BACKGROUND: The use of ambulatory blood pressure measuring devices has become widespread in the diagnosis of hypertension. The accuracy of the device is fundamental for the diagnosis and treatment of the disease. OBJECTIVE: Internationally accepted validation of the newest ambulatory blood pressure measuring device, the ABPM-04 prototype, manufactured by Meditech Ltd. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Validation was carried out by assessing 94 outpatients, according to the British Hypertension Society protocol. RESULTS: The test device achieved grade B on the scale defined in the British Hypertension Society protocol, for both systolic and diastolic blood pressure. The mean and standard deviation of the difference between measurements of the test device and the mercury standard for both systolic and diastolic blood pressure were within the recommendations of the Association for the Advancement of Medical Instrumentation. CONCLUSION: The present study demonstrates that the Meditech ABPM-04 ambulatory blood pressure measuring device complies with the above mentioned requirements, and thus can be recommended for clinical use.
