French term or phrase: anisotension 17 bras D 14 bras G TA 93 AA
I understand that this refers to inter-arm pressure but I'm struggling to understand the figures - I realise the values are sometimes given in cmHg rather than mmHg - does it mean 170 mmHg systolic in the right arm and 140 in the left arm with a diastolic of 93? and the acronym AA?
Thanks for any help!
