Article Body:
Blood Pressure has something to do with the personality of an individual.
Obese personalities have a higher rate of blood pressure. Their suffering
and style of hypertension is different from that of the ordinary people.
Every medical practitioner tells you about this.

Often, fat people face the problem of blood pressure monitoring. Wrong
sized blood pressure cuffs are used, and they naturally give the wrong
reading. Even when the blood pressure of the obese people is normal, the
readings tell a different story.

Using improper size cuffs, at times may prove to be critical mistake!
Many medical practitioners are aware of the seriousness of this
discrepancy and yet they ignore it. Take the case of a pregnant woman-if
she were to carry on with the use of wrong-sized blood pressure cuffs, it
is not only harmful for her but also for the child. (When wrong
medication is done by wrong reading of blood pressure level.)

Accuracy of data is important in treating blood pressure- high or low!
Medication and blood pressure level are importantly interrelated! The
blood pressure cuff that is being used must be according to your
condition of health, all factors considered! In case of the pregnant
women, the concern for the baby is more!

It is you who are having blood pressure, therefore, you must possess the
accurate knowledge about the cuff that you are going use. In a situation
where larger cuffs are needed, and you use the smaller ones, the damage
will be difficult to repair at a later time. For, the damage might have
already occurred! As a blood pressure patient, you must be in constant
touch with the blood pressure related matters, through some authentic
journals, and you must keep a tab on the latest research on cuffs also.
It is in your interest!
There are scientific reasons why a large-sized cuff is needed. Use a
regular cuff on a fat person. It will artificially inflate the level of
blood pressure in fat individuals. There won’t be meaning in further
treatment, if the data before the medical practitioner is itself wrong!
Cuff, when accepted and used as a measuring instrument of blood pressure,
it should be a correct-sized tool.
