It doesn’t matter, the pressure doesn’t care, hit invert if you don’t like it.

Subject: ABII question
When taking pressure for the PT or DP and considering that they are anastomosed through the planter arch if you get a negative pulse do you use that or wait until you get a positive pulse to measure the pressure?
