Medical diagnostic equipment and instruments must deliver highly reliable and accurate data about a person's vital signs to provide doctors and medical personnel with the best possible data so they can accurately diagnose health issues.  The greatest challenge lies in handling the low-level vital signs. In addition to ensuring the lowest possible power consumption for battery-powered equipment, manufacturers of medical devices or sensors must guarantee that data gathered is stored and exchanged in a highly secured fashion to meet increasing concerns, and associated regulation, on data privacy that is even more critical for diagnostic information.

Blood Pressure Monitor

Blood pressure meters (BPM) estimate a person’s blood pressure by measuring the pressure in occluding cuff and then calculating systolic and diastolic pressure values using algorithms based on statistical data and/or neural network methodologies. BPM
