Episode 207: Please stop measuring all those blood pressures – PART II

In episode 207, Mike and James keep up the pressure on blood pressure measurements. We talk about the magnitude of the benefit, the variability of all these measurements and get into the whole starting and stopping approach. At the end of the podcast we decide the bottom line is to not panic, sit back, put up your feet and relax and try to get your patients to do the same thing.
