BP monitors  

Posted by the Writer

What the heck is a digital sphygmomanometer? Some googling later, oh, it's a blood pressure monitor. I have one at home too. But we just call it a BP monitor. They're pretty great tools though when you have geriatrics in the house. But obviously they can't tell you what specifically is wrong with them since they only help you to rule out that it isn't something to do with their blood pressure. My grandmother was hypoglycemic once and she kept complaining of dizziness. When we checked her BP, it was normal. So we knew it wasn't low blood pressure. Which meant we had to move on to the next possibility. Anyway, we brought her to the hospital and it was sorted out.
