Has anyone succeeded in getting a replacement cuff for his BP monitor? Back when these testers were a novel ideal, I think they had microphones built into the cuff to hear the beats...and a plugged wire followed the hose to transmit the electrical signal.
The new ones seem to have all the guts of the monitoring in the unit itself and the cuff is just an airbag.
The velcro on my cuff is beginning to wear and to pop occasionally on inflation above 160 (during SPIKEY periods
) and I can prevent it by having the fold on the botttom of my arm and my arm lying lightly on a pillow: The slight pressure is just enough to keep the Velcro closure CLOSED!
Since all the hoses seem a similar diameter, I would think an all-purpose generic cuff would be a very handy maintenence replacement item. I mean why throw out the computer when the porinter runs out of paper?
(Or like the old saw: "I got a new car because the ashtrays were full on my old one!")
Has anyone seen anything?
