Accuracy Study of a Non-Invasive Blood Pressure Cuff in Comparison to an Invasive Radial Arterial Blood Pressure

This study has been completed.

GE Healthcare Identifier:
First received: December 1, 2011
Last updated: February 28, 2012
Last verified: February 2012
The purpose of this study is to establish the performance of a blood pressure cuff. The hypothesis is that the blood pressure reading from the cuff will provide similar blood pressure as a radial artery.

Condition Intervention
Blood Pressure
Device: Blood pressure monitoring with GE Healthcare DASH4000 and Carescape V100

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: Open Label
Primary Purpose: Diagnostic
Official Title: Accuracy Study of a Non-Invasive Forearm Blood Pressure Cuff in Comparison to an Invasive Radial Arterial Blood Pressure

Further study details as provided by GE Healthcare:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Accuracy [ Time Frame: Study Completion ]
    The primary purpose of this clinical investigation is to evaluate the accuracy of the investigational BP cuff when used with the GE DASH 4000 Patient Bedside Monitor using DINAMAP SuperStat software and the Carescape V100 using DINAMAP CLASSIC software to a reference radial arterial line.

Enrollment: 34
Study Start Date: December 2011
Study Completion Date: December 2011
Primary Completion Date: December 2011 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Subjects requiring blood pressure monitoring Device: Blood pressure monitoring with GE Healthcare DASH4000 and Carescape V100
BP readings with marketed cuff with DASH4000 or V100 Patient Monitor and BP readings with Investigational BP cuff and DASH4000 Patient Monitor and V100 Patient Monitor
