Further study details as provided by GE Healthcare:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Comparison of early systolic, systolic, and diastolic blood pressure, MAP and pulse rate as collected by an investigational non-invasive blood pressure device versus reference standards [ Time Frame: 1-4 hours ]

Estimated Enrollment: 40
Study Start Date: November 2001
Estimated Study Completion Date: December 2009
Estimated Primary Completion Date: December 2009 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Intervention Details:
    Device: Non invasive blood pressure monitor
    Updated device and software to improve performance in patients with dysrhythmia

Ages Eligible for Study:   Child, Adult, Senior
Sexes Eligible for Study:   All
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   Yes

Inclusion Criteria:

  • signed informed consent
  • a patient who is undergoing a specialized procedure such as a surgical procedure or cardiac catheterization, or during critical care monitoring in which a central arterial catheter is in place to determine systolic, diastolic, and/or mean arterial blood pressure values.
  • ability to monitor ECG, NIBP and/or pulse oximetry
  • presence of atrial fibrillation, atrial flutter, or normal sinus rhythm

Exclusion Criteria:

  • any subject deemed too unstable, at the clinician's discretion, to participate in the study
  • any subject with a cardiac or vascular malformation that results in an abnormal waveform inappropriate to be considered a reference standard
  • any subject with a cardiac anomaly that would cause a disparity between aortic pressures and the periphery.
  • presence of peripheral vascular disease in arms
  • inability to perform a minimum of 4 fast flushes (two at the study beginning and two at the study end) on an arterial catheter or line in order to determine a frequency response. The volume of fluid will not exceed a total pre-specified by the Principal Investigator or designee.
  • if the baseline arm to arm mean difference is > 10 mmHg, then the differences will be recorded and evaluated by the Principal Investigator for possible subject exclusion from the data analysis.
  • subjects who, at the clinician's discretion, could not tolerate approximately 5 to 12, but possibly up to 25 repeated blood pressures on each arm
