Latex free bp cuff?

  1. This is on my list of items I need. I've searched the web, and haven't seen them labeled as latex free. Would they say if they were or not? Thanks!

    Latex may not be heavily used in quality cuffs. This item is advertised as being made of nylon - which is not latex. http://www.stethoscopes.com/Merchant...ory_Code=BPSMF

    Yeah, I am not sure if regular cuffs have latex, but here is a link for nylon cuffs.

    It isn't the cuff itself that she needs to worry about, most all are nylon, it is the tubing. I have a latex allergy myself, yes they do make them latex free, but most don't advertise it. You need to call the company and ask. I am just getting back into the field so once I get mine unpacked, I'll post what brand it is here so those who are looking for this in the future can have the info. Hope this helps.

    Cheapest non latex cuff I could find. Like the others have said, most cuffs are not going to contain latex in the cuff itself, but mainly in the tubing and bulb. so, if its needed, this is where i could find one. dealt with them before without a hitch.
