A surrogate arm, containing an artificial artery, has been developed for evaluating the accuracy of automatic, non-invasive, blood-pressure measuring devices. The surrogate arm produces all of the events associated with the auscultatory and oscillometric methods of measuring blood pressure. The surrogate arm includes a flat artificial artery in a plastic cylindrical chamber, 30 cm in circumference and 25 cm long, that contains an air/water mixture that allows matching the compliance of the… CONTINUE READING
