The Tango M2 Stress Test Monitor gives you the confidence to know that patient movement, mechanical vibration and observer variability won’t interfere with an accurate reading. Your focus can be where it matters most - on your patient.
Whether performing a test using a treadmill, ergometer, or pharmacological stress testing, the Tango M2 reliably monitors blood pressure allowing you to focus on your patient. The Tango M2 was specifically designed to overcome noise, motion and physical difficulties associated with cardiac stress and exercise testing. You can even pair it with a hands-free interface and add the SpO2 measurement option to make the Tango M2 a seamless cardiac testing center.
During stress testing, reliability and accuracy go hand-in-hand. Recording an accurate and reliable BP measurement at the correct intervals during a test can be difficult and stressful for clinicians and lab technicians. That’s why the Tango M2 can be programmed to take an accurate reading at the proper time and initiate readings at the precise moment during each stage, increasing reliability of the measurements. Designed to be used with our Orbit-K Cuff , the Tango M2 utilizes our proprietary DKA algorithm, which provides exceptional performance in the difficult environment of the stress lab.
With the Tango M2, you can count on us to deliver:
Seamless Integration: Automated communication with your stress system reduces the risk of transcription errors.
Non-Exercise BP Mode: Allows BP measurement during patient set-up and recovery without an ECG signal.
Stat Mode: Rapidly repeated automatic BP measurements for time sensitive and emergent situations.
Color LCD: Improved usability with a new 7" color LCD display.
Verified Measurements: See & hear the Korotkoff sounds using the onscreen display and the included headphones.
Data Retrieval: Easier troubleshooting with 300 BP reading history and USB capabilities for measurement retrieval.
Field Upgrades: USB port allows for field upgrades, making sure end-users always have the current software.

The Tango M2 monitor returns a result of 0/0 after blood pressure (BP) measurements. What do I need to do to get a BP reading?
There are certain noisy conditions where the Tango M2 cannot accurately measure BP. When the Tango M2 encounters these situations, it returns a reading of 0/0. Microphone placement is critical for reliable operation of the Tango M2; there are many places to find cuff placement help.
- See the eLibrary within your Tango M2 for quick cuff placement tutorials. You can find the eLibrary under the Main Menu; select Monitor Setup >E-Library > Tutorials.
- Look in the Tango M2 User Manual under the Using Tango M2 during a Stress Test section for details on each type of cuff; the Orbit-K and the Single Patient Use (SPU) kit.
- Follow the instructions in the Cuff Tutorial (located on the SunTech Medical website under Support > Product Training & Tutorials) for correct microphone placement.

Can I use a heart rate or blood pressure simulator to test whether the Tango M2 is working correctly with my stress system?
You cannot use a heart rate or blood pressure simulator to test whether the Tango M2 is working with your stress system. The Tango M2 monitor requires that the ECG signal and the Korotkoff sounds, collected by the microphone in the cuff, originate from the same source, meaning the patient.
How do I clean the Orbit-K cuff after a stress test?
You can do either of the following:
- Use a medical grade mild disinfectant wipe on the cuff or spray a cleaning solution onto a cloth and wipe the cuff. Afterwards, lay flat or line dry.
- Remove the bladder and microphone from the outer shell of the Orbit-K cuff. Machine wash the shell in warm water with a mild detergent (50-140°F or 10-60°C). Lay flat or line dry the cuff. Do not place the cuff in a dryer.

My Tango M2 displays a message, “Please VERIFY CALIBRATION” or “Equipment Maintenance and Calibration Required.” What do I do?
Verification of Pressure Calibration is required every year to maintain the accuracy of the Tango M2’s BP readings. You will need to contact the SunTech Medical Service Center for help. In addition, the following items will be needed to verify calibration.
- Calibrated electronic manometer or equivalent.
- 500mL volume or the Orbit-K Adult Plus cuff wrapped around something that will not break or crush (no glass).
- Hand Inflation Bulb with bleed valve.
- Tubing, Tee pieces, and miscellaneous connectors or you can order the T-Tube Kit (SunTech Part # 98-0030-00).
