Each sphygmomanometer unit is coupled to a pressure transducer that converts the applied pressure into an electronic signal, which can be displayed using a PowerLab in LabChart. These units can be used in teaching, for example to demonstrate clinical blood pressure measurements in a lecture, tutorial or practical class. They are not intended for clinical use.
The pressure transducer is available either with a connector for a Bridge Pod or with an 8-pin DIN connector, which is for direct connection to a PowerLab Pod port or to a Bridge Amp.
Sphygmomanometers are supplied with your choice of cuff(s). The Sphygmomanometer with 3 Cuffs (DIN) is supplied in the Human Physyiology Kit. The Cardio Microphone allows simultaneous recording of arterial pulse sounds during a blood pressure measurement.
