Accurate blood pressure measurement is considered one of the most crucial of regular medical tests, yet studies indicate the most common method of blood pressure measurement is often inaccurate. These studies have found participant knowledge inadequate in order to properly perform blood pressure measurement, allowing room for an imperative issue: medical error.
Misdiagnosis of high blood pressure can lead to patients being prescribed unnecessary medications. While misdiagnosis of low and/or normal blood pressure can be a missed opportunity for lowering a patient’s risk of cardiovascular disease, which can lead to strokes, heart attacks, or kidney disease.
KbPort™ recognized the need to empower learners, our future healthcare professionals, to have the tools necessary to improve the lives of patients. KbPort™ BPSim™ fills the current academic gap by realistically simulating blood pressure and providing instructors with the ability to accurately assess blood pressure measurement.
Accurate blood pressure readings are necessary to make precise clinical decisions.
