Caption: Blood pressure measurement. Man having his blood pressure measured by a hospital nurse. The instrument used is a sphygmomanometer. A cuff is inflated around the upper arm to stop blood flow in the main artery. The nurse detects blood flow with a stethoscope. The cuff is then slowly deflated: first to record systolic pressure of the pumping heart; then to record diastolic pressure of the relaxed heart between pumps. Blood pressure is expressed as a difference between these two measurements, in millimetres of mercury (mm Hg). Although blood pressure varies over the day, it is an important measure of bodily health.
