Contec CMS-08A Optional Blood Pressure Cuff Alignment

(Dark Green Color)




The circle with a line passing through it on the inside of the cuff is the “Artery Mark”. It should be placed over the Brachial Artery for proper reading from the BP monitor. In addition, the cuff should be placed approximately ¼ to 1 ¼ inches above the elbow.








With the “Artery Mark” aligned, close the cuff and check to see that the “Index Line” falls within the “Min / Max” range marked on the inside of the cuff. This insures that the proper size cuff for the patient's arm is being used.
