dc.description.abstract A blood pressure (BP) apparatus or sphygmomanometer is a medical device. A BP apparatus measures the vital sign of blood pressure. A BP apparatus has two parts: an inflatable cuff and a manometer. The inflatable cuff restricts blood flow to the arm. The manometer is aneroid or mercury. The manometer measures the pressure in the cuff. Blood pressure is measured in millimeters of mercury (mm Hg). A valve controls the pressure in the cuff. Close the valve to increase pressure. Open the valve to release the pressure. en_US
