The accurate measurement of a patient’s arterial blood pressure is vital as it enables clinicians to deliver safe and appropriate care. Blood pressure is a key measurement of haemodynamic status and is a marker of adequate organ perfusion and tissue flow. This article reviews the physical principles of both non-invasive and invasive methods of arterial blood pressure measurement. Recent developments in ‘continuous’ non-invasive monitoring techniques are also outlined.
