The Primary Characteristics of Non Invasive Blood Pressure Monitor
A non invasive blood pressure monitor is much used in medical practice. This device is used in healthcare and medical centers. Patients who have healthcare problems that are connected with blood pressure always use this device to measure their blood pressure. This device is not used under home conditions for a number of reasons: the prices for a device are rather high and not all people can afford buying this device; the instructions are rather complicated and, as a result, professionals study the instructions very carefully to use the device appropriately; the results that are shown by the device cannot be easily evaluated and interpreted by ordinary people.
Regardless of the fact that the device shows the results on the screen of the monitor, people should be aware of the minimum and maximum blood pressure rates to understand whether their results are within a norm or whether they are above or below a norm. More than that, as soon as people get the results, appropriate medical treatment should be applied. People are not recommended to choose medications on their own or on the request of their acquaintances, as these medications can cause severe complications. Only physicians who have examined patients have the right to prescribe appropriate medications. Physicians often use the device to get to know whether patients are ready for an operation. As a rule, people with too low blood pressure cannot be operated. Therefore, as soon as physicians get the results, they can take measures to prepare patients for an operation.
How to use a non invasive glucose monitor?
A non invasive glucose monitor cuff should be placed on the upper arm. The cuff of a non invasive medical device produces a direct impact on the interpretation of the results. Too small cuffs lead to falsely high readings, while too large readings lead to incorrect low readings. The width of the cuff should be at least 40% of the arm circumference. There are a lot of patient-related complications that are often associated with using non invasive medical devices. The most common complications are the following ones: skin compression, tissue compression, skin irritation and reddening, and skin bruising. In case patients notice some of these symptoms, they should turn to a specialist to avoid further complications. Patients are not recommended to use the medical device too often because frequent determination of blood pressure can cause venous pooling or even congestion. In case these complications are observed, immediate medical intrusion is required. In case the required medical help is not provided on time or is not provided at all, venous pooling can cause further complications, such as, for example, nerve damage or tissue ischemia.
There are a number of cases when blood pressure can be determined falsely with the help of a non invasive blood pressure monitor, which can lead to negative consequences or cause the worsening of patient outcomes. Irregular cardiac rhythms or too rapid rhythms prevent accurate determination of blood pressure. The work of many non invasive medical devices is based on oscillometric technologies and, as a result, the work of the medical device is dependent on the regularity of cardiac rhythms. Therefore, physicians should take all these peculiarities into consideration to use a non invasive glucose monitor correctly. Physicians should remember that the correct use of this technological device produces a direct impact on medical treatment and improved patient outcomes.
