Most Common Sources of Error in Blood Pressure Measurement Technique



Cardiac dysrhythmias
If the heart rhythm is chaotic (eg, atrial fibrillation), blood pressure measures will fluctuate as the heart rate changes. Therefore the recommendation is to take the average of more than one measurement. For slow heart rates, the speed of deflation of the cuff also needs to be reduced for a more precise appraisal of blood pressure.

It is recommended by Pickering et al4 that standing blood pressure measurements in the elderly, especially for those with diabetes, be assessed to rule out possible postural/orthostatic hypotension 姿位性低血壓. This is defined by a systolic pressure drop by more than 20 mm Hg or a diastolic pressure drop by more than 10 mm Hg while the patient stands for up to 3 minutes. The patient may or may not have complaints such as lightheadedness, dizziness, and blurred vision or the therapist may note cognitive changes.

Principles and techniques of blood pressure measurement (at rest)

Although the mercury sphygmomanometer is widely regarded as the “gold standard” for office blood pressure measurement, the ban on use of mercury devices continues to diminish their role in office and hospital settings. To date, mercury devices have largely been phased out in US hospitals. This has led to the proliferation of non-mercury devices and has changed (probably for ever) the preferable modality of blood pressure measurement in clinic and hospital settings. In this article, the basic techniques of blood pressure measurement and the technical issues associated with measurements in clinical practice are discussed. The devices currently available for hospital and clinic measurements and their important sources of error are presented. Practical advice is given on how the different devices and measurement techniques should be used. Blood pressure measurements in different circumstances and in special populations such as infants, children, pregnant women, elderly persons, and obese subjects are discussed.
Keywords: blood pressure measurement, self-monitoring, ambulatory blood pressure monitoring
