Description: The inflation of a balloon on the manometer simulates formation of an aneurysm and gives a qualitative idea of how the pressure varies as the balloon is blown up. The pressure drop as the aneurysm forms and the constant pressure as the aneurysm lengthens are particularly obvious. The red lines in the video show the initial position of the menisci.
