As the cuff isdeflated and inflow resumes, arterial pressure can be determined.i) Palpation-A blood pressure cuff is placed above an easily palpated artery and inflated until the pulse ceases.Upon cuff deflation, systolic pressure is estimated as that pressure at which the pulse reappears. This methodis limited because it underestimates true arterial pressure and does not provide a diastoli
