The BpTRU BPM100 Blood Pressure Monitor is an automated non-invasive blood pressure monitor that is reliable, accurate and easy to use. The BpTRU BPM100 is designed for the office or clinic setting and operates with or without the operator present. The BpTRU BPM100 with its large easy to read LED display is mounted on the wall and displays accurate precise measurements. The physician will immediately see the average reading clearly displayed.
At the touch of a single button the BpTRU BPM-100 Blood Pressure Monitor automatically performs up to six measurements, discards the first reading and displays the average of the subsequent readings. This eliminates the risk of first reading inaccuracy.The interval of the readings (start to stop) can be varied from 1 to 5 minutes depending on user preference as well as take single point measurements. The BpTRU BPM100 Blood Pressure Monitor is designed to operate with or without the operator present, and releases the physician to see other patients while the BP measurement is being taken.
The BpTRU BPM-100 Blood Pressure Monitor automatically inflates to 35mmHg above the systolic and deflates at a controlled rate. This is made possible by a proprietary precision valve which provides smooth linear deflation of the cuff increasing accuracy and comfort. The BpTRU BPM100 Blood Pressure Monitors incorporate many safety features and self-diagnostic programs to protect the patient. Eliminating faulty technique due to improper inflation and deflation of the cuff; the precise and reliable inflation and deflation of the cuff provide accurate reproducible readings.
BpTRU BPM-100 Blood Pressure Monitors include the BPM 100 Monitor, Wall Mounting Bracket, Small Adult Cuff, Regular Adult Cuff and Large Adult Cuff, as well as, Coiled Neoprene Tubing, Operator's Manual, Quick Start Guide and AC Power Supply. See the ACCESSORIES tab above for replacement cuffs, extra-large cuff, child cuff and additional accessories for the BpTRU BPM 100 Blood Pressure Monitor.

BpTRU accuracy compares with hospital grade blood pressure monitors. Readings are displayed to the nearest 1mmHg. The BpTRU, Model BPM-100 exceeds both the Association for the Advancement of Medical Instrument (AAMI) and British Hypertension Society's (BHS) most stringent "A/A" rating. The BpTRU is calibrated to agree with the current accepted standard of the fifth Korotkoff sound, or absence of sound. This provides an accurate, reliable and reproducible reading.
The device automatically takes multiple readings at pre-set intervals, then calculates and displays the average. This eliminates the risk of "first reading inaccuracy."
The BpTRU self calibrates. It goes through a self-diagnostic test when turned on and automatically re-calibrates on every reading. Where regulations require periodic calibration checks, the BpTRU can be easily calibrated against a calibrated reference dial gauge or sphygmomanometer.
Yes. In many patients blood pressure varies minute-to-minute with the anxiety of the doctor's office, change of surrounding, talking, etc. Much has been written about situational or "white-coat" hypertension whereby readings are high until the patient becomes relaxed with the clinician and/or the blood pressure measurement procedure itself. Even then, an unexpected noise or statement by the doctor can, at that moment, change the patient's blood pressure. Our device is designed to operate with or without the operator present, and releases the physician to see other patients while the BP measurement is being taken.
Multiple readings and the automatic elimination of the first reading from the calculation greatly reduce the risk of "white-coat" effect. Situational or white-coat hypertension, affecting up to 20% of men and 54% of women, affects the accurate diagnosis of hypertension leading to both false positive readings and over prescription of anti-hypertensives; and undermines the physicians' confidence in the readings.
You have complete flexibility on the number and time between measurements. A button lets you select up to six readings with the interval between readings between 1 and 5 minutes. Readings are averaged, less the first reading, and can be reviewed at the conclusion of the test.
No. You can stop the instrument at any point. It will give you the average for the measurements that have been taken, less the first reading. It is for this reason that multiple readings are important and called for in good medical practice standards.

Yes. The patient's arm must remain still during cuff inflation and deflation. As a safeguard, the instrument will detect movement and automatically discard that reading. An error code will be displayed in the REVIEW cycle and the reading will be excluded in the averaging.
The BpTRU, model BPM-100 is wall mounted and easy to read with a clear LED screen, in the exam rooms where routine BP measurements are taken.
The BpTRU does not incorporate mercury. Environmental concerns about use, disposal and hazards of mercury are driving the conversion of clinics and hospitals away from mercury-based devices. The BpTRU is an accurate and safe alternative. See Mercury, for information on the negative impacts and areas banning its use.
