Caption: Stethoscope and a sphygmomanometer bulb (lower left). A stethoscope is used to listen to sounds within the body. The earpieces (top centre) are used to listen to sounds transmitted by the sound- detecting device (round, lower right). It is most often used to diagnose heart and lung conditions, but is also used when measuring blood pressure. It is used to listen to the pulsing of the blood and determine the correct time to take measurements. Blood pressure measurement with a sphygmomanometer uses the bulb as a hand-operated pump to inflate an arm cuff. This temporarily cuts off the blood flow with an air pressure that corresponds to the blood pressure.
