Continuous invasive arterial blood pressure (IABP) monitoring remains the accepted gold standard for blood pressure monitoring because of its high accuracy. Several disadvantages of this method motivate the use of noninvasive intermittent blood pressure (NIBP) in most anesthesia cases despite its lower accuracy and intermittent nature.
The numerical value of MAP Nexfin has accuracy superior to MAP NIBP, in addition to the obvious advantage of continuous measurement. The accuracy of the MAP Nexfin is stable over the course of the measurement (Figure 1) without requiring a long equilibration time, and with satisfactory accuracy for most procedures.
