Morrisville, NC — March 31, 2009 — SunTech Medical, Inc., a leading supplier of motion-tolerant blood pressure monitors and technology, announces the newest release of AccuWin Pro™ v3 ambulatory blood pressure monitoring (ABPM) software.
AccuWin Pro v3 software supports SunTech’s Oscar 2™ ambulatory blood pressure monitor. The release offers various upgrades including new compatibility features for Windows® Vista™ and integrated USB communications. The software also includes new features to assist with the process of analyzing and reporting on ABPM procedures such as time-slice period highlighting, medications memory auto-fill, and pre-programmed thresholds incorporating ESH and JNC7/AHA recognized standards.
“SunTech Medical is committed to improving the study of ambulatory blood pressure as it is a leading indicator of various forms of hypertension as well as a valuable tool for supporting the management of anti-hypertensive therapy.” explains Allison Anderson, Product Manager. “For example, the Time-Slice Period function allows the physician to zero in on key windows of interest in a 24 hour period to identify specific events such as morning surge and overnight variability, both key indicators for guiding the proper treatment of hypertension.”
SunTech’s clinical grade 24-hour ambulatory blood pressure monitor, Oscar 2, is designed to provide a true measure of patient blood pressure outside of the clinical environment. It is the only ABPM available that is clinically validated to all three internationally recognized standards: British Hypertension Society (BHS) (rating:A/A), European Society of Hypertension (ESH) International Protocol and the Association for the Advancement of Medical Instrumentation (AAMI) SP10. The included AccuWin Pro™ V3 software allows flexible programming of the ABPM unit, rapid analysis of the data and a customizable printed report.
