PMID:  7749357     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
A computer simulation of a catheter manometer system was used to quantify measurement errors in neonatal blood pressure parameters. Accurate intra-arterial pressure recordings of 21 critically ill newborns were fed into this simulated system. The dynamic characteristics, natural frequency and damping coefficient, were varied from 2.5 to 60 Hz and from 0.1 to 1.4, respectively. As a result, errors in systolic, diastolic and pulse arterial pressure were obtained as a function of natural frequency and damping coefficient. Iso-error curves for 2%, 5% and 10% were constructed. Using these curves, the maximum inaccuracy of any neonatal catheter manometer system can be determined and used in the clinical setting.
