PROJECT OVERVIEW / 18RPT02 adOSSIG

Developing an infrastructure for improved and harmonised metrological checks of blood-pressure measurements in Europe

Hypertension affects almost half of the European population and is responsible for 13 % of all non-accidental deaths. Hypertension increases the probability of stroke, heart attack and kidney diseases, causing over 22 % of all heart attacks. Reliable and accurate BP measurements taken by sphygmomanometers (SMs) are indispensable in the diagnostics of hypertension.  
This project aims to improve the reliability and accuracy of blood pressure (BP) measurements by developing an advanced oscillometric signal generator (aOSG) and by establishing new calibration procedures and services for blood pressure metrology. Furthermore, the project will establish a competence centre for blood pressure metrology and create a network for blood pressure metrology consisting of national metrology institutes, designated institutes, surveillance bodies and medical professionals.
