Thread: Blood Pressure Readings and Massive Arms

  1. #1

    Default Blood Pressure Readings and Massive Arms

    Does anyone have experience or knowledge of how well the blood pressure cuff works on big guns (18 inch +). My point here is that these devices were designed (maybe not) for a different size and make-up of arm and not for solid and highly developed bicep and tricep arms.

    Comments?

    No i would get checked by a professional then check yourself and see if the readings differ.

    My doc has special cuffs for big arms as do most hospitals which work fine. Unfortunately he tells me the large cuffs are used more for fat arms then built arms..... but that is America.

    That is what I am inquiring about. I have had 3 separate professionals that cannot give me a solid answer on whether big "fat" arms provide a different reading than "muscle" arms. They all seem to have problems with compressing the cuff (air pump + bigger cuff) and getting a starting reading. All my readings are different which was the cause for concern. Not bragging but I cant go to the store and use the ones there because my arm wont fit in the cuff to verify results. Stupid problem but still important if you know what I mean. Some else has got to have experienced this (or not?)

    Quit your crying WH I'd love to have your problem.

    The ones in the stores are for up to 12 inch arms and mine are 16.5. I use them and they are consistent with my doc. I don't see why a standard type cuff wouldn't be accurate as long as it fit around your arms. The numbers can fluctuate quite a bit over a very short period of time so an average is best. Say do it 3 time in 30 minutes then average the numbers to be most accurate.
