Blood Press Monit. 2018 Oct;23(5):277-80. Epub: 2018 Jul 9. doi: 10.1097/MBP.0000000000000341. PMID: 29994925.

BHS:1993 Pregnancy, arm circumference 24 cm to 32 cm (n=36) (Note: Confusingly, the results would suggest that the device should have an A/A grade but this is not stated in the paper and no reason is provided for the omission.)

BHS:1993 Pregnancy, arm circumference 33 cm to 43 cm (n=36) (Note: Confusingly, the device appears to pass with an A/A grade but this is not stated in the paper and no reason is provided for the omission.)

Even though the study is stated to have been carried out according to the BHS protocol, the BHS grades are omitted. Means and standard deviations are provided and the device is recommended but there is no reference as to the basis for this recommendation. These are serious anomalies that should have been resolved during the review process. Without this resolution, the hypothesis that the results are invalid cannot be rejected.

Validation Publications for Equivalent Devices:

Note: This is a provisional list, as equivalence according to EU Regulation 2017/745 (e.g. MEDDEV 2.7/1 rev 4) is not proven. Accordingly, these publications are not used in the assessment of star-ratings.

Ad Hoc protocol General population (Note: The results indicate a failure but, without a formal protocol and with violations, to the ISO protocols, they cannot be applied fairly.)

Validation under the "Universal Protocol" is claimed, though only the consensus document and not the subsequent protocol is referenced. Only Criterion 1 results are provided.
