About Spirare 24-hour blood pressure
Spirare 24-hour blood pressure monitoring gives access to previous patient data and
offers a graphical view of the patient’s profile over time. A tidy user interface gives a
choice between all readings and a list of key figures like average and
maximum values. The blood pressure profile is analyzed according to the stated limits.
The system can be used for short time readings at the doctor’s office (20-30 min.) or
for long time readings at home (24-48 hours).
Blood pressure monitoring at the doctor’s office
The monitor can be programmed to do readings every five or ten minutes, giving a series of automatic readings while the patient is relaxing in the waiting room. The results can then be transferred to the doctor’s PC. The system is suitable for a variety of tests, such as the Schellong test and the tilt test.
Ambulatory blood pressure monitoring 24-48 hour
The patient carries the monitor for 24 to 48 hours in different environments with different stress levels, and at different parts of the day. This gives a set of daytime readings, an indication if the pressure is lowered at night, and it is possible to follow the rise of pressure in the morning after waking up.
The monitor measures the blood pressure at regular intervals, resulting in a detailed blood pressure profile that allows the physician to give an optimal treatment of the patient.The Spirare ABPM system may help to eliminate sources of error, such as "white coat hypertension" and "masked hypertension".
