Hard to read blood pressure

Q: My BP is high and hard to hear. What other methods could be used to get an accurate BP reading?

A: A sphygmomanometer is a blood pressure device used in many physician offices to measure blood pressure. With this device, one listens for the sound of the return of blood flow. On the other hand, with an electronic blood pressure monitor, the pulse does not need to be heard as a blood pressure reading is based on measurable electronic waves. Many different types of electronic devices are available for both home and professional use.
