Measuring Blood Pressure

A sphygmomanometer is a device that is used to measure blood pressure. It is composed of an inflatable cuff which collapses and then releases the artery under the cuff in a controlled manner, and a mechanical manometer is used to measure the pressure.

Types of Sphygmomanometers

There are three types of sphygmomanometers.

  • Mercury sphygmomanometers – They are considered a gold standard in this category. The measurements affect the column of mercury. Thus they don’t require constant or frequent calibration. Because of their accuracy, they are used in clinical trials and for precise measurements.
     
  • Aneroid sphygmomanometers – They are mechanical instruments and therefore require calibration. They are not as accurate as the mercury ones but if they are mounted on walls or stands then they give better results.
     
  • Digital sphygmomanometers – They are oscillometric and electronic measurements instead of the regular auscultations. But for these instruments too calibration is required. Hence they are also used for domestic purposes only.

These instruments measure the systolic and diastolic pressure and give an accurate result. Earlier we had to go to the doctor to check our blood pressure but today’s technology has made it simple for people to check their blood pressure at home.

For example the Omron Manual Inflation Digital Blood Pressure Monitor requires the individual to manually inflate the monitor, which is accomplished by squeezing the bulb to the necessary inflation level. Simply wrap the cuff around arm and squeeze the bulb to begin inflation. Blood pressure and pulse readings will display on the large digital panel in seconds. The Omron IntelliSense Automatic Blood Pressure Monitor With Printer is designed to intelligently adjust to changing conditions with no self-adjustment necessary. At the press of a button start, it automatically fills the cuff with air, starts deflation, then displays systolic, diastolic and pulse readings on an extra large display panel.
