The error in indirect blood pressure measurement with the incorrect size of cuff.

Abstract

This paper shows the error to be expected when blood pressure is measured indirectly with a cuff that is too wide or too narrow for the member to which it is applied. A cuff that is too narrow overestimates and a cuff that is too wide underestimated blood pressure.
