Why We Recommend Blood Pressure Monitor or Mercury Sphygmomanometer?

Guidelines for the prevention and treatment of hypertension: It is recommended to use a proven upper arm medical electronic sphygmomanometer, and the mercury column sphygmomanometer will be phased out;

Although the auscultation method of blood pressure measurement has been used clinically for more than 100 years, it will withdraw from the stage of history due to the environmental pollution of mercury (the mercury thermometer will disappear with it); in fact, the oscillometric method is relative to the mercury sphygmomanometer. In addition to being convenient to use and reducing environmental pollution, electronic sphygmomanometer also has the following advantages:

Reduce or eliminate mantissa preference

Because the mantissa of a desktop mercury sphygmomanometer can only record even values, the mantissa preference is to like to record the blood pressure reading as the last 0 or 5 mmHg. In clinical practice, the incidence of this tail number preference is not low, and it directly leads to the misdiagnosis or missed diagnosis of hypertension. Using an oscillometric electronic sphygmomanometer with automatic transmission function can reduce and eliminate the mantissa preference.

Simultaneous measurement of multiple parts

Due to the difference in blood pressure between arms, ankle-brachial blood pressure index has the value of diagnosing peripheral vascular disease and predicting prognosis. Clinically, it is often necessary to evaluate the difference in blood pressure between arms and limbs. For this reason, the blood pressure of different limbs should be measured simultaneously to reduce human errors and eliminate differences caused by blood pressure fluctuations at different times and different mental states.

Self-service blood pressure measurement in the office

The self-service blood pressure measurement in the office is relative to the blood pressure in the manual office. It is an improved instrument based on the oscillometric electronic sphygmomanometer. At first, the doctor placed a cuff for the patient to guide the blood pressure measurement and measure the blood pressure once. After verifying that all conditions are normal, leave, and leave the patient alone in the consulting room. Without the presence of medical staff, the instrument automatically measures the blood pressure 3 times, and finally displays the average of the 3 blood pressures. Self-service blood pressure measurement in the clinic can reduce the occurrence and overtreatment of white coat hypertension.

An oscillometric electronic sphygmomanometer with night start function

An auxiliary starting device is added to the oscillometric electronic sphygmomanometer to make it have a memory function and achieve a function similar to an ambulatory sphygmomanometer. Studies have shown that night blood pressure is more predictive of target organ damage in hypertension than day blood pressure. The oscillometric electronic sphygmomanometer can also be used in places where other non-invasive blood pressure measurement methods cannot be used (such as the deep sea, high altitude, etc.). The oscillometric electronic sphygmomanometer is also very effective for patients who cannot be accurately identified by the offset sound. At present, it is believed that home blood pressure measurement is beneficial to improve the rate of hypertension control, and domestic and foreign guidelines recommend the use of oscillometric electronic sphygmomanometers to measure home blood pressure.

How many commonly used electronic blood pressure monitors?

There are currently two types of sphygmomanometers, “deflated” and “inflatable”
• The deflation type is to complete the blood pressure measurement during the deflation of the cuff.
Vented oscillometric electronic sphygmomanometers are currently used by most oscillographic electronic sphygmomanometers. The blood pressure measurement process is similar to the mercury auscultation method. The instrument automatically sets the inflation pressure in advance: 160~180 mmHg for adults; 120~160 mmHg for children; 70~120 mmHg for newborns. When the initial pressure is not enough to measure blood pressure, the system will automatically recognize and inflate to a higher pressure again. The intelligent oscillometric electronic sphygmomanometer can automatically adjust the initial inflation pressure. Once the cuff reaches a satisfactory pressure, the exhaust valve opens and the cuff pressure drops. There are two types of exhaust valve opening, phase and continuous opening.
• Inflatable type is to complete the blood pressure measurement during the cuff inflation process. The inflatable oscillometric electronic sphygmomanometer measures blood pressure during the cuff inflation process. During the cuff inflation process, the pressure felt by the pressure sensor increases continuously. At this time, the pulse impulse can be detected from the data collected by the pressure sensor. This kind of sphygmomanometer measures blood pressure in a short time, has low power consumption, is not compressed by blood vessels, and does not need to set a pre-inflation pressure.
