From a partnership between the Department of Health of the State of Bahia (Sesab) and Baiano Institute of Metrology and Quality (Ibametro), all tensiometers (unit of pressure) used in the units of the state of health will be assessed. The goal is to ensure the quality of equipment and thus avoid misdiagnosis.

The work will start next Monday (3), in the Central Warehouse Sesab (en). Initially, the technicians will evaluate the tensiometers Ibametro new, stored in the warehouse. These devices will replace those in use in the units, which in turn will be collected to be checked also.

Proper maintenance of tensiometers, according to the director of the Market Regulation Ibametro, Edson Sales, ensures its smooth operation. "Otherwise, it is risky to use them for diagnosis of the patient since the measuring result would probably not reflect the reality" shows.

Director Technology Sesab, Handerson Milk, explains that there are studies showing that the misdiagnosis of people with normal blood pressure (normotensive) and hypertensives, costs the healthcare system about U.S. $ 50.00 between the complementary exams and consumption drugs.

In situations where the diagnosis of hypertension is made erroneously, as normotensive, the problem is even more serious, and making it impossible to assess the costs to the health system, because hypertension is prevalent pathology in cases of myocardial infarction, stroke brain injury, chronic kidney disease, among others.
