What's changing the way Blood Pressure is reported on?

SCHILLER Australia is excited to introduce a leading new product that is changing the way Blood Pressure is monitored and reported on. Our BR-102plus PWA has plenty of  battery power, a quieter pump than most devices of its kind, a new cuff design with integrated bladder, and all the while remaining a lightweight solution.

What’s most exciting about this ambulatory blood pressure monitor is the Pulse Wave Analysis (PWA) that it performs.

The importance of performing a Pulse Wave Analysis has been increasing since 2003, with the promotion of PWA finally being recognised by the European Society of Cardiology, as well as the European Society for Hypertension.

Since the importance of Pulse Wave Analysis is now widely accepted, General Physicians, in particular Cardiologists, are using PWA for a number of reasons:

  • It significantly improves Cardiovascular risk assessment
  • There is a close correlation between stiffness parameters and coronary heart disease and target organ damage
  • It is a more effective and more specific measurement type than previous methods
  • It can provide a differential diagnosis

What is even more promising is that our Pulse Wave Analysis technology has been fully validated in several studies, even when compared with the Gold Standard for testing: Invasive Catheter BP Measurement.

Unlike existing techniques used to assess vascular status, the benefits of using our BR-102plus with PWA technology are:

  • It increases diagnostic precision
  • Patient compliance is simple
  • No additional effort is required, it’s just like performing an ABP recording
  • Physicians do not need to be present for assessment
