AG, a medical technology firm out of Graz, Austria, has received FDA approval to market the company's CNAP? Monitor 500, that performs continuous noninvasive blood pressure monitoring. It works as a stand alone device or in connection with existing patient monitoring equipment.

The CNAP? Monitor 500 has been developed with a cooperative data management in mind. Thus, it is able to communicate with nearly any modern patient monitoring equipment with a connector for invasive blood pressure measurement or device with analog data input:

Either the pressure curve is delivered through the analog out interface or, by emulating the function of an invasive transducer, sent straight into a patient monitor. This way widespread compatibility is assured, as the blood pressure information is displayed at the patient monitor's screen where it is expected by the physician and can be recorded to the patient data management systems without the need of any customization.
