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

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.
