Choosing the right Unimed NIBP cuff for your patients is a process that can be difficult to navigate if you have yet to do it before. In this article, we'll give some useful information about NIBF cuffs.
What is an NIBP Cuff?
An NIBP cuff is a device used to measure blood pressure and is one of the most common medical devices. It is often recommended as a first-line measurement for people with hypertension or high blood pressure.
There are several factors to consider when choosing an NIBP cuff, including the type of cuff you need, your patient's size and anatomy, and your facility's equipment. Here are five things to keep in mind when selecting an NIBP cuff:
1. Type of Cuff: There are two main types of NIBP cuffs: standard and electronic. Standard cuffs use an inflatable latex band around the arm, while electronic cuffs use an electronic sensor that registers changes in blood pressure. Both types have pros and cons; for example, electronic cuffs are more accurate but expensive.
2. Patient Size and Anatomy: The size and shape of your patient's arms will affect which type of cuff you need. If your patient has large arms or unusually shaped hands, they may not easily fit into a standard cuff. In these cases, consider an electronic cuff is necessary.
3. Facility Equipment: Some facilities do not have the technology to accurately read electronic cuffs, so standard cuffs may be the best option. If this is the case at your facility, make sure to discuss options with your healthcare team beforehand so that you choose
