Calibrationhouse offers a comprehensive blood pressure simulator calibration Service to a wide variety of customers in the healthcare sector. Blood pressure simulators essentially test the performance and accuracy of blood pressure monitors that connect directly to patients. The blood pressure simulator calibration Service is proving a really popular offering and forms a wider part of our larger medical equipment calibration Service offered both on-site at your premises and back at our state of the art facility in County Durham. The accuracy of these instruments is of paramount importance as slight inaccuracies in measurements and analysis can lead to incorrect diagnosis of patient’s blood pressure and administration of relevant treatments.
