Pressure gauges

Pressure gauges are essential medical devices used to measure and track heart and vascular health. With the ability to accurately measure your blood pressure, this device can provide valuable insight into your overall health. It's a convenient, non-invasive way to monitor vital signs without having to visit a doctor or hospital. The data collected from your blood pressure monitor can be used to make important decisions about your lifestyle and medical care.

There are two main types of blood pressure monitors:

  • Pressure gauge mercury: This is a traditional type of sphygmomanometer that consists of a glass tube filled with mercury and a manometer. The manometer indicates the value of blood pressure as the mercury in the tube moves in response to changes in pressure. Mercury sphygmomanometers are considered accurate, but due to their mercury content, they are being used less and less for health and environmental reasons.

  • Pressure gauge automatic (Electronic): This type of blood pressure monitor works by detecting pulse pulsations with a sensor and measuring blood pressure automatically. The result is displayed on a digital screen. Automatic blood pressure monitors are more practical and easy to use, and their results are usually accurate.

There are a few important rules to follow when measuring blood pressure with a blood pressure monitor:

  1. The person should be in a calm and relaxed state for several minutes before the measurement.

  2. The arm on which the measurement is taken should be exposed and resting on a flat surface, such as a table.

  3. The cuff of the blood pressure monitor should be placed on the upper arm in the correct position, usually at the level of the heart.

  4. The person taking the measurement should turn on the blood pressure monitor and read the results.

The measurement result consists of two values: systolic pressure (upper result) and diastolic pressure (lower result), expressed in millimeters of mercury (mmHg).

Regular monitoring of blood pressure with a blood pressure monitor can be important for people with high blood pressure or at risk of cardiovascular disease, as well as for monitoring overall cardiovascular health.
