   As the pressure in the cuffs falls THE “Whooshing” sound is heard when blood flow first starts again in the artery. The pressure at which this sound began is noted and recorded as the systolic blood pressure. The cuff pressure is further released until  sound can no longer be heard. This is recorded as the diastolic BLOOD PRESSURE

The result is recorded in the numbers as millimeters of mercury {mm Hg}.
