SBP and DBP were recorded by mercury sphygmomanometer in supine position by auscultatory
The pre-exercise blood pressure or resting blood pressure, both SBP and DBP, was recorded using a sphygmomanometer by auscultatory
method in mmHg in supine position after 3 min rest.
method relies on the deduction of Korotkoff sounds for determining systolic and diastolic BP values.
LRTI was defined as the presence of at least three of the following signs and symptoms: cough, tachypnea, chest retractions, abnormal auscultatory
findings (wheezing or crackles), and radiologic evidence indicative of lower respiratory tract infection.
The dogs under group II with airway obstruction had costoabdominal type of respiration, inspiratory dyspnoea, synchronous movement of thoracic and abdominal wall, increased auscultatory
sounds characterized by stridor or stertor.
Conversely, rapid deflation during the auscultatory
measurement [>2 mm Hg/sec] can have the opposite effect, resulting in under-reading the true value.
The Fourth Task Force on the diagnosis, evaluation, and treatment of high blood pressure in children and adolescents of the National High Blood Pressure Education Program Working Group on High Blood Pressure in Children and Adolescents (21) recommends that pre-hypertension/hypertension be diagnosed after measuring blood pressure (BP) on 3 different occasions, with at least 2 BP readings performed on each occasion, and using the manual auscultatory
4[degrees]C, purulent pulmonary secretions, chest auscultatory
changes, changes on the chest radiograph and a rise in white cell count.
It's why Finns at Nokia invented texting (they couldn't bear face-to-face rejection when proposing dates) and why in 1816 Dr Laennec came up with his auscultatory
prosthesis (initially, a tube).
Increasing dyspnea, chest tightness, tachycardia, and auscultatory
crackles with or without desaturation following the pleural procedure suggests the onset of RPE.
These include tachycardia, bradycardia, hypotension, a water-wheel or mill-wheel murmur (a characteristic splashing auscultatory
sound due to the presence of gas in the cardiac chamber), shock-like picture, cardiac arrest, crackles, wheezing, tachypnea, hypoxemic respiratory failure altered mental status, focal neurological deficits, syncope, coma, crepitus in superficial vessels if skin is involved, and bubbles within the retinal arteries.
COPD was diagnosed according to generally accepted criteria [9-11] on the basis of a typical disease pattern (long-standing moist cough with sputum discharge, intermittent fever, crescendo dyspnea accompanied by poor exercise capacity, which is preserved in the absence of disease exacerbation, typical auscultatory
pattern in the lungs), medical history data (typical exacerbations of the disease), and X-ray findings (the presence of obstructive pulmonary emphysema, pulmonary fibrosis, change of the lung pattern, etc.
For the determination of overweight and obesity, we used the body mass index (BMI) and, in addition, the auscultatory
method for measuring blood pressure.
Blood pressure was determined by the indirect method, with the auscultatory
technique and the use of a mercury sphygmomanometer from the Premium[R] brand according to the recommendations of the SBC.
Arterial blood pressure was ascertained using the standard cuff technique with a mercury sphygmomanometer placed on the left forearm and measured with the auscultatory
