Caption

Blood pressure guidance. Diagram showing how to correctly fit an arm cuff when measuring blood pressure. The cuff is part of a device called a sphygmomanometer or blood pressure gauge. The cuff is inflated to stop the blood flow in the arm, and then gradually deflated while the doctor listens to the sound in the arm with a stethoscope. Readings of blood pressure are taken when the blood flow resumes. Modern sphygmomanometers are electronic and automated.
