DynaPulse 5000A (Mini)
Ambulatory Blood Pressure Monitor
The Dynapulse 5000A Ambulatory Blood Pressure Monitor offers researchers and
clinicians a clinically accurate, non-invasive method for capturing a
24-hour blood pressure profile of the patient for complete analysis.
Using the DynaPulse 5000A is easy. The technician sets up the monitor's
measuring parameters using the computer, places the cuff on the patient and
the patient is ready to go. Since cuff placement is easy, when the patient
needs to remove it for certain activities, such as bathing, they can easily
put it back on.
Once the monitoring period is completed the monitor is returned and the
collected data is downloaded to the computer. The technician can then view
and validate each measurement using the DynaPulse Analysis software.
Comments can be attached to each measurement and all the information is
printable or exportable to other applications.
For research programs, information collected using the DynaPulse Monitor can
be transmitted to our DynaPulse Analysis Center over a secure Internet
connection and instantly analyzed for measurements of arterial compliance,
peripheral resistance, cardiac output, and other hemodynamic parameters.
DynaPulse analysis services are are currently linked to research applications.
The patented DynaPulse technology offers:
- Unique pattern recognition algorithm, minimizing sensitivity to
artifacts, giving you a much higher percentage of successful measurements.
- Increased accuracy with all three pressures and pulse rate measured
individually and not estimated. Most other oscillometric devices only
measure the mean arterial pressure and then estimate the systolic and
- Validation of each measurement from the non-invasive pressure waveform.
- Accurate measurements for patients with hypotensive, or muted, or
soft heart sounds.
Ease of Use
The DynaPulse 5000A allows for easy cuff placement since there are no
microphones or ECG leads
The DynaPulse 5000A analysis software offers many different reporting
formats for viewing your data.
An Extended Range of Readings
Ambulatory monitoring makes it easy to capture measurements over a 24-hour
period. This extended range of readings:
- Reduces effects of white coat hypertension
- Separates night time dippers from non-dippers
- Monitors therapeutic outcomes of medication treatments.
A Noninvasive Approach
If your focus is research, noninvasive studies save time, money,
- Time - Measurements are carried out using a simple oscillometric arm
cuff and the DynaPulse NIBP monitor. Validated BP data are available on site
as soon as downloaded to PC. Data are forwarded to the DynaPulse Analysis
Center by agreed method, analyzed for further parameters according to
protocol, then returned, possibly within as little as 24 hours.
- Money - Cost of these noninvasive studies is only a fraction of
invasive ones. However even some noninvasive tools for measuring these
parameters can be expensive, as much as $16,000 - $30,000 per unit. The
DynaPulse 5000A is a medium priced ABPM monitor which can be bought by
researchers or leased for a specific study. Hemodynamic parameters are
analyzed inexpensively by the DynaPulse Analysis Center.
- Risk - Invasive studies carry more risk than noninvasive studies.
DynaPulse arterial compliance measurements have already been validated
against invasive measurements in sick patients.
Each DynaPulse 5000A (Mini) package is complete with:
- DynaPulse 5000A (Mini) Monitor
- DynaPulse Analysis Software
- Small Adult, Standard Adult, and Large Adult Sized Cuffs
- USB Cable
- Users Guide
- Storage Case, and Other Accessories
- One Year Manufacturer's Limited Warranty
All DynaPulse monitors have an adjustable air
release valve, a screw or a knob, that allows user to set the appropriate
release rate of 30 +/- 5 seconds from start to end of a measurement. Total
measurement time of longer than 50-60 seconds may give higher systolic
reading and/or "Increase High Range" error message due to the cuff pressure
not being able to drop down below the diastolic point
DynaPulse uses standard clinical grade cuffs recommended by American Heart
Association. Three sizes are available: Standard Adult, Large Adult and
Small Adult. It is NOT recommended to use DynaPulse on infants or newborns.
Standard packages include single tubed cuffs without a 'D' ring. 'D' ring
type cuffs are available upon request
For the researcher, data collected by DynaPulse monitors may be transmitted
to the DynaPulse Analysis Center for analysis of up to 18 hemodynamic
- Brachial Arterial Compliance
- Peripheral Resistance
- Cardiac Output
- Left Ventricular Contractility
- Stroke Volume
Here are examples of the many statistical reports
generated by the DynaPulse software.
