Hi darinmex! The difficult word for the german translation was "nurse" The other thing is simply a "Bloodpressuremeasuringdevice" :)

Hey Dejo. Thanks for the translation. I'm surprised that "nurse" would be difficult to translate. Why is that? And I love that long, silly, difficult-to-pronounce word in both languages!

What's a sphygmomanometer when it's at home? I'm not a native speaker of English but I'm pretty sure that 95% of those who are would ask that question. What I'm saying is, could anybody provide the word that would actually be used by a nurse with no desire to show off ?

@PeterR: According to Wikipedia it's a blood pressure meter.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sphygmomanometer
I've also seen: blood pressure gauge, blood pressure cuff, blood pressure thingy. It is the tragedy of English, that this language boasts more words than many others, but don't try to use any of them or you'll be thought of as an elitist snob. Among native English speakers the learned and the illiterate share the same vocabulary, or as Novel Prize winner Pearl Buck said, "An illiterate Chinese peasant expresses himself better than an American college graduate."
