To validate the accuracy of Raycome RBP-1200 used for blood pressure (BP) measurements in Chinese children aged 3-12 years according to the Association for the Advancement of Medical Instrumentation (AAMI)/lnternationat Organization for Standardization 81060-2:2013(E) protocol.
A prospective observational study was carried out using the same arm sequential method’ as described in the A心I protocol. Eighty-seven children participated in this examination and 255 paired-determinations were analyzed.
The BP difference between the RBP-1200 and the mercury sphygmomanometer device was – 0.9± 5.3 mmHg for systolic BP and – 1.1±5.0 mm Hg for diastolic BP, which were within the range of±5±8 mmHg as required by criterion 1 of the AAMI protocol. The SD of the averaged difference for each participant was 4.1 mmHg for systolic BP and 3.9 mmHg for diastolic BP, which were also within the requirement of criterion 2 of the AAMI protocol.
The Raycome RBP-1200 device fulfills the requirements of the AAMI protocol and it can be recommended for BP measurements in Chinese children aged 3-12 years with low or normal BP values. Blood Press Montt 22:40-43 Copyright©2017 Wolters Kluer Health, Inc. All rights reserved.
