Hello,

I am trying to calculate z-scores for patient-specific average blood-pressure (BP). I have come up with the following formula but I would like to confirm it is correct.

Z= (x-µ)/(σ/√(n))

Where

x = patient-specific average BP

µ = all patients’ average BP

σ = all patients’ BP standard deviation

n = number of measurements taken for the calculation of the patient-specific average BP (x). This might not be the same number for every patient.

Thanks,
