Non-invasive sphygmomanometers - Part 1: Requirements and test methods for non-automated measurement type (ISO 81060-1:2007); German version EN ISO 81060-1:2012
Nicht invasive Blutdruckmessgeräte - Teil 1: Anforderungen und Prüfverfahren der nicht-automatisierten Bauart (ISO 81060-1:2007); Deutsche Fassung EN ISO 81060-1:2012
This part of ISO 81060 specifies requirements for non-automated, non-invasive sphygmomanometers and their accessories, which, by means of inflatable cuffs, are used for the non-invasive blood pressure measurement by operator observation. It specifies requirements for the safety and essential performance, including effectiveness and labelling, for non-automated sphygmomanometers and their accessories, including test methods to determine the accuracy of non-invasive blood pressure measurement. It covers non-invasive blood pressure measurement devices with a pressure-sensing element and display used in conjunction with means of detecting blood flow, for example, a stethoscope for detecting Korotkoff sounds, Doppler ultrasound or other manual methods. The clinical investigation of non-invasive sphygmomanometers of automated measurement type is dealt with in ISO 81060-2. Requirements for non-invasive blood pressure measurement equipment with electrically-powered pressure sensing elements and/or displays used in conjunction with other automatic methods determining blood pressure are specified in DIN EN 80601-2-30 (VDE 0750-2-30). Requirements for invasive blood pressure measurement equipment that directly measure blood pressure are specified in document DIN EN 60601-2-34 (VDE 0750-2-34). This part of ISO 81060 is a product standard which is directed at manufacturers and test institutes. The committee responsible for this standard is NA 027-02-14 AA "Nichtinvasive Blutdruckmessgeräte" ("Non-invasive sphygmomanometers") at DIN.
