The study was done to validate the use of automated devices (Datascope Duo) as a screening tool for measuring blood pressure. A cross sectional study was conducted in school children from urban slums of Bangalore. Blood pressure was recorded according to standard guidelines using a mercury sphygmomanometer and an automated device (Datascope Duo). The readings obtained using the two instruments were compared. One thousand four hundred eighty nine school children, both males and females, aged 5-16 y were included in the study. Readings with the Datascope Duo varied significantly when compared to the gold standard. The blood pressure measurements using Datascope Duo cannot be recommended as an accurate substitute for manual readings.
