I cannot tell you how many timwes I have had patients tell me to take their
blood pressure in a certain arm (usually the left) because their BP is much
better in that arm!?! It seems that all their health care providers have
been in compliance with this request for years taking the pressure in the
arm with a lesion because the reading is more to their liking and therefore
they do not have to be treated for HTN!
As patient/ Provider educators we have a long row to hoe!
