Welcome to our blood pressure training guide. In this section we provide a review of how to take blood pressure; assessment guides for adults and children; practice drills for the assessment of hypertension in children; and a series of case studies on hypertension and hypotension blood pressure.
Blood Pressure Simulator
Our case studies provide training for assessing blood pressure using our simulator. The adult case study course will teach you how to obtain blood pressure readings, heart and lung sounds, patient history and test results in order to establish a diagnosis and a treatment plan. The cases presented involve hypertension (high blood pressure), hypotension (low blood pressure), elevation of only systolic or diastolic pressures.
Adult Blood Pressure Course - Part I
These cases build assessment skills by simulating blood pressure measurement by auscultation. Users will also practice evaluation of hypertension using the NIH's classification tables for children.
