressure cuffs should be calibrated at least yearly, even mercury sphygmomanometer. But for aneroid sphygmomanometers, the general recommendation is every 6 months. We have gone to the heart of the manner and detail how you can calibrate your aneroid and digital sphygmomanometers. Keep your blood pressure cuff clean, maintained, and calibrated to keep your patients healthy, safe, and happy. The NCBI web site requires JavaScript to function.

The Seventh Report of the Joint National Committee on Prevention, Detection, Evaluation, and Treatment of High Blood Pressure. The potential of mercury spillage contaminating the environment has led to the decreased use or elimination of mercury in sphygmomanometers as well as in thermometers. However, concerns regarding the accuracy of nonmercury sphygmomanometers have created new challenges for accurate BP determination. When mercury sphygmomanometers are replaced, the new equipment, including all home BP measurement devices, must be appropriately validated and checked regularly for accuracy. The accurate measurement of BP is the sine qua non for successful management. The operator should be trained and regularly retrained in the standardized technique, and the patient must be properly prepared and positioned. The auscultatory method of BP measurement should be used. Caffeine, exercise, and smoking should be avoided for at least 30 minutes prior to measurement. Measurement of BP in the standing position is indicated periodically, especially in those at risk for postural hypotension, prior to necessary drug dose or adding a drug, and in those who report symptoms consistent with reduced BP upon standing. At least two measurements should be made and the average recorded. Clinicians should provide to patients, verbally and in writing, their specific BP numbers and the BP goal of their treatment. Recommendations for followup based on initial blood pressure measurements for adults without acute end organ damage. BP during daily activities and sleep. These devices use either a microphone to measure Korotkoff sounds or a cuff that senses arterial waves using oscillometric techniques. While office BP values have been used in the numerous studies that have established the risks associated with an elevated BP and the benefits of filexlib.
