Changes in the blood pressure of a patient are signs of a more serious health condition. This will need a quick medical interference. By tracking the unsteady blood pressure as instructed by the doctor, a CNA will be able to help the whole nursing team. The group will know the appropriate treatment to be given to the sick patient.
Before starting the task, make sure your instruments are in good working condition and clean. Wash and soap your hands properly. Give your welcome smile and greet the patient. Inform the patient that you will take his blood pressure. The CNA should make himself comfortable for the patient. Introducing the name of the nursing assistant to the patient is a good start.
