What is PCM-50?
PCM50 measures continues NIBP in a safe, accurate and efficient way. With a
price tag similar to existing BP Monitors, it allows to perform constant
monitoring of BP for any patient admitted to the hospital, enabling early
diagnosis of shock/malignant hypertension as well as any clinically significant
Since it is not invasive and it uses a low bladder pressure (10-30 mmHg on
radial artery), it is comfortable enough to be used for a long period.
Suggested Clinical applications
PCM-50 can be used in operation theaters where A-Line is not used, 24h
monitoring for septic shock, dialysis, post operation, stress test, ABPM.
Coupled with ECG, diagnosis of Hypertension, for antihypertensive drug
Essential hemodynamic information
The PCM-50 can use the BP pulse waveform analysis to compute cardiac output,
central BP, augmentation Index, PWV and other hemodynamic parameters needed for
detecting any trend of deterioration in cardiovascular health. The BP
measurement is more accurate than NIBP, especially for children and obese
