It was shown, that in 52 percent of blood pressure measurements made with an inflating cuff, the linear increase in venous blood pressure was also increasing with palpated signal's amplitude linearly. It was found that the strong increase in venous pressure was not the reason for increased blood pressure amplitudes. The method for determining venous pressure by an electronic method was considered. The electronic palpation method can be used for venous pressure measurement if it is made with an inflating cuff and secondly with a deflating cuff. At the start of the measurements, blood pressure should be monitored in the absence of cuff pressure for determining the venous pressure at rest.
