The TM-2430 is a compact & lightweight Ambulatory Blood Pressure Monitor, which incorporates our latest technology gained from over 20 years’ experience in developing and manufacturing of ambulatory monitors.
This monitor was validated in accordance with BHS protocol and its accuracy was proven to be A/A. Weighing only 156 grams, the portable TM-2430 can be easily taken anywhere with a patient, and is one of the lightest in class – even including batteries.
Unlike some devices which are based on a desktop/home use design, which are heavy, cumbersome and uncomfortable, the TM-2430 is designed specifically for purpose:
Secure threaded cuff connection: Unlike some designs that have a push in connector, the TM-2430 benefits from a secure thread connection to ensure the cuff doesn’t become detached whilst the patient is wearing the device during their everyday life.
Soft cloth cuff: Unlike some of the rough plastic cuffs available on some devices, the TM-2430 benefits from a soft, machine washable cloth, to ensure maximum comfort whilst the patient wears the device over long periods of time.
The importance of ABPM in managing hypertension has been acknowledged in hypertension guidelines and a number of authoritative bodies have now issued guidelines on the use of ABPM. A taskforce of participants at the 1999 Consensus Conference on ABP monitoring, sponsored by the International Society of Hypertension, suggested that:
‘ABPM should be performed only with properly validated devices as an accessory to conventional measurement of BP [blood pressure]. ABPM requires considerable investment in equipment and training and its use for screening purposes cannot be recommended.
ABPM is most useful for identifying patients with white-coat hypertension (WCH), also known as isolated clinic hypertension.
ABPM or equivalent methods for tracing the white-coat effect should become part of the routine diagnostic and therapeutic procedures applied to treated and untreated patients with elevated clinic blood pressures. Results of long-term outcome trials should better establish the advantage of further integrating ABPM as an accessory to conventional sphygmomanometry into the routine care of hypertensive patients and should provide more definite information on the long-term cost-effectiveness.’
The monitor benefits from extremely accurate Oscillometric BP measurement, first developed and patented by A&D back in 1984.
It also boasts A&D’s IHB (Irregular Heart Beat)/Circadian Rhythm analysis technology, pioneered by A&D in 2001 and now found on our entire range of blood pressure monitors. This A&D ground breaking technology is now used worldwide assisting in the opportunistic detection of arrhythmias – which include Afib (or Atrial Fibrillation).
Professor Gianfranco Parati, of the European Society of Hypertension selected the TM-2430 for his recent HIGHCARE study conducted in the Andes into High Altitude Cardiovascular Research:
