SunTech Medical's Oscar 2(TM) Ambulatory Blood Pressure Monitor Receives A/A Rating by BHS



    EYNSHAM, OXFORD, UNITED KINGDOM, April 9 /CNW/ - SunTech Medical's Oscar
2 24-hour ambulatory blood pressure monitor (ABP) monitor has received an A/A
rating based upon the British Hypertension Society (BHS) protocol as reported
in the April 2007 issue of Blood Pressure Monitoring (Goodwin et al., 2007).

    The independent evaluation was conducted in the United Kingdom by
researchers at James Cook University Hospital. Results showed the Oscar 2
ambulatory blood pressure monitor received an A grade for both systolic and
diastolic pressures.

    Considered the gold standard by many experts worldwide (Pickering et al.,
2006), ambulatory blood pressure monitoring provides a comprehensive
assessment of a patient's blood pressure profile. The use of an ambulatory
blood pressure monitor provides valuable information on BP variability,
overnight dipping and morning surge that in-clinic and home BP monitoring
cannot provide.

    The Oscar 2 ambulatory blood pressure monitor is clinically validated to
all three internationally recognized standards: British Hypertension Society
(BHS) (A/A), European Society of Hypertension (ESH) International Protocol,
and the Association for the Advancement of Medical Instrumentation (AAMI)
SP10. The sleek, lightweight design of the Oscar 2 ambulatory blood pressure
monitor combined with the comfort of SunTech's patented Orbit(TM) blood
pressure cuff dramatically increase patient testing compliance. The included
AccuWin Pro(TM) V3 software allows flexible programming of the ABP unit, rapid
analysis of the data, and a customizable printed report. The automated
interpretive summary provides concise and helpful information on BP averages,
overnight dip percentage, and instances of White-coat syndrome.
