SunTech Medical, Inc. - the market leader in motion tolerant, Blood Pressure technology - is pleased to announce a collaborative effort with Mortara Instrument of Milwaukee, WI whereby Blood Pressure and Pulse Oximetry readings from the SunTech Tango+ automated monitor are directly interfaced to the Mortara X-Scribe Stress Exercise System display and final report outputs.
"This marks a new milestone in exercise stress testing and motion tolerant monitoring in that clinicians can now see the three major relevant clinical parameters in real time: ECG, BP and SPO2" stated Dayn McBee, CEO of SunTech Medical.
Justin L. Mortara, Ph.D. and Vice President of Mortara Instrument, Inc commented that "The display of pulse oximetry values measured by the SunTech monitor in the X-Scribe system will simplify presentation of this additional clinical parameter during stress exercise. The interface provides clinicians a single screen to visualize electrocardiographic changes captured by the X-Scribe, as well as BP and SpO2 measurements from the SunTech Tango+."
The Mortara X-Scribe with integrated BP and SP02 parameters from the SunTech Tango+ monitor was displayed at the American College of Cardiology show in New Orleans from March 25 – 27. Support for display of BP and SpO2 parameters is now available with X-Scribe software version 3.0.
