This study aimed to validate the Pangao PG-800B5 upper arm blood pressure monitor according to the European Society of Hypertension International Protocol revision 2010.
A total of 33 participants, 16 men and 17 women, were included in the device evaluation. The protocol requirements were followed precisely.
The mean age of the participants was 56.4±21.0 years (range 22–84 years). The mean systolic blood pressure was 143.6±25.5 mmHg (range 98–188 mmHg), the mean diastolic blood pressure was 85.7±17.2 mmHg (range 49–125 mmHg), and the mean arm circumference was 26.1±2.2 cm (range 23–32 cm). On average, the device overestimated the systolic blood pressure by 0.9±4.2 mmHg and diastolic blood pressure by 0.7±4.5 mmHg.
The device passed all requirements, fulfilling the standards of the protocol. Therefore, the Pangao PG-800B5 upper arm blood pressure monitor can be recommended for clinical use and self-measurement in an adult population.
