Blood pressure posters for clinical exam rooms

These 11"x17" posters were created for display in primary care exam rooms at Massachusetts General Hospital. Their goal was to improve the quality of blood pressure measurement.

They show actions that interfere with measurement: crossing legs, drinking caffeinated drinks, multitasking, sitting with legs hanging off the exam table, and rolling clothing up above the blood pressure cuff.

They contrast this with actions that improve accuracy: sitting in a chair with uncrossed legs and feet on the floor, removing clothing rather than rolling it up, and avoiding multitasking and drinking caffeinated drinks.
