Measurement Modes

Chapter 15 - Non-invasive Blood Pressure Monitoring
Three modes of non-invasive blood pressure measurement are available:
Manual
The monitor executes a measurement on demand. This is the
preferred method.
Automatic
The monitor continually repeats measurements. You can adjust the
time period between measurements from two to 60 minutes.
Stat
The monitor executes a rapid series of measurements over a five
minute period. Do not use stat mode unless your patient is
supervised.
Unless you make a subsequent measurement, the monitor displays the
most recent measurement for up to one hour.
If possible, avoid measuring during contractions because the
measurement:
May not give a reading that is truly representative of the patient's
normal blood pressure.
May cause additional stress for the patient.
