The new A&D Medical TM-2440 and TM-2441 Ambulatory Blood Pressure Monitors are now available to order from lead distributor PMS Instruments. They replace the old TM-2430 which PMS originally introduced in 1998.

Engineered in Japan, they are the 4th generation of A&D ABPM monitor PMS Instruments have launched in the UK and easily the most advanced to date. Both new models have a number of new innovative premium features.

With the launch of 2 new ABPM monitors at once the twenty year wait has been worth it!

The A&D TM-2440 Classic abpm comes as standard with fast measurement time, silent operation and with a world first in an A&D ABPM, IHB (Irregular Heart Beat) analysis technology.

This ground breaking technology pioneered by A&D in 2001 is now used worldwide assisting in the opportunistic detection of arrhythmias – which include AFib (or Atrial Fibrillation). It features Oscillometric waveform measurement analysis and with the new analysis software you can check the waveform record for each measurement.

The TM-2441 Premium ABPM with it’s all in one design concept offers the clinician and patient complete flexibility, providing Ambulatory (ABPM), Home (HBPM), Office (OBP), Automatic Night Blood Pressure (ANBP), and Automatic Self Blood Pressure (ASBP) measurement/monitoring in one device.

In addition to the Irregular Heart Beat analysis technology, it records environmental factors including Activity using a built in Accelerometer, Temperature and Air Pressure. The new TM-2441 provides additional more insightful view of the patient beyond just blood pressure recording and heart rate information – helping build a better picture for clinical decision making.

Both models for the first time are available with 4 different cuff sizes small, adult, large adult and extra-large adult with sizes fitting an arm circumference from 15-22cm right up to 36-50cm.

Why Buy A Clinically Validated Blood Pressure Monitor?

The sales team at PMS often get asked the same questions from customers wanting to purchase a blood pressure monitor. Questions like which one would you recommend and which is the best one we sell will depend on the features a user is looking for and their budget.

One question we are always happy to answer is “What does clinical validation mean?”

Many customers are familiar with the CE mark on consumer electrical items.
Medical devices like blood pressure monitors must also have a CE mark by law. The CE mark means that, provided you use it correctly, the device will work properly and is safe but doesn’t mean it will necessarily give accurate readings or that it is clinically validated.

Whether you are going to record your blood pressure at home or in a clinical setting surely accuracy is the whole point of buying a monitor in the first place!
When a manufacturer like Meditech or A&D Medical state their product is “clinically validated” it means an independent validation of the device has been performed by a professional group.

The most common validation protocols are the British and Irish Hypertension Society (BIHS), formerly British Hypertension Society, the European Society of Hypertension International Protocol (ESH-IP), and the Association for the Advancement of Medical Instrumentation (AAMI).

Taking frequent ECGs can help you better manage your heart health, and capturing an ECG specifically during times when heart rate does not match activity levels may be useful.
