How to judge the accuracy of the blood pressure monitor?

 

  1. The China hypertension alliance and the National Center for cardiovascular disease recommend the use of upper arm electronic blood pressure monitors certified by three major institutions [ESH (European Society for hypertension), BHS (British Hypertension Association) and AAMI (American National Standard Institution)]. The certification of these three organizations is equivalent to the international gold standard. The certified electronic blood pressure monitors can ensure the accuracy of blood pressure measurement at home.

 

  1. As medical devices, certifications such as ISO13485, FSC, CE0197, ROHS, 510K listing and some other registration approval should be basic for blood pressure monitors.

 

  1. Arm type blood pressure monitors will be in higher accuracy than wrist and watch types. The arm type blood pressure monitors are relatively accurate because it measures the brachial artery. For patients with severe vascular sclerosis, vascular calcification, diabetes, hyperlipidemia, hypertension and other blood disorders and vascular diseases, the blood pressure measurement values of the wrist and upper arm are usually very different, so the wrist type blood pressure monitor is not recommended.

 

  1. Measuring methods will also affect the accuracy of blood pressure monitors. Blood pressure data will be dynamic as per your body status and measurement postures. For example, when you come to the consulting room and sit down in a hurry, you need to measure your blood pressure, "Ge You's paralysis" posture, the cuff is hung on the arm bend or even on the forearm, and you move around during measurement. All these will affect the accuracy of blood pressure measurement.
