Sphygmomanometers are medical devices used to measure blood pressure. They are an essential part of medical care and are used by both healthcare professionals and patients. A mechanical sphygmomanometer consists of a blood pressure cuff, a manometer, and a stethoscope.
The way a sphygmomanometer works is based on the principle of Boyle's Law. According to the law, the volume of a gas is inversely proportional to its pressure at a constant temperature. The pressure is measured by a manometer in the device, and the blood pressure monitor also comes with a stethoscope that can be used to listen and measure blood flow.
When buying a sphygmomanometer do not forget that it is very important to choose products with a certification mark. Wrong measurements can lead to wrong diagnoses and treatments. In addition, make sure that you are familiar with this way of measuring - as it is more demanding compared to using a digital blood pressure monitor - and that you can comfortably tighten the blood pressure bulb.
