A peripheral artery is cannulated to perform invasive blood pressure monitoring known as arterial pressure monitoring. Critically ill and perioperative patients are frequently managed using this type of monitoring.
The pressure metre contains a button for releasing the air and a rubber pump for pumping air into the cuff. The cuff is wrapped around the naked, extended upper arm and inflated until no blood can pass through the brachial artery in order to measure blood pressure.
The cuff’s air is then gradually let out.The average arterial pressure during one cardiac cycle, including systole and diastole, is referred to as mean arterial pressure (MAP).
Cardiac output and systemic vascular resistance both affect MAP, and each is impacted by a number of different factors. A non-invasive sensor called the Blood Pressure Sensor was created to gauge people’s blood pressure. The oscillometric method is used to assess systolic, diastolic, and mean arterial pressure.
The Global Arterial pressure sensor market accounted for $XX Billion in 2022 and is anticipated to reach $XX Billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of XX% from 2023 to 2030.
Aktiia launched an automatic blood pressure monitor in the US.The new gadget is meant to automatically collect more blood pressure data—more than 100 times more than other monitors—and to encourage ten times greater participation.
The company’s optical wrist-worn sensors are used in its Optical Blood Pressure Monitoring (OBPM) algorithms. These sensors calculate blood pressure by analysing the change in artery diameter that happens with each heartbeat using photoplethysmography (PPG). Users do not need to take time out of their day to collect readings because the measures are done automatically.
The information can be quickly viewed in a mobile app and readily shared with a doctor or relative. According to Aktiia, this automated method frees patients from having to measure their blood pressure every day so they can concentrate on improving their cardiovascular health.
In January of last year, the blood pressure monitoring system got CE-mark certification as a Class IIa medical equipment. It is sold in seven European nations. A historic hypertension trial was announced by Aktiia in association with Brigham and Women’s Hospital (BWH) in the US.
