The easiest way to find out what might be wrong is to take the apparatus to a healthcare practitioner's office with you, and have your BP measured by someone trained to do so correctly, then use the cuff, and see how closely they match. Then adjust the looseness/tightness of the cuff, the position, etc., until you get matching BP's consistently. Accurate BP ...

They work as photoplethysmogram: Because the skin is so richly perfused, it is relatively easy to detect the pulsatile component of the cardiac cycle. Basically the light flash measures your heart rate. The change in volume caused by the pressure pulse is detected by illuminating the skin with the light from a light-emitting diode (LED) and then ...

Cairo University's Journal of Advanced Research (PDF) looks at all of the studies on ElectroMagnetic Interferene (EMI) from mobile cellular phones and medical equipment. It says that based on the literature, it was realized that during the initial development of cellular phones, the 2G cellular phones had caused more interference in the functioning of some ...

I think you are looking for irrigation syringes - I'm familiar only with the curved variety but at least on a google images search I see straight ones as well. That said, I've always used luer-style syringes with an appropriate fitting when using syringes in an equipment context. Major catalog parts suppliers have plastic and metal fittings with just about ...

A device to constantly measure "vitals" such as pulse and blood oxygen would be expensive, possibly invasive (a pulse oximeter on your finger while you lie in a hospital bed is no big deal, but will really get in the way while you're cooking or gardening) and subject to many false positives, such as when the device slips or the person removes it. ...

There are a variety of syringes listed as "disposable catheter " that typically have a tapered straight tip. A common size is 60 ml . The tip is "universal" friction fit. I use them for G-tube feeding , they are standard for that application despite the name. I typically use them about 20 times. Then use them for purposes similar to in the question . In ...

It would be great to be able to keep an infusion set for that long. The reason why infusion sets cannot stay as long as CGM sensors is that the cannula used for injecting insulin in an infusion set is a lot more invasive and damaging than the very thin fiber that is used for measurement in a CGM sensor. CGM users often make their sensors last much longer ...

Unfortunately no, I have not found in my research any pumps which can be attached for a longer amount of time, although I did find a study which you may find relates to your question. Link to Study The following is the rationale behind site transfer and the suggested schedule. The manufacturers of IISs and insulin formulations used in insulin pumps ...

There are no inhaled insulin products that are long-acting, basal products. Today, Afrezza is the only type of inhaled insulin that is available, and it is of course bolus insulin. The only other inhaled insulin product that made it to commercialization, Exubera (PDF), only lasted a year, and was also a fast-acting bolus insulin. By its very nature, inhaled ...

From the products online labelled as such, there seems to be no difference between "adult size", "Standard" and "Senior" sized (6") tongue depressors. On the other hand, I would assume "Senior" is used to differentiat that product from the "Junior" (5.5"), "Infant" (4.5") tongue depressors, which some companies label as such.
