How Does a Sphygmomanometer Work?


A sphygmomanometer works together with a stethoscope to measure and monitor blood pressure. The simple term for it is a blood pressure cuff. The cuff is placed on the upper arm of a patient and wrapped tight. The medical professional listens to the pulse with a stethoscope while pumping up the inflatable cuff. Listening to the patient's pulse, or heart beats will tell the blood pressure, also referred to as systolic over diastolic pressure. A level of mercury is used in the blood pressure cuff monitor, similar to how a thermometer detects a temperature.
