The instruments to measure air pressure in the ambient surroundings include: a mercury barometerananeroid barometera weather glass Air pressure can also be measured in conta…iners (auto tyres and tanks). These measurements utilize: Bourdon gaugesDiaphragm gaugesSpring gauges (Like tyre pressure gauges)Piezoelectric gauges
bellows, diaphragm, bourden tubes
Not sure about pressure but wind speed is measured by an ANENOMETER. You may be able to meaure its pressure by some form of dynamometer (basically a spring-ba…lance) attached to a target-plate of known area. There may also be calculations using speed and barometric pressure.
What is the medical term meaning Instrument used to measure the pressure in the eye to detect glaucoma?
A tonometer is the medical term for the instrument used to measure the pressure in the eye to detect glaucoma. The tonometer shoots a blast of air into the eye, directly i…nto the pupil. A tonometer is used to measure eye pressure.
The spirometer measures lung pressure in terms of volume per unit time. The spirometer also measures volumes.
It's not possible to measure both of those quantities with a singleinstrument. Wind speed . . . anemometer Air pressure . . . barometer

They call it a Sphygmomanometer. (Sphyg mo manometer.) The word derives from the Greek for pulse, Sphyg. and Manometer for a pressure meter. For traditional reasons, the pre…ssure is still measured in the equivalent height of a column of mercury. Which is what was used originally in the manometer. inHg (Inches of mecury) The sphygmomanometer works by balancing air-pressure in an inflated cuff against the pulse pressure in the arm. A pressure gauge attached to the cuff indicates the pressure. The cuff is placed on the upper arm and then inflated. The pulse is listened to, using a stethoscope. The point at which the pulse can no longer be heard, is when the pressure of the cuff cuts off the blood supply and gives the upper reading, called the systolic. Then the pressure of the cuff is slowly released and the pulse listened to. The lowest pressure when the pulse can no longer be heard, is the Diastolic. This gives the two pressures of the heart, during a beat, at maximum pressure and when relaxed. These functions can be built into a machine, which uses a microphone to listen and an electric pump to control the cuff pressure. The computer displays the result on an LCD screen. The device was invented by Samuel Siegfried Karl Ritter von Basch in 1881. Scipione Riva-Rocci introduced a more easily used version in 1896. Harvey Cushing discovered this device in 1901 and popularized it.

A manometer is normally used to measure liquid pressure A manometer could also be referring to a pressure measuring device, usually limited to measuring pressures near t…o atmospheric. The term manometer is often used to refer specifically to liquid column hydrostatic instruments.
A Barometer measures atmospheric pressure.
