The document covers two topics concerning systemic arterial blood pressure in humans. The first topic is objective measurement and analysis of systemic arterial pulses. The second topic is objective measurement of systemic arterial blood pressure. Adaptations, extensions, and connections to existing standards (IEEE 181-2003, IEEE 1073-2000) are considered enabling seamless integration of blood pressure measurement (BPM) with clinical data recording (electronic health monitoring). The standard considers only objective techniques for BPM assuring that the measurement process satisfies the current standards for evaluating and expressing the uncertainty of the measurement results along with traceability, down to the device that was actually used to transduce the signal.
