Hi,

Try firmly holding the gauge section of the sphygmomanometer and gently tap it against the palm of the other hand and see if the column re unites.

Here is a link that describes three methods of re joining the mercury column in a thermometer. The principle should be the same for a sphygmomanometer.

Here is a link on how to maintain a mercury sphygmomanometer, which may also be of interest to you. http://www.ebme.co.uk/articles/maintenan....

Hopefully this is of some help.

Do make sure you don't spill or loose any mercury!

If you do, don't touch it and make sure you collect all of it in a sealed container to be properly disposed of (Both toxic & hazardous waste).
