iPhone sphygmomanometer validated by Xian cardiologists

The iHealth BP3 upper-arm blood pressure monitor can be recommended for clinic use and self-measurement in an adult population, according to the results of a validation study on the basis of the European Society of Hypertension International Protocol revision 2010.
The study aimed to evaluate the performance of the iHealth BP3 upper-arm blood pressure monitor, which is designed for clinic use and self-measurement of blood pressure using Apple touch devices as an interface.
The European Society of Hypertension International Protocol (ESH-IP) revision 2010 for the validation of blood pressure measuring devices in adults was followed precisely. Ninty-nine couples of test device and reference blood pressure measurements were obtained during the study (three pairs for each of the 33 participants).
In 33 participants, the device passed all of the requirements fulfilling the standards of the protocol, and the mean device–observer difference was 2.8±4.2 mmHg for SBP and −0.4±3.5 mmHg for DBP.
