There exist lots of historical pressure units as bar, atm., mmWs, but allowed today in SI = Système International d'unités are only Pascal, Newton/m!, exception for medicine: also the pressure unit mm Hg is allowed.
A further difference which will show up in medical applications shall be mentioned: the word “monitoring” means in technical applications: to observe a situation for any changes which may occur over time. In medicine, it also means that, but in addition
medical monitoring means: plus alarm. The standard for patient monitors is: ISO 60601-2-49.
