Blood Pressure Cuffs (BP Cuffs)

Overview

For over 20 years, SunTech Medical® has focused solely on the continual advancement of blood pressure measurement technologies for challenging and complex clinical environments. As automated monitors have become routine for blood pressure measurement, it is important to remember that the blood pressure cuff is the sensor. With this in mind, we have applied our expertise to engineer high-quality, clinical-grade blood pressure cuffs designed for consistent and accurate measurement for the widest variety of clinical applications and environments.

SunTech Medical’s Blood Pressure Cuff Line includes:

  • Disposable BP Cuffs – Soft, single-patient, tapered-end disposable blood pressure cuff with a patient ID line to minimize cross-contamination for infection-control conscious hospitals.
  • Durable BP Cuffs– Long-lasting, durable, easy to clean, tapered-end for general-use clinical applications, line includes.
  • Eclipse D-Ring BP Cuffs – Durable and robust blood pressure cuff designed specifically for home monitoring and self-application environments.
  • Orbit BP Cuffs – Patented blood pressure cuff designed specifically for patient comfort and promoting patient compliance for extended Ambulatory Blood Pressure Monitoring (ABPM) applications.
  • Orbit-K BP Cuffs – Patented blood pressure cuff designed to ensure repeatable and reliable blood pressure readings during Cardiac Stress and Exercise testing applications.

Show Abstract
Healthcare associated infections or HAIs, (also known as “hospital-acquired” infections or “nosocomial” infections), are bacterial infections that patients acquire while receiving treatment for other conditions within a healthcare setting.
More than 70% of the bacterial infections that cause HAIs are resistant to at least one of the drugs commonly used to treat these infections.3 The three most troublesome forms of HAIs are: Methicillinresistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA), Vancomycin-Resistant Enterococci (VRE), and Clostridium Difficile (C. diff). There is also a newly discovered bacteria called New Delhi metallo-ß-lactamase-1 (NDM-1) that has shown to be resistant to all know antibiotics at this time.6 These antibioticresistant pathogens are not only creating an important and growing threat to the public health, they are also imposing significant economic consequences on healthcare systems worldwide.

Most people do not realize their blood pressure is constantly changing minute by minute in response to mood, activity, body position, etc. In fact, simple changes in your body, environment, and activities significantly impact your blood pressure and cause your blood pressure to fluctuate between 5 and 40 mmHg. It is important for medical professionals and patients to know factors that can temporarily cause significant deviations in blood pressure measurements to avoid misdiagnosis of hypertension and inappropriate prescriptions of anti-hypertension medications. Below is a list of 10 factors that can temporarily cause significant deviations in your blood pressure measurements.
