If you placed the stethoscope on the patient's bracial artery, but did not put the BP cuff on the patient, you wouldnt hear blood flow sounds. Explain Why you woundnt hear hear bllod floww sounds if you didn't put the BP cuff in the patient?
The BP cuff constricts arteries and veins, so when the blood pulses to try and get through, that's what you'd hear. (The pounding)
If that makes sense....?
