Participants and Methods The PHILIPS DL8760 measures BP at the brachial level. The validation was performed in 33 subjects. The mean age of the participants was 55.8 ± 14 years. SBP 146.1 ± 26 mmHg (range: 103–193), DBP was 86.8 ± 17.0 mmHg (range: 47–123), and arm circumference was 28.3 ± 4.0 cm (range: 22–39). Results The PHILIPS DL8760 fulfilled the criteria of the ESH-IP by passing phases one and two for both SBP measurements and DBP measurements. The device overestimated SBP by 1.5 ± 5.0 mmHg and underestimated DBP by 0.7 ± 3.9 mmHg. Conclusion The PHILIPS DL8760 BP device, with its specially designed cuff covering a broad range of arm circumferences, fulfilled the requirements of the International Protocol Revision 2010.
