Specializes in Cardiology

Manual: A manual BP cuff when properly used is quite precise and less subject to potential errors related to if the machine "hears" the sounds correctly. Also, in certain medical conditions, differences in the presence or absence of blood pressure sounds with breathing in or out can be quite important.
