WC-BPM - Wearable Cuffless Blood Pressure Monitors

The intent of this standard revision is to establish objective performance evaluation of wearable, cuffless blood pressure (BP) measuring devices. The standard is independent of the form of the device or the vehicle to which the device is attached or in which it is embedded. The standard is applicable to all types of wearable BP measurement devices that have different modes of operation (e.g., to measure short-term, long-term, snapshot, continuous, beat(s)-to-beat(s) BP, or BP variability). This standard is, however, limited to evaluation of devices that do not use a cuff during measurement and does not cover evaluation of all sphygmomanometers that are used with an occluding or inflatable cuff for the indirect determination of BP on the upper arm or wrist.
The intent of this amendment is to (1) clarify further the subject selection of sample size of 45 in the clinical study, (2) look into the results of the validation study with respect to the patient's body position and activity level for their applicability to ambulatory patients, and (3) address the issue of motion artifact.
