January 17, 2017 — The new SunTech Oscar 2 24-hour ambulatory blood pressure monitoring system (ABPM) is now available with the True24 ABPM Patient Diary mobile app, which links to the Oscar 2 via Bluetooth. The True24 app provides a tutorial on ABPM, and prompts the patient to enter information about their activity, posture or any symptoms experienced during a physician-prescribed ABPM study. This diary information helps clinicians interpret the ambulatory blood pressure study data to make well-informed hypertension treatment decisions.

SunTech Oscar 2 is also available with the SphygmoCor Inside technology from AtCor Medical to measure central blood pressure. AtCor Medical’s patented sub-diastolic waveform measurement provides a fully-featured physiological waveform for the most detailed data and accurate augmentation index in all patients 18 and older.

The Oscar 2 comes standard with SunTech’s proprietary motion tolerance technology, which eliminates failed readings and repeated studies caused by motion-related artifacts. The device uses the SunTech Medical-patented Orbit cuff, designed specifically to provide compliance, reliability and patient comfort during ABPM use. The Oscar 2 is powered by the newly redesigned AccuWin Pro 4 software for efficient programming and analysis.
