    Exact answer has to be Trousseau sign. It is found in patients with hypocalcemia. When the pressure in the cuff is raised above the systolic pressure it becomes enough to occlude the brachial artery and of course in the absence of blood flow the hypocalcemia induces spasm in the muscles of the hands and forearm, hence this sign.
