What to do when faced with an unmeasurable ambulatory blood pressure?


:If ambulatory blood pressure measurement is not possible because the upper-arm circumference is so great that even the largest cuff provided with the monitor will not encircle the arm, satisfactory measurements can be obtained by applying a cuff to the forearm.
