PASCO’s Wireless 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.

Battery and Logging
|Stored Data Points Memory (Logging) 1||Not Supported|
|Battery – Connected (Data Collection Mode) 2||>55 hr|
|Battery – Logging (Data Logging Mode) 3||Not Supported|
1 Minimum # of data points with all measurements enabled, actual results depend on enabled measurements.
2 Continuous use in a connected state until battery failure, actual results will depend on sample rate, active measurements, and battery condition.
3 Logging until battery failure, actual results will depend on sample rate, active measurements, and battery condition.
* Normal classroom use is the sensor in active use for 20min/lab for 120 lab periods/yr.
