The accuracy of wrist cuff and arm cuff

Q: Wrist cuffs vs bicep cuff…which is most accurate?

A: The gold standard for taking blood pressure is the arm cuff. With proper technique both cuffs provide an accurate reading. It is important to follow the directions that come with the cuff. In my opinion, arm cuffs are easier to use because positioning is so important to get an accurate reading.
