BP + Health

Blood pressure is where all treatment decisions begin.

Accurate monitoring of blood pressure is a critical component of patient care. This measurement serves as an indicator of the health of the heart and arteries and is a measure of whether sufficient blood is distributed throughout the body. While blood pressure is considered to be among the most basic of vital signs, common methodologies today are either highly invasive, prone to complications or time-consuming to ensure proper accuracy.

At PyrAmes, we are transforming the delivery of patient care through advanced sensor measurement for cNIBP.

 

Advantages of the PyrAmes Platform
over Current Methods

  • Accurate
  • Non-Invasive
  • Continuous
  • Easy to Use

Arterial Line

Accurate

Considered the gold standard, but may be prone to damping effects that affect accuracy.

Non-Invasive

Complications beyond bleeding risk include: infections, clots, tissue and nerve damage.

Continuous

Continuous real-time blood pressure, rich hemodynamic information.

Easy to Use

Requires placement and maintenance by trained clinicians. May require support from additional medical personnel.

Blood Pressure Cuff

Accurate

Not as accurate as an arterial line. Can result in elevated BP values due to discomfort for infant patients.

Non-Invasive

Can be disturbing or painful for very young and elderly patients.

Continuous

Intermittent measurements only. Prolonged use can lead to tissue damage and inaccurate measurements.

Easy to Use

Prone to incorrect placement and usage.

Pulse transit time (PTT)

Accurate

PTT alone is unreliable in offering full insights into BP variations. 4

Non-Invasive

Cumbersome and requires the patient to wear multiple sensors.

Continuous

Can measure continuous blood pressure.

Easy to Use

Multiple sensors needed. Added time in attachment and removal. Adhesive can irritate skin.

The PyrAmes Platform

Accurate

Similar to arterial lines.

Non-Invasive

Non-invasive, wireless and painless. No needles, eliminating the risk of infection at the insertion site.

Continuous

Continuous real-time blood pressure, rich hemodynamic information.

Easy to Use

Can be placed on patients easily and quickly by any member of the care team.

cNIBP Health Impact

PyrAmes provides an option to continuously monitor blood pressure cNIBP for patients of all ages.

Over 50% of NICU Admissions

could benefit from BP monitoring but would not receive an arterial line because it is invasive and costly.1

50% of Adults have High BP

50% of adults are affected by high blood pressure in the US, increasing their mortality rates.2

7.6 Million Deaths Annually

Raised blood pressure (BP) is responsible for 7.6 million deaths worldwide annually.3

cNIBP & Early Detection

cNIBP has the potential for early detection of conditions within preterm infants and adults.
