Members don't see this ad.
I was reading through some hospital records and ran across:
"Breatkthrough episode of ventricular tachycardia at 200 with wood blood pressure."

I an interested in knowing what this wood blood pressure is.

i think "wood" refers to where the blood pressure cuff was placed, it is not uncommon to achieve very high wood pressures in some individuals

the cardiologist attending where I work has never heard of a "wood" blood pressure.

FYI :confused:

Would "wood" pressure be higher in the morning?

Lol, I seriously read this on a daily patient report. I guess it's a typo or the doc writing it has his own lingo.

One of my patients complained of "morning stiffness" and I almost blurted out, "welcome to my world," but stopped myself in time.
