Welch Allyn to Revolutionise Blood Pressure Monitoring with the Launch of New Universal FlexiPort? Blood Pressure Cuffs
Today, blood pressure monitoring becomes more streamlined with the launch of a new range of FlexiPort? Blood Pressure Cuffs, which connect to virtually any manual or electronic blood pressure device. This universal, cost effective solution has been developed by Welch Allyn, a leading manufacturer of frontline medical products and solutions.
Traditional blood pressure cuffs have tubing that is permanently attached to the cuff. There are one- and two-tube cuff versions and both styles must be purchased in a full range of different sizes. For the first time, FlexiPort provides a solution by allowing users to remove and attach the tubing on the cuff with a single universal connection point. This means that FlexiPort cuffs can be used on one and two tube devices interchangeably. The end results of FlexiPort technology are fewer part numbers reduced inventories, and easier ordering.
Furthermore, it's quicker and easier for nursing staff to locate the correct cuff to help ensure an accurate diagnosis is provided and reduce incorrect readings. The use of a cuff that is the incorrect size in relation to limb circumference can lead to errors of about 10mmHg but up to 30mmHg which increases the possibility of over or underestimating blood pressure1. Both of these conditions may lead to incorrect treatment for the patient.
So whether your patient requires their blood pressure to be taken with a spot check device, hand aneroid, or other device, the Welch Allyn FlexiPort Cuff fits all--solving the problem of hospitals needing to stock many different types of cuffs, because one style cuff can now accommodate virtually any blood pressure device!
The FlexiPort feature is available for both reusable and disposable cuffs. For more information on FlexiPort, or any other Welch Allyn products, please contact Welch Allyn on 0207 365 6780.
