Non-invasive Blood Pressure (NBP) Measurement


The Measurement Server has a non-invasive blood pressure measurement for the Monitor
monitoring device. It is designed to be used with adult, paediatric, or neonatal patients, in
ICU and OR environments.


The measurement produces numerics for the systolic, diastolic, and mean blood pressure
values. No wave is associated with this measurement.
Three different methods can be used to obtain the measurements, as follows:
• Manual—For each request, one measurement of systolic, diastolic, and mean pressures is
• Auto—Repeated measurements of the three values are taken at timed intervals specified by
the user.
• Stat—Measurements of the three values are taken immediately and repeatedly over a
period of five minutes. This method uses a faster measurement procedure but produces a
less accurate reading.
