hi I’m dr. David Hill and today we’re
going to talk about how to measure blood
pressure and children when we got to
measure anybody’s blood pressure really
there are two commonly used techniques
one that’s growing more and more popular
is an electronic device that has an
automatic blood pressure cup the device
pumps air into the cuff and then a
sensor within the device listens for the
sound of heartbeats in the vessel
usually the vessel of the arm as the
blood flow returns the computer listens
for those sounds and calculates an
appropriate blood pressure this system
works really really well and people who
have a good normal steady heartbeat in
people who don’t have any abnormalities
of their blood vessels or heart
abnormalities and it gives a good
general picture what the blood pressure
is you can buy similar systems for the
home these are automatic blood pressure
cuffs to be used in the home the other
way that we do it which you’d consider
the old-fashioned way is a doctor nurse
or other trained professional like an
EMT uses a manual cuff with a little air
bulb does the same thing you pump air
into the cuff around the arm but instead
of using a computer to hear the sound
use a stethoscope again you’re listening
for the sound of blood flow returning to
the artery in the arm that’s been
squeezed off by the air this is an
important method to use when the blood
pressure is in doubt or when there’s
some sort of abnormality or irregularity
in the heartbeat or problem with the
heart that makes blood flow sometimes a
little bit irregular so if I’m worried
about a blood pressure and a child for
some reason I’ll often recheck it myself
rather than just trusting the Machine
now there are a few important rules
about taking blood pressure right the
most important is to get a cuff that’s
the right size you’ll see on all blood
pressure cuffs that they’re marked with
a little white line and when you fasten
them one side of the cuff ought to fold
within the zone that’s marked by the
white line a cuff that’s too large for
an arm will give a reading that’s
artificially low a cuff that’s too small
for an arm you guessed it will read too
I see I’m sure the cuff is the right
size the other thing you want is to make
sure that the arm is in the correct
position the vessel in the arm should be
at the level of the heart now a baby
who’s lying on a table that’s kind of
automatic but if somebody’s sitting or
standing you want to support the arm up
a little bit so it’s not just lying at
the side having it down too far may
artificially elevate the blood pressure
reading that you get you don’t want the
patient tensing the muscle and holding
your arm up you want to support it
yourself for heaven on a surface where
its resting easily you’ll also obviously
like your patient in a calm comfortable
situation if they’re upset or in pain
it’s going to raise the blood pressure
and if what you want to know is with the
blood pressure normally is you’re not
going to find that out that way so
talking about how to check blood
pressure and a child I’m dr. David Hill
