How an Automated BP Device Can Help Your Practice July 09 2014
Despite best training and the most opportune circumstances, it can be plain old difficult to get an accurate readings. That is why automated blood pressure devices, like the ADC E-Sphyg 2 Blood Pressure Device and the Welch Allyn Connex ProBP Blood Pressure Device have become more and more popular in recent years. Automated blood pressure devices at one time were found only in pharmacy waiting areas, but no more as there are many various sizes and styles. An automated blood pressure unit can allow medical personnel and patients to have a more meaningful interaction during the taking of patient vitals. They provide accurate, repeatable testing, and take the difficulty out of taking BP measurements. Arguably most importantly, they allow the physician to spend more time talking to the patient, and less time taking readings.
Manual blood pressure devices do have their positives. They generally cost much less than an automatic unit. They allow for a greater degree of finesse and operator discretion in the administration of the test. They don’t require retraining of medical personnel. They often take up much less space in the examination room. Manual machines certainly have their place, but if you think that an automated machine’s benefits outweigh those of a manual unit, it is a great investment in your practice.
