They mentioned the lack of a gold standard in intra ocular pressure measurements but as all we know, the Goldmann applanation tonometer (GAT) is defined as the gold standard measurement method in a large number of studies.
They compared the average readings with previous routine blood pressure measurements. The results, reported in the Annals of Family Medicine, showed that mean systolic blood pressure when measured over 30 minutes was 22.8 mmHg (95% confidence interval (CI) 19.8-26.1) lower than the mean found on standard measurement.
Blood pressure measurement is one of the most common practices performed by health care professionals in everyday practice.

First, the Rosemount 3051S Thermal Range Expander with new UltraTherm 805 oil fill fluid enables pressure measurements by direct-mounting a diaphragm seal system to processes that reach temperatures up to 410 C [770 F] without requiring the challenging impulse piping or heat tracing used in traditional connection technology.
