Blood Pressure Aneroid Monitor Desk / Wall Mountable

Blood Pressure Aneroid Monitor is a type of sphygmomanometer that uses a dial gauge to measure blood pressure. It does not require external power and is commonly used in medical settings as well as for home monitoring. Aneroid monitors typically consist of an inflatable cuff that wraps around the upper arm, a bulb to inflate the cuff, a valve to release pressure, and the gauge to display blood pressure readings in millimeters of mercury (mmHg).

To use an aneroid blood pressure monitor:

  1. Preparation: Sit comfortably with your arm supported at heart level. Remove any tight clothing that might interfere with the cuff placement.
  2. Positioning the Cuff: Place the cuff around your bare upper arm, with the bottom edge of the cuff about 1 inch above the bend of your elbow.
  3. Inflation: Use the bulb to inflate the cuff by squeezing it until the gauge reads about 30 mmHg higher than your typical systolic pressure.
  4. Deflation: Slowly open the valve to release air from the cuff, allowing it to deflate gradually while listening for your pulse using a stethoscope or paying attention to the gauge.
  5. Reading the Measurements: Note the systolic pressure (the top number) when you first hear your pulse, and the diastolic pressure (the bottom number) when the sound disappears.
  6. Recording: Record the measurements, noting both systolic and diastolic pressures.

Aneroid monitors require periodic calibration to ensure accuracy. It’s also important to use them correctly for reliable results. If you have any concerns about your blood pressure or how to use the monitor, consult with a healthcare professional.
