Does this suggest that it’s possible to measure BP with the cuff on a leg?
Yeah you can measure BP with a leg cuff. Not sure if you can just use an arm one or if you need a special one.
I think my idea is probably wrong however as when I thought about it a bit more, I can even feel and see heavy pounding in my wrist. Which shouldn't be happening if my theory was right and BP normal.
It is quiet a mystery why we have such forceful, visible, heavy heart pounding yet it doesn't show up on BP.
Here is another idea I just pulled out of the air. So the BP machines work by pumping the cuff full of air and then measuring how much comes out with each beat, right? What if the reason the BP is normal is because our heart is pumping extra hard to maintain normal BP thanks to some other issue. Maybe we have too much vasodialation or leaky vessels or low blood volume or something else which if our heart didn't pump very hard our BP would read low,
I am imagining something like the blood pumping through the arteries HARD, but then disappating out through leaky capilaries. The increase BP in the arteries is offset by the decrease in the capilaries. Or not that but something vaguely like that. No idea if that is even possible but if somebody knows a little about this I would like to hear their opinion.
