This article reports the development of an electronic manometer for use in the measurement of blood pressure. It is intended to act as a replacement gauge for the mercury and aneroid manometers used in conventional sphygmomanometers. It measures pressure in the range 0-300 mm Hg (0-40 kPa) with a resolution of 1 mm Hg (0.13 kPa) and an accuracy of +/- 1 mm… (More)
