When measuring blood pressure (BP) using the auscultation method, a stethoscope is commonly used. In clinical practice, it is sometimes placed under the cuff, but more usually outside the cuff on the antecubital fossa. However, there is little scientific evidence to quantify the BP difference between the BP measurements taken with the stethoscope under the cuff or outside the cuff. The aim of this study was to provide these data. © 2013 CCAL.
