Sphygmocor XCEL Launched

Posted on 01/01/2013

The SphygmoCor XCEL has the following features:

  • PWA measurements are made with a brachial cuff only – no need for a tonometer sensor: The SphygmoCor XCEL both collects the waveform, and calibrates it with brachial cuff pressure in 60 seconds. This makes the SphygmoCor XCEL much easier to use – if you can put a cuff on a patient, you can take a measurement. The SphygmoCor XCEL can also be used in light exercise, such as on a stationary bike, to investigate the changes in arterial stiffness during exercise.
  • Accurate measurements: The SphygmoCor XCEL uses a brachial SphygmoCor general transfer function, adapted from the SphygmoCor radial transfer function that has been validated with 600 published clinical articles. When measuring central aortic Systolic Pressure, the average difference between the SphygmoCor XCEL and SphygmoCor is only 0.5mmHg, with a high correlation of  r=.99 – showing both devices will provide a very similar measurement on a patient.
  • Simplicity. The SphygmoCor XCEL provide central aortic BP, as well as augmentation pressure and augmentation index, measures of arterial stiffness and wave reflection. The data is presented in an easy to understand report screen showing the central pressure waveform that can be used in teaching to explain the hemodynamic effects of arterial stiffness.
  • Designed for research and teaching. The measurement data is stored on a PC, and can be downloaded into XCEL for analysis. The software comes with a multiuser license so it can be copied on to multiple PC’s to aid in different research or learning projects.
