There are many explanation regarding pressure monitoring, blood flow, pressure, and noise are described in the application note. This application note contains things about blood, blood pressure, monitor, and blood pressure monitor.
In this application note you can get description around sensor, pressure sensor, pressure monitor, and blood pressure monitoring. These are grabbed from the application note:
The most common method for measuring blood pressure is with a pressure cuff hooked to a mercury manometer. A health care professional manually pumps the cuff to put pressure on the artery. He or she then uses a stethoscope to time the noise of the blood rushing through the artery (onset is systolic pressure), and the noise of the blood slowing to the resting mode (diastolic pressure). Today, blood pressure monitoring has become much easier and more efficient due to automated monitoring equipment. This equipment currently is in place at most hospitals and pharmacies. To simplify the process even more, an “athome” solid-state blood pressure monitor is now available.
