- Practice audits: reliability of sphygmomanometers and blood pressure recording bias. Ali, S.; Rouse, A. // Journal of Human Hypertension;May2002, Vol. 16 Issue 5, p359
It is well established that numerous errors, biases and omissions in recording blood pressure exist. This study had two objectives. Firstly, to measure the accuracy of sphygmomanometers used in general practice and secondly to assess digit bias in blood pressure recording. This study was carried...
