BP-AccuGard

Oscillometric blood pressure monitor


Includes built-in display and optional Bluetooth computer link!

Vmed uses SunTech Medical Advantage Vet Software which performed significantly better and with less variability than Cardell and Critikon Dinamap monitors on awake and anesthetized cats when compared to the Doppler reference in a controlled study at the North Carolina Stale University College of Veterinary Medicine .  Performance on awake and anesthetized dogs was comparable for all three monitors.

BP-AccuGard is a digital oscillometric blood pressure monitor optimized for small animals. Oscillometric devices measure the oscillation of the vessel wall as the cuff is deflated. The BP- AccuGard uses sophisticated algorithms to calculate the blood pressure measurements from these oscillations based on the pressure in the cuff. While all oscillometric devices have limitations, especially with patient movement and the relatively small size of arteries in small animals, the BP-AccuGard software is successful in significantly reducing motion artifacts, resulting in fast, accurate measurements.  Accurate measurements have been obtained on patients as small as 1.5 kg under anesthesia.  Includes manual and automatic modes for diagnostic and surgical applications. In manual mode the measurement cycle is started each time a measurement is desired. Automatic mode allows repeat measurements taken at user defined intervals. Motion tolerant software reduces the compute time for awake animals without compromising accuracy. BP-AccuGard offers superior, animal validated, motion tolerant technology for fast, accurate measurements in animals as small as 1.5 kg.  Measure systolic, diastolic, MAP and heart rate and with a single key stroke, automatically calculate mean measurements over several readings for best accuracy. Use as a stand-alone blood pressure monitor or include the optional PC-Display software and Bluetooth wireless link to display measurements, real-time blood pressure waveforms and a trend graph on your computer screen. PC-Display software stores all measurements for the surgical or diagnostic record. When used in the automatic mode and in conjunction with the PC-Display software, measurements are saved to file for a record of pressures through the procedure. Files saved to the computer can be attached to patient records in most practice management programs. Reports can be printed from your computer or network printer or automatically attached to an E-mail message.

Applications

  • Use in manual mode to screen for hypertension in the exam room.
  • Record BP routinely for patients where hypertension is secondary to disease and for all patients with visual problems and all critically ill patients.
  • Use in automatic mode for surgery.
  • Select specific measurement cycles and alarm limits for systolic, diastolic, MAP and heart rate. Alarms can be easily silenced by pressing the silence alarm button.

Bluetooth Computer Link

The optional Bluetooth hardware and PC-Display software provide a wireless connection between the AccuGard and your computer allowing the computer to function as a convenient patient monitor. The computer displays digital measurements as well as waveforms for the measurement cycle, pressure oscillations and a trend graph. Measurements appear simultaneously on the AccuGard. Bluetooth signals are omnidirectional and operate free of signal interference in the clinic. Range is reduced when transmission is through walls or between floors.
