Accurate and reliable blood pressure (BP) measurement is critical for the proper diagnosis and management of hypertension. Many factors can contribute to inaccurate BP readings, and these include the patient themselves, the equipment that's available to you, procedural factors, and observer related factors. It is important to be aware of these factors. In this module, you'll learn how to identify and reduce the impact of these factors. This module should be taken after the completion of the BP Measurement Essentials module on an as-needed basis.
