Some stroopwafels for you![edit]

Gaufre biscuit.jpg Excellent work at hypertension, including the identification of sources that meet the standards of WP:MEDRS. The cardiovascular disease articles on Wikipedia need a lot of work, so your presence is much welcomed. JFW | T@lk 22:56, 27 December 2011 (UTC)

Translation project[edit]

We are working on a translation project to both improve than translate key medical articles into as many other languages as possible. The list of articles is here Book:Health care. There are a couple of other cardiovascular related articles that need work before translation including: myocardial infarction, hypercholesterolemia, and cardiovascular disease. Would appreciate your help :-) Doc James (talk · contribs · email) 06:42, 12 March 2012 (UTC)

New medical organization[edit]


I'm contacting you because, as a participant at Wikiproject Medicine, you may be interested in a new multinational non-profit organization we're forming at m:Wikimedia Medicine. Even if you don't want to be actively involved, any ideas you may have about our structure and aims would be very welcome on the project's talk page.

Our purpose is to help improve the range and quality of free online medical content, and we'll be working with like-minded organizations, such as the World Health Organization, professional and scholarly societies, medical schools, governments and NGOs - including Translators Without Borders.

Hope to see you there! --Anthonyhcole (talk) 21:17, 25 October 2012 (UTC)

The Pulse[edit]

The first edition of The Pulse has been released. The Pulse will be a regular newsletter documenting the goings-on at WPMED, including ongoing collaborations, discussions, articles, and each edition will have a special focus. That newsletter is here.

The newsletter has been sent to the talk pages of WP:MED members bearing the {{User WPMed}} template. To opt-out, please leave a message here or simply remove your name from the mailing list. Because this is the first issue, we are still finding out feet. Things like the layout and content may change in subsequent editions. Please let us know what you think, and if you have any ideas for the future, by leaving a message here.

Thanks, Adh30, for links to &[edit]

Thanks, Adh30, for posting that link to, The British Hypertension Society. Much helpful info at that page, especially the videos on how to interpret the korotkoff sounds while reading a mercury spyhmomanometer. And I found the European Society of Hypertension recommendations, at

However, some other issues are not addressed, such as when and how to verify the calibration of a patient’s consumer grade blood pressure device, that is used at home. I find that all consumer grade devices measure inaccurately when new, giving readings that are 5% to 15% too high. And, as the devices age, they drift either up or down. (I know this is true, by comparing with a mercury sphygmomanometer, tee'd into the air line, and a good stethoscope.) IMHO, that is unsatisfactory for the tight tolerance band on acceptable blood pressure. Yet, no one wants to recognize this situation. For example, here in the USA, MDs refuse to let me take a comparison measurement with my sphygmomanometer, right after measurement on their automated machines. Not a comfortable situation.

Thanks for your help. (talk) 22:28, 21 August 2015 (UTC)
