SunTech Medical Launches Hemodialysis OEM NIBP Technology

SunTech Medical Launches Hemodialysis OEM NIBP Technology

MORRISVILLE, N.C. (PRWEB) April 21, 2008

    SunTech Medical recognized the need to address concerns over the accuracy of automated blood pressure measurements on hemodialysis patients. In response, they investigated an oscillometric blood pressure technology for end-stage renal disease (ESRD) patients during hemodialysis. The results provide a break-through in clinical-grade accuracy for non-invasive automated blood pressure measurement on ESRD patients.

Although recommended, current validation protocols and guidelines do not require blood pressure monitors to be validated on specific patient populations. Consequently, most are validated on readily available healthy volunteers. In this regard, special efforts were made by focusing not only on ESRD patients, but in the environment for which the technology was intended by performing the evaluation during dialysis treatment. This makes SunTech Medical the only current provider of OEM NIBP technology validated for use during hemodialysis treatment.

SunTech Medical wishes to thank the patients and staff at Dr. Georges-L. Dumont Regional Hospital Nephrology Center (Moncton, New Brunswick, Canada). The study was approved by both Health Canada and the Hospital's ethics review board. All subjects were adult volunteers with ESRD currently receiving hemodialysis treatment.
