OBJECTIVE: The validation of sphygmomanometer is important in accurate blood pressure measurement. This study presents the validation results by the Medipro MediCare 100f upper arm blood pressure monitor according to the European Society of Hypertension International Protocol (ESH-IP) revision 2010. METHODS: The ESH-IP revision 2010 for the validation of blood pressure measuring devices in adults was followed precisely. A total of 99 couples of test device and reference blood pressure measurements were obtained during the study (three pairs for each of the 33 participants). RESULTS: The device produced 73, 93, and 98 measurements within 5, 10, and 15 mmHg for systolic blood pressure (SBP) and 79, 93, and 96 for diastolic blood pressure (DBP), respectively. The mean standard deviation device-observer difference was 1.4±5.2 mmHg for SBP and 0.02±5.8 mmHg for DBP. The number of participants with two or three of the device-observer differences within 5 mmHg was 24 for SBP and 30 for DBP, whereas there was no participant with none of the device-observer differences within 5 mmHg. CONCLUSION: According to the results of the validation study based on the ESH-IP revision 2010, the Medipro MediCare 100f can be recommended for self-measurement in an adult population.
