Riester 1760 Ri-Cardio 24-Hour Ambulatory Blood Pressure Monitor Overview

Ri-Cardio is a 24-hour ABPM (ambulatory blood pressure monitor) that supplies valuable diagnostic data that cannot be acquired by means of a conventional sphygmomanometer in the hospital and at home. Ri-Cardio captures temporal blood pressure fluctuations, nocturnal blood pressure, and the nightly fall and morning rise in blood pressure. Clinicians across the globe consider this new 24-hour sphygmomanometer to be the gold standard in blood pressure determination.

The Ri-Cardio is a non-invasive oscillometric bp monitor that measures systolic and diastolic bp of adult patients 13 years of age or older. It is intended for use as an aid or adjunct to diagnosis and treatment.

Data obtained from this ABPM is extremely accurate and useful for managing numerous hypertensive situations such as:

  • Childhood hypertension
  • Changes in diet and daily routine designed to reduce hypertension
  • Efficacy of anti-hypertensive drug therapy on a 24-hour basis
  • Episodic hypertension and/or anxiety disorders
  • Hypertension during pregnancy
  • Hypotensive symptoms
  • Masked hypertension
  • Nocturnal hypertension
  • Resistant hypertension
  • White-coat hypertension

Literature & Documentation:

Reliable Precision:

The Ri-Cardio is clinically validated for blood pressure measuring by all three international standards:

  • British Hypertension Society (BHS)
  • European Society of Hypertension International Protocol (EHS)
  • Association for the Advancement of Medical Instrumentation (AAMI) SP10

Meets BHS Standard A/A & International Protocol:

BHS (British Hypertension Society) is a group of clinicians and scientists that collaborate to reduce the burden and repercussions of hypertension and cardiovascular disease around the world. To improve blood pressure measurement, they actively validate blood pressure monitors from different manufacturers by putting them through rigorous testing. The Riester Ri-Cardio 24-Hour BP Monitor has been independently tested and added to the BHS's list of blood pressure monitors validated for clinical use.

Patient Comfort And Compliance:

  • Light, compact design
  • Motion-tolerant technology reduces re-inflates and failed readings
  • Dynamic inflation above previous systolic reduces measurement time
  • Quiet pump operation
  • Flash memory eliminates the possibility of lost data

Ri-Cardio Software:

Ri-Cardio software is a user-friendly program designed for a Windows PC that allows flexibility in the configuration, analysis, interpretation, and reporting of blood pressure studies.

  • Analysis of iatrogenic hypertension - comparison of data collected in the first hour with the data set for the full 24 hours, any possible iatrogenic hypertension automatically pointed out
  • PDF report compatible with patient data systems - creates a non-editable, electronic report
  • Short report - a simple report that summarizes the bp graphs, an interpretative overview, the nightly fall in bp, statistics and selected patient data on one page
  • Clear presentation of the statistical results - provides statistics for periods of wake, sleep and average values in the summary for bp, heart rate, pulse amplitude, mean arterial pressure and bp stress
  • Time periods - supplies statistical analyses within a user-defined time window

Blood Pressure Cuff:

  • Patented, elastic cuff for a perfect fit without disturbing closure
  • Perfect fit ensures no slipping of the cuff and no missed measurements (especially useful at night)
  • Curved design suitable for larger arm circumferences
  • Latex-free
  • Machine washable due to removable inflatable insert
