Whilst 24-hour ABPM observation is routine, there are several shortcomings with the current generation of automated oscillometric measurement systems. The root of many of these shortcomings is in the use of traditional motor-driven diaphragm pumps, which are bulky, noisy, vibrate and introduce pulsation in the airflow. Disc Pump from TTP Ventus is a novel, piezoelectric micropump whose unique combination of features addresses many of the disadvantages of diaphragm pumps.
Tom Harrison, Business Development Manager at TTP Ventus, talks to Medgadget about the benefits of Disc Pump for ABPM - read the interview here: medgadget.com/2019/10/disc-pump-for-less-obtrusive-ambulatory-blood-pressure-systems.html
