Measurement of Blood Pressure

  1. 1. .
  2. 2. Blood PressureTypes of Blood PressureMethods To Measure Blood
  3. 3. Blood Pressure Blood Pressure is the pressure exerted by circulating blood upon the walls of blood vessels
  4. 4. Types of Blood Pressure Systolic Blood Pressure: It is specifically the maximum arterial pressure during contraction of Heart Diastolic Blood Pressure : Diastolic pressure, refers to the lowest pressure within the arterial blood stream due to expansion of heart
  5. 5. Measurement of Blood Pressure There are 3 basic ways to measure the blood Auscultatory. Oscillometric. Direct Method.
  6. 6. Auscultatory Method The auscultatory method (from the Latin word for "listening") uses a stethoscope and a sphygmomanometer.
  7. 7. Types of Sphygmomanometer Mercury column sphygmomanometer. Aneroid sphygmomanometer.
  8. 8. Oscillometric Method The oscillometric method involves the observation of oscillations in the sphygmomanometer cuff pressure
  9. 9. Direct Method A thin tube is directly inserted in the body to assess pressure of the blood Two types of direct method H2O manometers Electronic manometers
  10. 10. H2O Manometers Thin manometer tube is directly inserted in the body having water in it .
  11. 11. Electronic manometers An electronic pressure transducer can be connected to the patient to find pressure by thin tubing called catheter
