Digital Blood Pressure Device now Available in U.S. and Canada

January 4, 2011 – An automated, digital blood pressure device is now available in the United States and Canada. The Connex ProBP 3400, from Welch Allyn, fits in the palm of the hand and provides a portable option for capturing reliable blood pressure readings in virtually any hospital or primary care environment.

It can also communicate patient data to many popular EHR/EMR software programs.

“In today’s demanding healthcare environment, providers sometimes need a single, simple and easy-to-use blood pressure device that can capture readings quickly, easily and accurately,” said Lari Shreffler, global product marketing manager. “Our new Connex ProBP handheld digital blood pressure device with SureBP measures on inflation, providing the speed and accuracy typically found in trusted devices clinicians use every day. Its versatility and intuitive design help providers avoid many of the situations that can lead to inaccurate measurements.”

With traditional manual devices, improper technique can lead to wide variations in blood pressure readings, which could potentially affect assessment. The Connex ProBP 3400 works with the push of a button and uses technology from proven multiparameter devices. It also features Bluetooth wireless capability and USB cable-wired connectivity.

The device can also be wheeled on a mobile stand or secured to the wall. It is also compatible with a wide range of FlexiPort cuff sizes for quick and easy cuff changes. It also features a rechargeable lithium ion battery that provides at least 100 readings between charges, and the blood pressure function has been tested to last 150,000 cycles, meaning fewer interruptions to patient care. The device also retains up to 50 readings in its memory.
