The Automatic Sphygmomanometer
The word sphygmomanometer is understandably not so easy to pronounce. In short sphygmomanometers are also known as manometers. The automatic or electronic manometer is by far the most used today across all sectors of society. It is by far a less manual piece of blood pressure equipment performing automatic functions such as automatic cuff inflation. It also does other sophisticated functions that the other traditional two manometers can not do such as irregular heartbeat detection as well as morning hypertension detection. These two functions are extremely important in modern day hypertension management and hypertension treatment. This information is used by medical professionals together with hypertension symptoms to better deal with the disease and better understand the causes of high blood pressure in a particular patient.
Leading blood pressure machines suppliers would include the Omron blood pressure monitors series, Samsung monitors, Relion, Sunbeam, Panasonic and many others which are all Omron blood pressure monitors. Automatic digital sphygmomanometers use batteries and rather sophisticated software and have to meet internationally recognised and respected hypertension measurement validation protocols such those provided by the British Hypertension Society (BHS), the European Society for Hypertension (ESH) and the Association of Medical Instrumentation (AAMI). These organisations also issue very important hypertension guidelines on a regular basis.
Automatic blood pressure equipment available today is portable, user friendly and digitally minimises errors. It is very popular with a modern generation of high blood pressure patients. For example in 2009 Omron Healthcare co. Ltd the manufacturers of the Omron brand of digital blood pressure machines celebrated a new 100 million milestone of monitors sold since 1973 when the first digital monitor arrived on the market.
Digital blood pressure cuffs come in sizes that fit a whole spectrum of patient population in an effort to increase user comfort and eliminate reading errors associated with improperly fitting cuffs. Cuff sizes range from regular which is between 9" and 13" and large sized ranging between 13" and 17". Automatic sphygmomanometers not only include arm cuffs but also wrist cuffs and finger blood pressure monitors.See also:
