Nothing like having to retype an entire post all over again… So much for draft saving! Anyway, not sure what’s going on with my blog migration, haven’t heard anything back lately and my new domain name justbeingjulz.com has yet to resolve. I have a bunch of stuff I need to write about and product reviews that need to go up, so I’m going to just go ahead and blog through here for now.
BTW, I made it to my first 50 blog post milestone a couple of blog posts back! Yay, go me! haha.
As you may or may not know (I think I put it on my About page, not sure now, I’ll have to check), I’m finishing out the 3rd quarter through the accelerated Medical Assistant program at WTI (Wichita east campus). They issued us the standard adult sphygmomanometer (blood pressure cuff), but I was curious and interested in trying out the larger cuff. Luckily, I found Medical Device Depot and in exchange for an honest review, they hooked me up with a complimentary one.
They were quick to ship it and it has been nothing, but a professional and courteous experience with MDD.
The product they sent is the ADC Prosphyg 775 Series Aneroid Sphygmomanometer, large adult cuff. It comes in a small faux leather professional looking zippered bag where the cuff fits in snugly. This cuff fits individuals with a larger arm circumference between 34 cm to 50 cm, whereas the standard adult fits 23 cm to 40 cm. It is made up of the same nylon material and is the same color as the standard adult size, but is both longer and wider (taller).
I took this to class with me and tested it out on my classmate who reported back to me that it was a more comfortable fit and feel than the standard size. Using this cuff was easy, the bulb was a little stiff, but I attribute that to it being still brand new. The readings that I took with it were accurate and were in line with the standard cuff. This is a great cuff to use on larger arms as it is more comfortable for them and is not as tight a fit.
*Disclaimer: This product was given to me complimentary in exchange for an honest and unbiased review. This evaluation and review is a true accounting of my unbiased opinion and experience, and is written in the same manner as if I had bought it at full-price myself, been given as a gift, or received as a sample.
If you are in the medical field, going into the medical field, or even if you just need to take your blood pressure on a regular basis, and are interested in trying this product for yourself, it is available through Medical Device Depot’s website directly. At the time of writing this post, it was on sale for $20.
