Nurses should be aware of manual BP measurement techniques and understand the patient and environmental factors that may result in inaccurate readings that could compromise patient care.
Nurses should regularly undertake manual BP measurement to ensure they remain competent to perform the procedure.

List the preparatory steps and equipment used to measure blood pressure manually.
Demonstrate how to read and measure a blood pressure by the use of manual equipment.
