    Office blood pressure measurement alone often misclassifies treatment status in children with primary hypertension.
    Blood Press Monit 2017 Dec;22(6):328-332
    Department of Pediatrics, McGovern Medical School, University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston (UTHealth), Houston, Texas, USA.

    Objective: In the critically ill, the insertion of peripheral arterial catheters to monitor hemodynamics is a low-risk procedure, but carries the potential for complications. This study was designed to compare invasive and noninvasive blood pressure measurements in patients with septic shock in a medical ICU.

    Patients And Methods: We carried out a prospective observational study of patients admitted with septic shock and a radially inserted peripheral arterial catheter in the medical ICU with 31 adult patients who underwent four pairs of simultaneous noninvasive and invasive blood pressure measurements (124 comparisons), with the invasive blood pressure taken as the gold standard.
