Q: How much is the pressure usually inflated in the arterial line pressure bag?

Answer: 300 mmHg

In arterial line monitoring, keeping pressure bag inflated to 300 mm Hg, keeps line patent and infuses saline 3-5ml /hr, which prevents dampening of traces and prevents clot formations. Deflation of bag will result in retrograde blood flow.
