A Comparison of the SunTech Medical Advantage™ Transport Motion Tolerant NIBP Technology vs. the Medtronic LIFEPAK 12 NIBP (CAS Medical)
SunTech Medical has developed an NIBP technology for EMS transport applications by focusing on the unique challenges of obtaining reliable blood pressure readings in the emergency transport environment. In order to fairly compare and separate available technologies, an evaluation of performance was completed in conditions typically encountered by EMS professionals.
To evaluate SunTech Medical’s Advantage Transport Motion Tolerant (TMT) technology, we conducted a comparative trial against the CAS motion tolerant NIBP technology included with the Medtronic LIFEPAK 12 defibrillator.
Assessment of systolic pressure, diastolic pressure and heart rate was comparable between the two systems, however, only the SunTech Medical Advantage with TMT technology produced a valid blood pressure result for each attempted reading while the LIFEPAK 12 failed to obtain a measurement on 9% of all attempts.
For complete NIBP performance and reliability in EMS transport applications, there is no better solution than the Advantage Transport Motion Tolerant (TMT) technology from SunTech Medical.
