Description: The Dinamap 8100 is a clinically validated automatic blood pressure monitor. Measurements are taken from the upper arm and it is intended for bedside patient monitoring.

The technology used in the Dinamap 8100, to measure blood pressure, has passed in a clinical validation study, in a specific population, according to a recognised standard protocol, but has failed in a validation study, in a general population, also according to a recognised standard protocol, as published in a peer-reviewed publications. It has also been assessed, in a general population, according to a non-standard protocol.
