Blood Pressure Cuff

Important Need-to-Knows

This is applicable to both manual and automatic blood pressure monitors. It is best to contact the blood pressure monitor manufacturer directly or the company you bought it from.

Wrist blood pressure monitors often do not have replacement cuffs. The whole unit will have to be replaced.

What we commonly see with automatic blood pressure monitors are the cuff connectors are different among manufacturers. This is the part of the cuff tubing you install into blood pressure unit. Take a look at your cuff tubing connectors, and you can tell the difference too.
