Question


  1. What is the comparative clinical effectiveness of automated blood pressure monitoring versus manual blood pressure monitoring in patients in pre-hospital settings?

  2. What is the comparative clinical effectiveness of automated cardiac monitoring versus manual cardiac monitoring in patients in pre-hospital settings?

  3. What are the evidence-based guidelines regarding the use of automated or manual blood pressure monitoring and automated or manual cardiac monitoring in patients in pre-hospital settings?


Key Message

Two evidence-based guidelines were identified regarding the use of automated or manual cardiac monitoring in patients in pre-hospital settings. No relevant literature was identified regarding the use of automated or manual blood pressure monitoring, or the comparative clinical effectiveness of automated versus manual monitoring for either cardiac symptoms or blood pressure in patients in pre-hospital settings.
