Aneroid Sphygmomanometer (with stethoscope)
Keeping track of your blood pressure can be a difficult task, but with the help of a sphygmomanometer, it’s much easier.
With attached single head stethoscope.

An aneroid sphygmomanometer is a device used to measure blood pressure, composed of an inflatable cuff to collapse and then release the artery under the cuff in a controlled manner, and a mercury or aneroid manometer to measure the pressure. The stethoscope is used to listen to the Korotkoff sounds, which are faint tapping noises that correspond to the waves of blood flow through your arteries as your heart beats. The first sound (systolic pressure) occurs when blood flow first returns after your heart contracts. The second sound (diastolic pressure) is heard when blood flow slows after your heart relaxes between beats.
An aneroid sphygmomanometer is a type of blood pressure monitor that uses a mercury-filled cuff and stethoscope to measure your blood pressure. The mercury in the cuff expands as your blood pressure increases, and the stethoscope allows you to hear your heartbeat so you can keep track of your pulse. To use an aneroid sphygmomanometer, first wrap the cuff around your upper arm and inflate it until it's snug but not too tight. Then place the stethoscope over your brachial artery (located on the inside of your elbow) and listen for your heartbeat. Slowly release the air from the cuff, monitoring your pulse with the stethoscope until you can no longer hear it. The reading on the mercury column will indicate your systolic blood pressure (the top number), while the diastolic blood pressure (the bottom number) is taken when there is no sound of your heartbeat heard through the stethoscope.
There are many different types of aneroid sphygmomanometers with stethoscopes on the market today. Here is a look at some of the most popular types:
1. Aneroid Sphygmomanometer with Stethoscope: This type of aneroid sphygmomanometer is the most popular and widely used type. It is simple to use and very accurate.
2. Digital Aneroid Sphygmomanometer with Stethoscope: This type of aneroid sphygmomanometer is becoming more popular as it is more accurate than the traditional analog type. It is also easier to read.
3. Wireless Aneroid Sphygmomanometer with Stethoscope: This type of aneroid sphygmomanometer is very convenient as it does not require any wires or cords. It is also very accurate.
