Tools, Equipment, and Paraphernalia for Taking Vital Signs
BP Apparatus Aneroid (Sphygmomanometer)
An aneroid unit is mercury free and consists of a cuff that can
be applied with one hand for self-testing; a stethoscope that
is built in or attached; and a valve that inflates and deflates
automatically with the data displayed on an easy-to-read
gauge that will function in any position.
BP Apparatus Digital (sphygmomanometer)
A digital unit is mercury free and consists of a cuff that can be
applied with one hand for self-testing; a stethoscope that is
built in or attached; and a valve that inflates and deflates
automatically with the data displayed on the LCD
BP Apparatus Mercurial (sphygmomanometer)
A mercury-based unit has a manually inflatable cuff attached
by tubing to the unit that is calibrated in millimeters of
mercury. During blood pressure measurement, the unit must
be kept upright on a flat surface and the gauge read at eye
level.
Stethoscope
A stethoscope is an instrument which is used for listening to
the action of the heart, lungs, etc., usually consisting of a
circular piece placed against the chest, with tubes leading to
earpieces.
Thermometer
A thermometer is an instrument for measuring temperature.
Different kinds of Thermometer

Clinical Thermometer
A thermometer that registers body temperature via the ear canal.
Ear Digital Thermometer
Infrared Thermometer
An infrared thermometer is a thermometer which infers temperature from a portion of the thermal radiation sometimes called blackbody radiation emitted by the object being measured.
