How to take Manual Blood Pressure


Today I will share with you a short video about my husband, who is a non-medical person, and how he learned how to take manual blood pressure.

I am sure all of us have already tried to do this with our family at one point, even going as far as asking (forcing) to practice IV insertion on them! 

We made this manual blood pressure taking revalida err-- video because of this blog:
