Blood Pressure Monitors

Blood pressure monitor is a device used to measure blood pressure, composed of an inflatable cuff to collapse and then release the artery under the cuff in a controlled manner, and a mercury or aneroid manometer to measure the pressure.

Blood pressure is the force of ventricular contractions, arterial wall elasticity, peripheral vascular resistance, and blood volume and viscosity affects blood pressure, which is the lateral force that blood exerts on arterial walls. Blood pressure consist of systolic pressure and diastolic pressure readings.
