Blood Pressure with ECG trigger for bicycle ergometer

Part number: 945828
To Specifications

with ECG trigger

This option enables accurate and reliable automatic blood pressure measurement during exercise by using an ECG trigger. BP measurements are done according to the Korotkoff method. The ECG trigger makes this solution suitable to be used during exercise when motion artifacts are more present. It is important to note that for this option all blood pressure measurements need to be triggered.

The trigger can be supplied by the HR belt for ECG trigger for stand-alone solutions or by an ECG streamer with the ECG Acquisition trigger set when used together with LCRM.

Note: this blood pressure option does not work without a trigger and a 7″ control unit is needed

Frequently asked questions

How do I clean the BPM Microphone?

The K-sound Microphone can be cleaned using a mild disinfectant wipe (e.g. Sani-Cloth®) and letting the microphone line dry.

How does the BPM option handle extreme situations like atrial or ventricular fibrillation, arrhythmias, pacemakers, etc.

Presence of atrial or ventricular fibrillation, arrhythmias, pacemakers, etc. may interfere with the normal functionality of the BP monitor.

Specifications Blood Pressure Measurement Measurement: Auscultatory, using R-wave gating and k-sound analysis, during all static and active phases of stress testing. Systolic pressures correlate to a K-1 Korotkoff sound. Diastolic pressures correlate to K-5 Korotkoff sound. The device is designed to function in the presence of a normal ECG sinus rhythm. There are some physical conditions (i.e. Bundle Branch Block, Arrhythmias, Arial Fibrillation, Ventricular Fibrillation, Pacemakers, etc.) that may limit the ability of BP Monitor to obtain an accurate reading.

Notes on Blood Pressure Data Any blood pressure reading can be affected by the measurement site, the position of the patient, exercise, or the patient’s physiologic condition. Environmental or operational factors which can affect the performance of the device and/or its blood pressure reading are pacemakers and common arrhythmias such as atrial or ventricular premature beats or atrial fibrillation, arterial sclerosis, poor perfusion, diabetes, age, pregnancy, pre-eclampsia, renal diseases, patient motion, trembling, and shivering.

Is Lode recommending special disinfection procedures for the Lode products due to COVID-19?

Yes, Due to the fact that the scientific research on the spread of Covid-19 is not yet conclusive Lode recommends to disinfect and clean all Lode products and their accessories (cuffs, heart rate belts, SpO2 sensors, handgrips/rails, touchscreens etc) that are in contact with the patient and or the medical personnel with a standard disinfectant as used in the hospital before and after every patient, with attention and care!

Since these agents are sometimes aggressive it might be advisable to check the effect on sensitive surfaces, like cushioning on non-visible areas. Lode will not take responsibility for discoloration due to these agents.

Is LCRM compatible with automatic BP measurement devices?

When the automatic Blood Pressure option is available on the Lode ergometer, this module is compatible with LCRM. You can program the blood pressure interval in the exercise protocols.
