  Sphygmomanometer: Encyclopedia of Surgery
The sphygmomanometer is designed to monitor blood pressure by measuring the force of the blood in the heart where the pressure is greatest.
A sphygmomanometer is used to establish a baseline at a healthcare encounter and on admission to a hospital.
A sphygmomanometer consists of a hand bulb pump, a unit that displays the blood pressure reading, and an inflatable cuff that is usually wrapped around a person's upper arm.

 Sphygmomanometer definition - Medical Dictionary definitions of popular medical terms
The two types of sphygmomanometers are a mercury column and a gauge with a dial face.
The sphygmomanometer in most frequent use today consists of a gauge attached to a rubber cuff which is wrapped around the upper arm and is inflated to constrict the arteries.
The sphygmomanometer was introduced in 18896 by the Italian physician Scipione Riva-Rocci (1863-1937).

 Sphygmomanometer - Patent 4326536
A sphygmomanometer is provided with an automatic pressure inflation and deflation means for feeding a pressurized air into a cuff wound on the upper arm or the like so as to close the arterial blood flow.
More specifically, it relates to a sphygmomanometer which allows measurements of the systolic and diastolic blood pressure values of a person to be measured only by a mounting of a cuff to a portion of the person and a starting operation.
In these measuring instruments, the appearance and disappearance of the Korotkoff's sounds are detected with one's auditory sense using a microphone or stethoscope, and the pressure indicating value of a mercury or aneroid sphygmomanometer is traced with eyes to be memorized and measured, while increasing and decreasing the pressure to the cuff.

 Selecting a Sphygmomanometer or Blood Pressure Monitor - from Ronnie Falcão's Midwife Archives
And it is still the "gold standard" in that it is the most accurate measurement and is standard across many different instruments, so it's typically used by health care providers who don't need their equipment to be portable, and who need "accurate" readings that will be meaningful when compared with readings taken on other machines.
The term was first applied to barometers which operated by the effect of outside air pressure on a diaphragm forming one wall of an evacuated container, rather than a column of mercury.
Now, in the context of a sphygmomanometer, aneroid implies that there is a spring mechanism measuring the pressure in the cuff.
