    Study objective

    To assess agreement between two Takeda UA-731 automatic blood pressure measuring devices (referred to as machines A and B) and two manual mercury sphygmomanometers.


    A'Y'connector attached each Takeda UA-731 to a manual mercury sphygmomanometer.

    Simultaneous measurements were made on adult subjects.


    A population based cardiovascular disease survey in Newcastle upon Tyne, UK.


    Measurements on machine A were compared in 71 individuals (all women), and on machine B in 75 individuals (9 men, 66 women).

    The age range of subjects was 28 to 76 years and median ages were 59 years for machine A and 50 years for machine B. Main results - Blood pressure (mmHg) ranged from 72 to 212 systolic and 44 to 102 diastolic.

    Both Takedas gave significantly lower readings than the manual devices for systolic and diastolic pressures : differences were mean (SD : 95% CI) 3.7 mmHg (6.5 : 2.2,5.2) for machine A systolic, 2.3 mmHg (4.5 : 1.3,3.4) machine A diastolic ; 1.8 mmHg (6.2 : 0.4,3.3) machine B systolic, and 1.8 (4.4 : 0.8,2.8) machine B diastolic.

    On the British Hypertension Society criteria, machine A was graded C on systolic measurements and B on diastolic ; machine B was graded B on both systolic and diastolic measurements.


    The performance of these machines compares favourably with the Dinamap 8100, recently adopted for survey work by the Department of Health.

    The Takeda UA-731 looks promising for epidemiolo...
