Blood pressure changes associated with tilting in normotensive subjects: Differences in response pattern as measured by oscillometry and auscultation

Three non-invasive instruments were used to measure blood pressure in the supine position and on tilting—a conventional and a random-zero sphygmomanometer, and an oscillometric device (Accutorr 1A). Twenty normotensives volunteered for the study. There was no statistically significant difference in systolic blood pressure and diastolic blood pressure… CONTINUE READING
