Blood Pressure Cuffs

17 Jan

Everybody in nursing school needs one of these but we students don’t have much money! So I looked around to try and find one that wasn’t crazy expensive. At school they were running 37-45 bucks (and a lot were out of calibration), at the uniform store they were up in the 25-30 range. The best price I’ve found is by special order through my Sams club. A very good blood pressure cuff with case for $20.51! Can’t beat that with a stick!

So need a good cuff cheap? Hit up your Sams or Walmart and ask them to order you one from McKesson. It won’t be on the shelf, you have to ask the pharmacist but it’s well worth it. The order comes in the next day and you have one for cheap. Don’t want to make two trips? They’ll order it over the phone if you call them!! Not sure if Walmart’s is as cheap, Sam’s doesn’t upcharge at all and infact sells it for less than the price posted on the McKesson website.  You do need a membership to buy special orders there tho so keep that in mind. IF you don’t have a membership ask a friend who does to go get one for you.
