Good day, today I will talk about the classification of electronic blood pressure monitors.
Blood pressure monitors classification:
1.Wrist type electronic blood pressure monitor
A kind of electronic sphygmomanometer. The size of the palm, the smaller the space between the shape and the wrist, the bowl belt is made of antibacterial material, and the digital display blood pressure and pulse rate.
Because the pressure measured by the wrist sphygmomanometer is the “pulse pressure value” of the wrist artery, it is particularly suitable for most middle-aged and elderly people, especially those with high blood viscosity, poor microcirculation, and patients with vascular sclerosis. In the crowd, there will be a big difference between the average value of multiple measurements with a wrist sphygmomanometer and an upper arm sphygmomanometer-a difference of ±1·3kPa (10mmHg) or more is very common.
Therefore, for individuals who have purchased a wrist sphygmomanometer, it is recommended: Use it as a personal monitor-you can keep track of your own “blood pressure” changes at any time, but it must be clearly pointed out that what it measures is not what it is used to say. “Blood pressure value”, but “wrist pulse pressure value”.
Precautions for use
⒈ Rest for a while before the measurement to eliminate the influence of tension and fatigue on blood pressure;
⒉The arm of the examinee should be at the same height as the position of the heart;
⒊The cuff is placed flat, and the tightness is suitable for inserting two fingers;
⒋Generally, it is enough to test continuously for 2~3 times, and take the lowest value as the blood pressure data for this time.
2.Arm electronic blood pressure monitor
The measurement method is similar to the traditional mercury sphygmomanometer. It measures the brachial artery. Because the armband is placed on the upper arm, its measurement stability is better than that of a wrist sphygmomanometer. It is more suitable for older people, irregular heartbeats, and aging of peripheral blood vessels caused by diabetes. The disadvantage for patients to use is that there is no convenient wrist-type electronic sphygmomanometer.
Correct use method of arm electronic sphygmomanometer:
Sit for a few minutes, put your arm into the armband and bind it
Take measurements with bare arms or wearing only thin clothes;
The armband has a moderate binding strength, so it is better to fit a finger;
The center of the armband is at the same height as the heart;
The lower part of the armband is 1-2cm away from the elbow joint.
Press the user key to start measurement automatically
When measuring, relax the palm with the palm up;
Keep calm and relax during the measurement;
Do not speak or move your body during the measurement.
The result shows, manual shutdown or automatic shutdown
After the measurement is completed, the blood pressure value and pulse value will be displayed;
In special circumstances, an arrhythmia prompt will appear;
The data is automatically uploaded to the Boumi Zhixin health management platform;
After the measurement is completed, press any key to shut down;
If you forget to turn it off, the sphygmomanometer will automatically turn off in 60s.
3.Watch type sphygmomanometer
The watch-type sphygmomanometer is a blood pressure watch, which is the latest type of sphygmomanometer that is different from the wrist-type electronic sphygmomanometer. It is the same size as an ordinary watch, and it is worn in the same way as an ordinary watch. The body is usually located on the back of the hand. The body of the wrist electronic sphygmomanometer is usually located on the side of the palm of the hand.
4.Voice electronic sphygmomanometer
Overview: The voice electronic sphygmomanometer is based on the original electronic sphygmomanometer with a voice broadcast function, which solves the problem of the elderly who cannot see clearly and is more humane.
Well, today’s knowledge about the classification of electronic sphygmomanometers is introduced here. Next time I will continue to talk about the calibration of the blood pressure monitor.
