Ambulatory oximeter & blood pressure monitor PM-50 is a wearable, overnight and comfortable patient monitor for adult, pediatric¹, and neonatal¹. PM50 is designed for spot check and ambulatory applications. The ambulatory patient monitor provides continuous 24-hour blood oxygen saturation levels and periodic blood pressure readings giving an accurate assessment of the patient's condition.
Ambulatory patient monitor PM-50 has the capable of recording up to 4800 measurements. The stored readings in the monitor can be saved in the computer for further analysis and archive. The software can generate various reports, including history data, trend graph, pie chart, and event statistics.
Ambulatory blood pressure monitoring has become a widely accepted method of blood pressure and heart rate evaluation. Although the technique provides only intermittent readings throughout the 24-hour period, average blood pressures obtained in this way correlate well with a variety of hypertensive disease processes and are also a better prognostic marker for future cardiovascular events than office blood pressure. Ambulatory blood pressure averages also correlate well with indices of diastolic dysfunction. In patients with congestive cardiac failure and systolic dysfunction, ambulatory monitoring suggests an impaired circadian blood pressure profile with high nocturnal blood pressure.
PM50 can be used to monitor one's pulse rate, blood pressure and oxygen saturation during exercise. This is especially important for patients with respiratory problems. The data would help the patient to pace his exercise and to monitor his progress.
Blood pressure can go up to 200/80 during running and 300/200 during very heavy weight lifting for a normal person. According to a study published in American Journal of Hypertension (April 2004), people with very high blood pressure during exercise are most likely to develop high blood pressure. They are likely to have arteries that do not expand as much as normal arteries when blood is pumped to them. Consider going into a program (diet and exercise) for heart attack prevention if you have high readings during exercise.
The ambulatory oximeter and blood pressure monitor has an alarm with configurable thresholds for SpO2, pulse rate, systolic and diastolic pressure.
During automatic measurement mode, the ambulatory blood pressure monitor can take measurements periodically at an interval specified in the system configuration.
See BPM cuff for more information on cuff sizes.
¹The included cuff and oximeter probe are for adults. The cuff is for limb sizes with 25 to 35cm in perimeter. Special cuff and oximeter probe may be required for infants, children and large adults.
