Blood pressure measurement – OSCE guide

Blood pressure measurement – OSCE guide

Hi, my name is Simon, I’m one of the final year medical students. Can I just check your name and age, please? Yeah, my name is Andrew and I’m 25. Nice to meet you Andrew. Today, I’d like to take your blood pressure So that will entail me taking this cuff Inflating it around your arm feeling and listening to your pulse. Does that sound okay? Yeah, that’s fine It might be a little bit uncomfortable but it shouldn’t hurt. That’s right you okay for me to go ahead? Yeah, lovely You just pop your arm on the table, that’s lovely And I’m just going to feel your pulse now That completes the procedure, thank you very much Andrew. Thank you To complete the procedure I would check the blood pressure in the patient’s other arm I would then record the results in the patient’s notes

  • Barbara

    you can't hear the korotkow sounds on every patient though, especially in a loud hospital

  • Jason Ong

    Just wondering if you do need to check the BP 2-3 times, 10-15mins apart to obtain an average reading?

  • tammy x

    so was the blood pressure 138/65 bc that's what i got? correct me if I'm wrong please.

  • ankesh poonia

    I think the procedure would only be complete if the doctor had told the patient the result.

  • Eke N

    Nah, am good with dinamaps. Try checking 10 patients at the end of a busy night shift.

  • Mahesh Suskar

    Thanks & keep up the good work

  • Conor Magill

    It's 110/70 can't rely on the sound, when the needle bounces that's the systolic, when the needle stops bouncing and the sound fades that's the diastolic

  • m7mad 19

    hi why add 30 mmhg above the approximatre systolic bp

  • sadaf sadaf

    Wow, good job, this is something special for me

  • Asif Shahriar

    Thanks. Its very simple

  • Tin Man

    To be geeky about it I would presumably the cuff would have to apply more force on a big muscular arm than on a thin flabby arm. That'd mean a different reading on different people even if their blood pressure is the same. And even using the same cuff on the same arm you always get different results. It's a very crude, unreliable test in my opinion.

  • André Vieira

    Washing your hands kinda seems like you're insulting the patient implying they have dirty hands 😂

  • Robert Draxel



    I dont know i always think its rude to clean the hands infront of the patient

  • Drew Horn

    123/60. Its nearly impossible watching a video. Its way different in person.

  • dale stuart

    is this more accurate than an omeron blood pressure machine ?

  • princess Laura

    Is 171 over 95 high or low for blood pressure??

  • Paranthropus Robustus

    Looks like palpation was 130-140/p and Korotkoff sounds were 136/64.

  • Jeed

    Forgot to wash hands again during the pumping period…jk great job, nice video

  • Dulce Dayne Celis

    Hi I'm a graduate of BS Nursing but still confused if I should record the systolic BP as THE FIRST EVER KOROTKOFF SOUND or THE FIRST LOUDEST KOROTKOFF??

    In your video, I think the BP of the patient is 130/70 (Very first/Very past korotkoff)

    Am I correct? Or Wrong?

  • ka10 ka10

    well demonstrated

  • Somaiya Zerin

    Thank you

  • Meena Periasamy


  • Renato Morais

    How do you check if the cuff size is the correct one? I see you putting it vertically on the "index" size but what does it mean? How does that work?

  • Dramangar

    Thanks for making a short and to the point video about this

  • Kate S.

    vídeo maravilhoso! <3
