ABSTRACT
The article presents a comparison of blood pressure measurement over a sleeved arm versus a bare arm. The study aims to determine whether the measurement of blood pressure over a sleeved arm varies from that taken on a bare arm. It reveals that there was no significant difference in blood pressure recorded over a sleeve or on a bare arm. According to the report, the decision to measure blood pressure on a bare arm or over a sleeved arm should be left to the judgment of the health care professional taking the blood pressure.
