The SunTech CT40 provides clinical-grade, automated spot-check measurements of blood pressure and other vital signs for patients in hospitals, clinics, ambulatory care, long-term care and low-acuity hospital departments. A modular design allows clinicians to easily customize the device in the field; adding thermometry, Sp02 and Wi-Fi based on the unique needs of the patient and facility.

The study, conducted independently by Dr. Hernan Polo Fritz and the staff at Vimercate Hospital (Vimercate, Italy) determined that the CT40 achieved an A/A grade according to the 1993 BHS protocol, and fulfilled requirements set by the AAMI/ ISO standard 81060-2:2013. The study confirmed the accuracy of oscillometric BP measurements taken by the CT40, and recommend it for BP measurement in adults.

“This study validates the accuracy and reliability of our BP technology,” said SunTech Medical president Rob Sweitzer. “We are proud that our CT40 has received a third-party validation for both BHS and AAMI/ ISO standards.”

Full study results will be published in the October issue of Journal Blood Pressure Monitoring, and on the journal’s website here: http://journals.lww.com/bpmonitoring/Abstract/2017/10000/Simultaneous_validation_of_the_SunTech_CT40.4.aspx.

Device provides automated BP, temperature and Sp02 results with superior accuracy

Morrisville, NC (July 13, 2016) – Blood pressure technology expert SunTech Medical has received FDA clearance for U.S. distribution of its next generation spot-check vital signs device – the SunTech CT40. Driven by SunTech’s clinical-grade Advantage™ BP technology,the new spot-check vital signs device provides accurate and reliable automated measurements of blood pressure, temperature and pulse oximetry with clinical-grade performance, advanced features and digital connectivity.

Suntech, CT-40 Spot -Check Device

CT-40 Spot Check Device provides automatic BP, temperature and SpO2

The instrument’s modular design allows clinicians to easily make adaptations to the device, enabling them to add thermometry, SpO2 and Wi-Fi while in the field and based solely on the needs of their patient. Available modules include Covidien’s FILAC 3000 thermometry and Masimo’s SET® Sp02 technology for market-leading performance.

Another feature of the device is SunTech’s Customizable BP Averaging. BP averaging is a key component to accurate blood pressure measurement and used in the recent SPRINT trial conducted by the National Institute of Health (NIH). It is rapidly becoming the new standard of care, with improved accuracy and reduced white coat response. 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.
