    Sphygmomanometer

    The word "sphygmomanometer" (pronounced sfig·mo·ma·nom·e·ter) was put together from the Greek sphygmos, which translates to ‘the beating of the heart or the pulse’ + manometer, a device for measuring pressure or tension. So a sphygmomanometer is a device that measures blood pressure. Primarily sphygmomanometers are of three types: Mercury, aneroid and digital. Mercury is considered to be the golden standard, being the most conventional form of blood pressure apparatus; aneroid sphygmomanometers, in which the cuff is attached to a dial gauge with tubing, and the gauge head contains mechanical parts that convert the cuff pressure into gauge-based reading; and automated or digital sphygmomanometers typically used for screening before being validated by the manual sphygmomanometers on account of their lower accuracy in readings. A sphygmomanometer typically consists of an inflatable rubber cuff coupled with a measuring unit - the mercury manometer or aneroid gauge. The cuff is wrapped around the upper portion of the hand, the arm, for measuring blood pressure. They are used along with a manually operated bulb or electronic pump. Digital sphygmomanometer consists of a digital device indicator for showcasing results. There is hot debate around the question of which type of sphygmomanometer is best at gauging the correct readings, with the Journal of Public Health Policy studying the accuracy of mercury and aneroid sphygmomanometers from 1995 to 2009 and finding that mercury provided more accurate results. However, other significant studies suggested that aneroid devices perform better when maintained properly, and delivered greater result accuracies. The usage of both depends on the circumstance and location under which the test is being performed. Usually, experienced clinicians/doctors are able to deduce rational readings from both.
