Correct blood pressure measurement is the cornerstone of the diagnosis, management and treatment of arterial hypertension. Selection of the correct cuff size is of key significance. So-called undercuffing or overcuffing, i.e. the selection of a cuff which is too small or too large relative to the upper arm circumference can lead to a distortion of the measured values by up to 30 mmHg. Accordingly, ERKA. offers a wide range of different cuff sizes - from infant to thigh – the right size for each user. And what’s more: cuff change in the blink of an eye - the ERKA. quick closure makes it possible. This is our SMART Concept. Biocompatible, water-resistant and entirely dermatologically safe: our GREEN CUFF Smart cuffs can be superbly cleaned and easily disinfected. This means maximum hygiene for patient and staff.
HOW CAN THE RISK OF INFECTION BE MINIMIZED FOR BOTH - THE PATIENT AND MEDICAL PROFESSIONALS?
The surest protection is the use of recyclable disposable cuffs. We offer a comprehensive range here. The intentional omission of PVC and DEHP in our products and optimal supply chain combine ecology and efficiency in the most impactful way to act responsibly.
WHICH ALTERNATIVE PRODUCTS CAN I USE INSTEAD OF THE RECYCLABLE DISPOSABLE CUFF?
All reusable ERKA GREEN CUFF blood pressure cuffs can be disinfected thoroughly and quickly because of their unique surface and materiality.
IS THERE EVEN MORE PROTECTION PROVIDED BY ERKA?
It is recommendable to use ERKA reusable cuffs with the matching ERKA hygiene protection stripes (Ref. 000.04100). This prevents a direct skin contact and minimizes therefore potential risks.
