So I took a F/85 BP.On the get go it appeared like any other BP exp. but repeating I observed a gap of some 25mm Hg in recording systolic via auscultation vs palpatory methods . I could not see obvious features of the "silent gap" via Korotkoffs at the higher end but radial pulse got Sys @148 vs korotkoffs at 126
then I used a Walgreen Auto BP cuff and it gave me findings consistent with radial method.Is this the silent gap?
