The sphygmomanometer is the simplest instrument available for measuring arterial blood pressure. A flat inflatable rubber cuff about 4″ × 10″ (10 cm × 25 cm) in size, is contained in a strong arm-band. The cuff has two rubber tubes entering it, one for inflating and deflating it. the other for connecting to a pressure manometer by a simple metal connector. The manometer may be either a mercury column or an aneroid gauge.
