Default So I may have served a corpse today....

Amongst all the other glorious gubbins I get to sell we had a blood pressure monitor. Today a couple bought it-they tried it first before buying.It worked no problem for her every time-when he came to try it,it didn't even register a pulse being present....

Don't look at him too hard or you may be driven mad.

It's very hard to find a pulse on me, but not that bad.

Apparently my late maternal grandfather used to freak out medical professionals. When they wanted to take his pulse he would make sure to give them the arm which had been injured during the war. Thanks to this he had no pulse in that wrist, and apparently he used to find it rather amusing to see them silently freaking out over not being able to find his pulse.

This is apparently a common problem for people with bigeminy. Which is a condition that can indicate other problems, so if you notice this you should consult a doctor.

A bigger problem is, if you think this is confusing to a blood pressure cuff, imagine how an auto-defibrillator will respond... :-O

When I was donating plasma I pondered if there was a way to trick the cuff into giving negative readings...
