Wireless Blood Pressure Sensor - PS-3218



PASCO's Blood Pressure Sensor allows students to quickly and easily measure both systolic and diastolic arterial blood pressure (mmHg) as well as heart rate (pulse in bpm).

Comparing the digits display for systolic and diastolic pressure with the display of blood pressure from the real-time graph helps students gain a contextual understanding of the physiology of blood pressure.

Typical Applications

  • Determine the effects of exercise on blood pressure and heart rate
  • Compare the blood pressure and heart rate of different students in the class
  • Explore the effects of body position on blood pressure and heart rate
