How to take "ankle" blood pressure?
When taking blood pressure at the lower leg, should the cuff be placed directly above the ankle or on the center of the calf? Should the pressure applied when pumping the bulb be taken to as high a level as the arm pressure (I usually pump up to 175 or so on the arm). Should there be pain when the cuff is pumped up around the calf? - The pain is inside the calf and feels like a sharp pinch inside when I go above 100. Should the left leg be higher or should they both be about the same?
