The mercury sphygmomanometer has always been the top choice in quality blood pressure management. Unfortunately, due to mercury's high toxicity, mercury equipment has been banned or limited in many areas around the world. Digital aneroids and other replacements are often inadequate in comparison. ADC presents a solution to this problem with the e-sphyg 2™ Digital Aneroid, a unique device that mimics the look, feel, and quality of traditional mercurial sphygmomanometer without the risk of mercury spills.
The e-sphyg 2™ features two separate high-visibility LCD displays. The backlit "column" LCD looks and functions just like the column in traditional mercury sphygmomanometers, with the added benefit of improved readability even in less-than-ideal light conditions. The alpha-numeric LCD displays air pressure, deflation rate, systolic, diastolic, and pulse measurements.
One feature that sets the e-sphyg 2™ above all other digital aneroids is the ability to choose between manual and auto modes. The industry's first manual mode allows practitioners to use the time-tested auscultatory method with any sized cuff. Auto mode provides a highly accurate pressure, pulse, systolic and diastolic reading within one minute and clearly displays the measurements; it can be used with child, small adult, adult, and most large adult cuffs.
When in auto mode, the e-sphyg 2™ allows for automatic cuff inflation and deflation. The cuff inflates to pre-set levels for even simpler use. In manual mode, the user may choose from three pre-established deflation rates precisely controlled by the electronic control valve (ECV) for optimal results and accuracy.
Each configuration of the e-sphyg 2™ includes three Adcuff™ latex-free cuffs with ADC’s proprietary Size Guide™ marking system to prevent mis-cuffing. The cuffs, sizes small adult, adult, and large adult, are clearly labeled and color-coded (green small adult cuff, navy adult cuff, and burgundy large adult cuff) to avoid size confusion and inaccurate measurement.
All three configurations include an eight-foot length of coiled latex-free TPU tubing; the wall and mobile mounts also feature an Adcuff™ inflation system with latex bladder.
The device is powered by one NiCad rechargeable battery. The versatile battery provides approximately 200 measurements on a single charge, eliminating the hassle and frustration of constant recharging. The unit may also be powered by AC adapter for even further convenience and emergency backup. Both power sources are included.
Mounting options and cuff storage
The e-sphyg 2™ is available in three configurations: desktop, wall-mount, and mobile-mount.
The desktop sphygmomanometer's integral cuff storage basket holds a single cuff up to size large adult, protecting against cuff loss.
The wall-mount option features an attractive wall-mountable cuff storage basket. All assembly hardware and instructions are included.
The mobile-mount option is the most convenient of all, especially for facilities with limited blood pressure equipment. It is easily maneuverable on its height-adjustable (40"-54") Spider-leg™ 18" diameter base with casters. An integral cuff storage basket, all hardware, and assembly instructions ensure that there will be no need for further accessory purchases.
