SunTech Medical's blood pressure technology (OEM NIBP) provides Xtreme Everest with vital blood pressure data
Morrisville, NC, USA - January 21, 2008
The Caudwell Xtreme Everest Team has returned from their expedition to the peak of Mount Everest and has begun reviewing data collected at extreme altitudes in hopes to improve treatment for intensive care patients.
SunTech Medical, in co-operation with Cortex Biophysik GmbH, provided the Caudwell Xtreme Everest team with non-invasive blood pressure (OEM NIBP) technology for measuring blood pressure during extreme exercise at a series of high-altitude laboratories. The team hoped to replicate the low oxygen levels that intensive care patients encounter with the similarly low oxygen levels on Mount Everest. They believe their findings may help improve patient care for a number of life-threatening conditions.
