Bariatric Patients have special needs
Often the upper arm of a bariatric patient is conical or V-shaped. This inhibits the smooth application of a standard (rectangular) blood pressure cuff because they do not conform to the conical shape of the limb. A gap at the bottom of the cuff near the elbow is a common occurrence and is a clear indication of a misapplied cuff.
The Baum Bariatric Inflation System is curved, easy to apply and conforms naturally to a conical limb. The result is correct application of the cuff and even compression of the artery.
