English term or phrase: BP (RA)
Estoy traduciendo un informe médico de un niño de 8 años y en la sección del examen físico dice:

"Vital signs: HR: 82 bpm; RR: 16/min; **BP (RA)**: 113/75 mmHg; oxygen saturation: 98% in room air"

BP = blood pressure = rensión arterial. ¿A qué se refiere RA aquí? ¿Right arm?

Gracias nuevamente
