The device produced 78, 95 and 99 measurements within 5, 10, and 15 mm Hg for SBP and 83, 96, and 99 for DBP, respectively.The average device–observer difference was −1.81±4.22 mm Hg for SBP and −0.15±3.93 mm Hg for DBP.The aim of the present study was to validate the Grandway MD2301 digital automatic blood pressure monitor according to the European Society of Hypertension International Protocol (ESH-IP) revision 2010.The ESH-IP revision 2010 for the validation of blood pressure-measuring devices in adults was followed precisely.
