1. The cuff that comes with the Omron bp785 monitor is wrapped round the upper arm and then it's held in position by a Velcro and there's a tube that brings from the inflatable cuff to your rubber bulb. That rubber bulb is the main one used to fill the cuffs.
2. There is still another tube leading in the cuff to a reservoir of mercury located at the end of the vertical glass column. The pressure put into the cuff is found within the mercury column. The mercury can be used to exhibit the dimension of the blood pressure that's why it's kept inside a system.
3. Air is then pumped in to the cuff hence growing pressure and then you'll have the tightening around your upper-arm.
4. The physician may then put his stethoscope in your arm and then listens for your pulse while gradually releasing the air from the cuff.
5. The systolic pressure is calculated by your physician when he hears the very first pulse; this noise of the heartbeat will gradually diminish and then vanishes.
6. On the other-hand, the diastolic is calculated beginning with the moment your doctor is not able to hear the noise of one's pulse.
7. All these are measured in terms of millimeters of mercury or mmHg.
