Measure the right values right with our algorithms for blood pressure measurement
The measurement of (arterial) blood pressure is the central instrument for determining the health status of our cardiovascular system. Different methods can be used to determine the blood pressure in the various sections of the arterial system.
The currently best-known form of blood pressure measurement is the individual measurement on the upper arm using a cuff, measuring the blood pressure in the brachialis. These values form the current basis for the classification of hypertension.
The central (aortal) blood pressure, on the other hand, describes the pressure in the aorta. This pressure directly affects the heart and many other vital organs. It’s therefore the decisive value for accurately determining the patient’s blood pressure and allowing an optimal therapy. Up to now, central blood pressure could only be measured directly in the aorta by using an invasive cardiac catheter and therefore cannot yet be used as a routine in medical practices.
However, initial research results show a high clinical benefit in the treatment of hypertension and the extension of the Health Span.
