Patient-Specific Oscillometric Blood Pressure Measurement: Validation for Accuracy and Repeatability
Oscillometric devices are widely used for automatic cuff blood pressure (BP) measurement. These devices estimate BP from the oscillometric cuff pressure waveform using population average methods. Hence, the devices may only be accurate over a limited BP range. The objective... Read more
