One of the steps it tells you was to have a proper size for the cuff which in my group we had a problem with because the cuffs that we had were a little small for the girls and to big for the guys in the group. I find it interesting that they said to double check for accuracy which I could see the benefit of this however if you are trying to get someone's blood pressure right after someone complete 15 pushes you won't get an accurate blood pressure if we check a second time.  I thought that this was important to what we learned in class because this allowed me to have an idea of what our lab was going to be. This allowed me to perform the lab efficiently and accurately. 02-17-2016 9:21pm
