Using the Blood Pressure Sensor with a Computer
• Standard adult size adjustable cuff (27 cm to 39 cm) When performing blood pressure measurements, it is best to work with a partner. Currently, Logger Lite only supports blood pressure measurements in mm Hg. Follow these general procedures to use the Blood Pressure Sensor with a computer: • Blood Pressure Sensor booklet (this booklet) 1. Connect the Blood Pressure Sensor to Channel 1 on the LabPro or to a Go! Link. How the Blood Pressure Sensor Works
Attach the rubber hose from the cuff to the connector on the sensor. The active sensor in this unit is the SenSym SDX05D4 pressure transducer. It has a 2. Wrap the cuff firmly around your partner’s arm, membrane which flexes as pressure changes. This sensor is arranged to measure approximately 2 cm above the elbow. The two rubber hoses differential pressure. The sensor produces an output voltage which varies with the from the cuff should be positioned over the bicep muscle pressure measured in the cuff. It includes special circuitry to minimize errors caused (brachial artery) and not under the arm. Important: The

With this circuit, the output voltage from the Blood remain still during data collection—no movement of the arm Pressure Sensor will be linear with respect to pressure. 3.

You are now ready to 6. Quickly and repeatedly squeeze the bulb to inflate the cuff on your partner’s arm. Continue inflating the cuff to a pressure between 150 and 170 mm Hg.

When the maximum pressure is reached, set the bulb pump down onto the mm Hg/second on an arm of 32 cm in circumference. For table.

After the pressure drops to 50 mm Hg, click adjust the valve so that the exhaust rate stays in the range of software and press down on the pressure release valve to release any air left in the 2.0–4.0 mmHg/s. With the bulb in hand and the hose cuff. If the pressure does not reach 50 mm Hg by the time data collection ends, leading away from you, place a screwdriver into the metal adjust the exhaust rate of the pressure release valve according to the directions slot on the top of the release valve. To increase the rate of listed under “Adjusting the Pressure Release Valve”. exhaust, turn the screwdriver clockwise. To decrease the rate of exhaust, turn the screwdriver counter-clockwise. The larger a subject’s arm the slower the release Helpful Tips
Blood pressure readings will differ from person to person and even between measurements on the same individual. Do not expect to receive the same Calculating Blood Pressure (Oscillometric Method)
measurements each trial since there are many factors that cause a person’s blood The oscillometric method is a non-invasive means of measuring blood pressure. It is pressure to increase or decrease. Use the following tips to take accurate based on the principle that blood pumped through the arteries by the heart causes the arterial walls to flex. When a cuff (placed around the upper arm to occlude the • The subject’s arm and hand must remain still during measurements. brachial artery) is inflated and then slowly deflated at a constant rate, an arterial pressure pulse forms. These pressure pulses pass from the arteries, through the arm, Proper placement of the pressure cuff will increase the accuracy of your blood pressure measurements. The rubber hoses from the cuff should exit over the brachial artery and 2 cm above the crease in the elbow. When the artery is fully compressed, blood flow stops along with the pulsations.

As the pressure in • Remove any clothing that may cover or constrict the portion of the arm being the cuff continues to decrease, more blood flows through the occluded artery and the pulses become increasingly significant until maximum amplitude is reached.

Over inflation of the cuff may cause pain and/or injury. • If the pressure release valve is exhausting slower or faster than 2.0–4.0 mmHg /s, then adjust the exhaust rate of the pressure valve. Blood Pressure Sensor Specifications
Maximum pressure without permanent damage These pressure pulses, when separated from the decaying mean pressure of the cuff, form an oscillating waveform (see figure below). The peak-to-peak amplitudes of this waveform create a bell shaped “envelope”. Within the envelope, the amplitudes of the waveform increase through the systolic blood pressure and continue increasing until the mean arterial pressure (MAP) is reached. Physiologically, the cuff pressure corresponding to the maximum amplitude approximates the mean arterial pressure. Generally, the systolic blood pressure is calculated by determining the point along the envelope prior to the MAP using a known percentage of the maximum amplitude. Diastolic blood pressure is calculated using the same method and the portion of the envelope following the MAP. Oscillatory waveform used to create “Envelope” Warranty
