Handy BP measuring gadgets.

That the blood pressure measuring device is called sphygmomanometer is known to almost everyone but only few people (those unfortunately frequent the hospital) know that the BP measuring gadget has changed over the years. 

The most commonly used in hospitals is welch allyn sphygmomanometer that is known for its accuracy. Since it comes with a 2 year replacement warranty, it is the most preferred one by big hospitals that is always fully packed.

Individual doctors who maintain a personal hi-tech clinic in posh localities use expensive sphygmomanometer that gives consistent readings with digital display.

My husband’s BP is always normal but still he has to undergo the diagnostic procedure more often than me with a chronic low BP score.

What a contrast!
