How to Use the ALPK2 Sphygmomanometer
Wrap the cuff around the upper arm with the cuff’s lower edge one inch above the elbow pit.
Lightly press the stethoscope’s bell over the brachial artery, which you can find just below the cuff’s edge. Rapidly inflate the cuff to 180mmHg. Release air from the cuff at a moderate rate (3mm/sec).
Listen with the stethoscope while observing the dial or mercury gauge. The first knocking sound (Korotkoff) is the subject’s systolic pressure. When the knocking sound disappears, that is the diastolic pressure. Record this as the systolic pressure over the diastolic pressure (e.g. 120/80).
