Blood Pressure Monitor

Blood Pressure Monitor

Taking one’s blood pressure can clearly tell you a lot about your health. Ambulatory blood pressure monitoring provides a comprehensive assessment of a patient’s blood pressure profile with BP variability, overnight dipping and morning surge that in-clinic and home BP monitoring cannot provide.

The unit has just received an A/A rating based upon the British Hypertension Society (BHS) protocol as reported Blood Pressure Monitoring (Goodwin et al., 2007).

The independent evaluation was conducted in the United Kingdom by researchers at James Cook University Hospital. Results showed the ambulatory blood pressure monitor received an A grade for both systolic and diastolic pressures.

The ambulatory blood pressure monitor is clinically validated to all three internationally recognized standards: British Hypertension Society (BHS) (A/A), European Society of Hypertension (ESH) International Protocol, and the Association for the Advancement of Medical Instrumentation (AAMI) SP10. The lightweight design of the ambulatory blood pressure monitor combined with the comfort of SunTech’s patented Orbit blood pressure cuff dramatically increase patient testing compliance.
