manometer

[mənom′ətər]
Etymology: Gk, manos, thin, metron, measure
a device for measuring the pressure of a fluid, consisting of a tube marked with a scale and containing a relatively incompressible fluid, such as mercury. The level of the fluid in the tube varies with the pressure of the fluid being measured. Kinds of manometers are aneroid manometer and sphygmomanometer.

(mă-nom'ĕ-tĕr)
An instrument for measuring the pressure of gases or liquids.

manometer

A glass U-tube containing mercury or other liquid, and having a graduated scale, used to measure pressure in a gas. One end of the tube is left open, the other is connected by a flexible pipe to the source of pressure.

Manometer

A device used to measure fluid pressure.

manometer

An instrument for measuring the pressure of gases, vapour, blood or the intraocular pressure directly. See intraocular pressure; tonometer.

manometer

an instrument for ascertaining the pressure of gases or liquids, particularly blood pressure. See also sphygmomanometer.

aneroid manometer
provides direct measurement of mean arterial blood pressure through a catheter placed in a peripheral artery.
