Wimbourne Community First Responders
Thank you to everyone who supported the Wimbourne Community First Responders at fundraising events held at two Co-Op stores in April and August this year.
The money raised from generous donations from the general public has been used to purchase three sphygmomanometers.
A sphygmomanometer, also known as a blood pressure monitor, or blood pressure gauge, is a device used to measure blood pressure, composed of an inflatable cuff to collapse and then release the artery under the cuff in a controlled manner and a mercury or mechanical manometer to measure the pressure.
As part of the critical initial observations, an automatic blood pressure monitor is more resilient and robust compared to manual monitoring.
