Non-invasive sphygmomanometers – Part 3: Supplementary requirements for electro-mechanical blood pressure measuring systems
|Publication Date:||30 November 2009|
|ICS Code (Diagnostic equipment):||11.040.55|
This Part of EN 1060 specifies performance, efficiency and safety requirements for electro-mechanical blood pressure measuring systems that, by means of an inflatable cuff are used for non-invasive measurements of arterial blood pressure at the upper arm, the wrist and the thigh. It also specifies requirements for their accessories and gives test methods. This Part of EN 1060 applies to electro-mechanical blood pressure measuring systems in which the cuff pressure is measured electronically, but in which the blood pressure can be determined either manually with the aid of a stethoscope or automatically. Additional safety requirements for automatic cycling indirect blood pressure monitoring equipment are specified in EN 60601-2-30:1995. This Part of EN 1060 is to be used in conjunction with EN 1060-1.
