Since this is part of the blood pressure (BP) measurement technique when using the Riva Rocci (mercury) device or the aneroid device, most patients are evaluated for rhythm irregularity while checking their BP, and, if pulse isn't palpated, heart rhythm can be evaluated through auscultation of KoroktofP sounds.
The needle was connected via a polyethylene tube to a three-way stopcock, which was also connected to a reservoir (syringe) containing 10mL of physiologic saline solution (Fresenius Kabi, Campinas, SP, Brazil) and to an aneroid manometer (Missouri, Sao Paulo, SP Brazil) that was at the zero position relative to the center of the eye.
