Blood pressure can be measured non-invasively (NIBP), e.g. sphygmomanometer or invasively by direct cannulation of a peripheral artery, e.g. invasive arterial blood pressure monitoring (see Arterial Lines: Intra-Arterial Blood Pressure Monitoring later in this chapter). The latter provides a continuous waveform trace after attachment to an electronic pressure transducer.
