Direct Blood Pressure Measurement

Blood pressure can be measured indirectly (using a noninvasive monitor) or directly (using an arterial catheter). Direct measurement is more accurate, so it may be required for critical care, surgical, or hospitalized patients. Follow this step-by-step guide for placing an arterial catheter. Performing this procedure quickly and efficiently can help save lives.
