Blood Pressure Cuffs
Numed offer blood pressure cuffs in a wide range of sizes. Our BP cuffs are for the IEM Mobil-O-Graph 24 Hour Ambulatory Blood Pressure Monitor (ABPM) and for use with the WatchBP HOME and O3 ABPM devices. All of our cuffs are high quality and CE approved.
We have a large variety of sizes that will fit the majority of arm circumferences from extra small, right through to extra large adult. Our IEM Mobil-O-Graph Extra Large Cuff is suitable for arm size 38cm - 55cm. We also offer smaller cuffs such as the Microlife WatchBP Home Cuff - Small for arm sizes that are 17-22cm.
How do I determine which blood pressure cuff size to use for the patient?
According to Livestrong, in order to gain an accurate reading, blood pressure cuffs should be the correct size for the patient’s arm. A blood pressure cuff that is too small could give an inaccurately high reading, or a cuff that is too big, could give a reading that’s too low.
For each of our IEM, GE Carescape,and SunTech blood pressure cuffs, we list the suitable arm circumference to use them on.
For example, the IEM Mobil-O-Graph Blood Pressure Cuff (Extra Small) is designed to fit arm circumferences between 14 - 20 cm. The GE Carescape V100 DuraCuf Blood Pressure Cuff with Dinaclick Connector - Adult is suitable for arm size 23cm - 33cm.
Why are disposable sleeves for blood pressure cuffs necessary?
Disposable blood pressure cuffs reduce the risk of infection. The cuffs are for one-use only and provide the same level of comfort and accuracy as regular blood pressure cuffs but can be disposed of when the session with each patient has ended. This helps to reduce the risk of cross-infection from contaminated accessories.
