M*A*S*H

Check-Up - S3-E7

Corrected entry: When Hawkeye takes Lt. Hoolihan's blood pressure, he attaches the cuff below her elbow. Blood pressure cuffs must go above the elbow.

Correction: I haven't seen the episode, but a blood pressure cuff does not need to be above the elbow, it just needs to be over an artery, any artery close enough to the surface to get a reading. Often, if the arms are too large, or if there are problems with the upper arm, a cuff may be placed below the elbow, around the wrist, even on legs if there is no other place, though that doesn't happen very often.
