To Specifications

with ECG trigger

This option enables accurate and reliable automatic blood pressure measurement during stress test, not disturbed by motion artifacts. The blood pressure module can be integrated with all commonly known and available stress test ECG equipment using RS232 and ECG connections. This means that the BP measurement can be started from the ECG stress test system and the data can be automatically recorded on the printed patient report. Korotkoff sounds are measured during BPM and analyzed using 3D K-sound analysis.

This option can only be ordered in combination with the (Programmable) control unit with touchscreen (945834/5).

Note: in order to connect the BPM to the ECG system, always order the BPM custom pack belonging to the required ECG system additionally. The custom packs can be found under accessories.

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.
