Taking Blood Pressure

Video Rating: 4 / 5


  1. These videos are very educative really dragging me into health carrier. I
    love these videos because they making my dream true. 

  2. very informative!

  3. Should not the patient be sitting in a chair with a back rest and arm rest
    and feet flat on the floor????? I would not want these people taking my
    blood pressure. This ignorance happens way to often.

  4. Taking blood pressure excellent video very clear and simple

  5. Ahh you can’t hear the hr with your stethoscope until there is pressure in
    the Bp cuff

  6. helped me alot thank you for explaning well

  7. Once you get good enough at doing this and basically knowing where your
    client’s #’s fall, you can actually listen to the beat on the way up and
    sort of know where you will hear the systolic, and then you go to 30 mm
    above that and slowly let it down until you hear the very first one. Down
    to the diastolic, you listen to the last one you hear and slowly let it out
    until 20mm goes by. That way you can be sure you have the absolute correct
    B/P reading. I am a licensed nurse. This is how I do it.

  8. according to the American Heart Association, it is the bell that you want
    to use, since it is used for detecting low frequency sounds. Blood in the
    arteries makes low pressure sounds. The diaphragm is used to detect high
    frequency sounds, thus although the diaphragm can be used, it is better to
    first attempt using the way the video shows

  9. the most helpful video i have seen after four hours! good job!

  10. Good video on taking blood pressure. If it is high then one should use
    natural remedies instead of pills.

  11. i know how to take blood pressure because I read my blood pressure book
    tells me how to use the blood pressure measurer.

  12. the stethescope has 2 sides….the diaphagm side, used for detecting high
    frequency sounds; and the bell side, used for detecting low frequency
    sounds….because pulse sounds during partial occlusion, i.e when the
    sphygmomonometer is inflated, are low frequency, then the bell is used,
    that is why the video shows them using the “reverse” side of the stethescope

  13. Pretty good!

  14. thumbs up for sticking to point

  15. they twist to accommodate the angle. it may not be comfortable unless you
    manually turn the tubes, but it doesn’t affect the sound travel. good

  16. Are you supposed to count the Diastolic pressure as it FIRST starts to
    fade, or once it has completely faded?

  17. Hmm It’s a nice video, but I don’t see this to be totally accurate to be
    honest. They should locate the radial artery and begin inflating up to +20
    to 30mmHg after the pulse disappears NOT until 160mmHg. Besides that,
    stethoscope shouldn’t be placed beneath the sphyngomanometer.

  18. very helpful than any other related videos…good job guys!!

  19. I believe that this way is going to be obsolete one day as the reading is
    false because too close to the heart There is a truer way of getting a
    correct reading It will be only available in Heart surgeries and Hospitals
    as it cost somewhere in the $ 7000 range per unit making it too expensive
    for local clinic’s

  20. Great vid. Arm should be resting at heart level (propped up on a desk or
    pillow) rather than held up right? Was taught that would affect the actual

  21. Proper technique is to palpate the brachial artery and palpate while
    inflating cuff, once you can no longer feel brachial pulse, inflate cuff
    another 20-30mmHg and then begin to listen for systolic. The cuff should be
    placed about 1″ above the brachial pulse and the stethoscope and the cuff
    should not be in contact! The arm should be at heart level. Patient should
    always be seated with back supported, two feet on the floor, and no

  22. nice explanation

  23. very informative!

  24. The current accepted “normal reading” is 120/80 or less, so they are
    updated. Readings over 121/81 is considered pre hypertensive stage and
    140/90 or higher is definitely “high blood pressure”

  25. this actually helped me, as oppse to others
