Disposable Cuff

Overview

SunTech Medical®’s color-coded disposable blood pressure cuffs come in a full range of sizes. These disposable cuffs were designed with a dedicated patient identification line to promote single patient use, help reduce the transmission of Healthcare Associated Infections (HAI), and protect your facility’s bottom line. SunTech also offers a Cuff Standardization Program to help standardize your facility on one BP connector, simplifying ordering and reducing inventory levels. This unique approach makes SunTech Medical Disposable BP Cuffs the best choice for meeting your infection control needs with exceptional value.

Features & Benefits

Product FAQs

Why is it important to use the correct size cuff on my patients?

SunTech Medical Cuffs are designed to meet the AAMI (Association for the Advancement of Medical Instrumentation) clinical standards for blood pressure cuffs. These standards were devised in order to ensure adequate pressure on the artery of the upper arm, which is necessary to produce an accurate blood pressure measurement. If a cuff is used on an arm larger than the specified range, the resulting reading will be falsely high. If a cuff is used on an arm that is smaller than the specified range, the resulting reading will be falsely low.

What is the difference between a “standard” cuff and a “long” cuff (i.e. Adult and Adult Long cuff)?

A “long” cuff has the same range indicators and bladder size as a “standard” cuff, but the actual length is longer than that of a “standard” cuff.

Show Abstract
Healthcare associated infections or HAIs, (also known as “hospital-acquired” infections or “nosocomial” infections), are bacterial infections that patients acquire while receiving treatment for other conditions within a healthcare setting.
More than 70% of the bacterial infections that cause HAIs are resistant to at least one of the drugs commonly used to treat these infections.3 The three most troublesome forms of HAIs are: Methicillinresistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA), Vancomycin-Resistant Enterococci (VRE), and Clostridium Difficile (C. diff). There is also a newly discovered bacteria called New Delhi metallo-ß-lactamase-1 (NDM-1) that has shown to be resistant to all know antibiotics at this time.6 These antibioticresistant pathogens are not only creating an important and growing threat to the public health, they are also imposing significant economic consequences on healthcare systems worldwide.
Show Abstract

Most people do not realize their blood pressure is constantly changing minute by minute in response to mood, activity, body position, etc. In fact, simple changes in your body, environment, and activities significantly impact your blood pressure and cause your blood pressure to fluctuate between 5 and 40 mmHg. It is important for medical professionals and patients to know factors that can temporarily cause significant deviations in blood pressure measurements to avoid misdiagnosis of hypertension and inappropriate prescriptions of anti-hypertension medications. Below is a list of 10 factors that can temporarily cause significant deviations in your blood pressure measurements.
