Today Tina who is a nurse is going to measure how Andreas’ blood is pumped around inside his body. It is called measuring the blood pressure.
The blood pressure is measured with this monitor.
This is a cuff. Tina puts it around Andreas’ arm.
When Tina presses a button on the machine there is a beeping sound and Andreas has to sit still. The cuff is filled with air just like when you blow up a balloon. It squeezes Andreas’ arm, then the air seeps out.
When it is done Tina removes the cuff. Then she reads the numbers on the monitor. Now the examination is finished!
