There are several options depending on the type of air pressurebeing measured: . To measure atmospheric (ambient air) pressure, a barometer is used. . For tires, it's a …tire pressure gauge . . In industrial processes and boilers it is frequently called a manometer . For pressure vessels it is a Bourdon gauge
A stethoscope is the device used to allow a medical (or other) technician or professional to listen to the internal body sounds. Links can be found below.
The instrument used to measure air pressure is barometer. It is a scientific instrument used in meteorology to measure atmospheric pressure.
A Barometer is one, a manometer another. In aircraft, a Pitot Tube is used to infer velocity. Otherwise, tyre gauges and other pressure gauges are appropriate in their sphere.… A Bourdon Tube gauge is a common configuration.
A Blood Pressure cuff and stethoscope are used to determine BP.
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 …pressure 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.

Either a mercury barometer or an aneroid barometer can be set up to make constant measurements of atmospheric pressure.
It is a mouthful: sphygmomanometer. It is 6 syllables. SPHYG-mo-ma-NO-me-ter. The sphyg syllable (SFIG) starts with an uncommon SF sound. You just go from the non-vocalized s …sound to the non-vocalized f sound, and then go on.
The instrument that is used to measure atmospheric pressure would be a Barometer.
Barometer is used normally.Now adays electronic instruments are used.
The barometer is the instrument that is used to measure the airpressure.
