Healthcare professionals understand that the patient's arm should be at heart level during blood pressure reading. However, most do not implement this into practice. This common error could lead to the patient's blood pressure results being altered by up to 35 mmHg systolic and 15mmHg diastolic which could be the difference between a patient being diagnosed as hypertensive, normotensive or hypotensive.
Healthy patients could be misdiagnosed with hypotension or hypertension and subsequently treated for vascular conditions that do not exist. Medicating non-existent conditions could lead to serious issues later down the line.
The Accurest solves this complication by providing an attachable and height adjustable platform to rest the patient's arm during the reading.
