SunTech’s Customizable BP Averaging allows clinicians to automate the process of taking and averaging multiple office BP measurements, while setting their own averaging protocol that fits best into their practice workflow. The device also allows users to verify automated readings using a stethoscope without removing the cuff for consistent patient BP measurements.

The SunTech CT40 connects to a network via Ethernet or optional Wi-Fi, and uses industry standard IHE profiles to facilitate communication of patient information and measurement data with the EMR system. The device’s built-in memory can store up to 99 vital signs charting sessions and users can also easily document patient’s measurements electronically to avoid transcription errors.

A robust mobile stand is available to facilitate room-to-room relocation. A barcode reader option is available for easy data entry, as well as a thermal printer for hard copies of vital signs measurements.
