Abstract BACKGROUND: Two devices for self-measurement of blood pressure at the brachial artery-the Omron M5-I and the Omron 705IT-were evaluated according to the international protocol of the European Society of Hypertension. DESIGN: The international validation protocol is divided into two phases: the first phase is performed on 15 selected subjects and if the device passes this phase, 18 supplementary subjects are included making a total number of 33 subjects on which the final validation is performed. METHODS: For each subject, four blood pressure (BP) measurements were performed simultaneously by two trained observers using mercury sphygmomanometers alternately with three measurements by the tested device. The difference between the BP value given by the device and that obtained by the two observers (mean of the two observers) was calculated for each measure. The 99 differences were classified into categories (
