I am looking for a portable instrument that can be used to determine the "cuff pressure" of automatic blood pressure sphygmomanometers. I noted a large disparity between the results (systolic/diastolic) of an automatic sphygmomanometer and that of a requested manually operated sphygmomanometer. I questioned the physician about the exceptionally high values of the automatic device and he stated "the pressure is too high!"
The physicians have no way to adjust the cuff pressure of the automatic machines and I want to find out just how high some of them are going. During my follow-up inquiries, users have stated they have had tests where the cuff pressure was quite painful.
