SphygmoCor XCEL

Non-invasive central aortic blood pressure and arterial stiffness.

Product Information

SphygmoCor XCEL PWA

The SphygmoCor XCEL PWA device provides measurement Central Aortic Blood Pressure and Augmentation index in less than 60 seconds via a brachial pressure cuff is placed on the patients arm, over the brachial artery. The SphygmoCor XCEL, with the press of just one button, takes the patients brachial systolic and diastolic pressure, and then captures the patient’s brachial arterial waveform. The brachial waveform is then analysed by ATCOR’s CompleteBP™ solution to provide a comprehensive appraisal of cardiovascular health including: Central aortic waveform, and Central blood pressure measurements such as Central Aortic Systolic BP, Central Pulse pressure and Augmentation index

The Patient’s measurement is displayed in relation to reference values based on the patients’ age and sex including Central Pulse pressure (PP), Augmented Pressure (AP) and the Augmentation index (Aix). The Software also displays the SphygmoCor reference age based upon the age of healthy people in the population who have similar PWA parameters. SphygmoCor XCEL is the standard for fast, accurate and painless Central BP measurements.

SphygmoCor XCEL PWA and PWV

The SphygmoCor XCEL PWA and PWV provides measurement of a patient’s Central Aortic blood pressure and a measurement of the patient’s carotid-femoral pulse wave velocity. (cf-PWV).

To conduct a cf-PWV measurement, a cuff is placed around the femoral artery of the patient to capture the femoral waveform and a tonometer pressure sensor is used to capture the Carotid waveform. The Pulses are collected over a pre-set time interval to determine the Pulse transit time which, is the time that the pulse takes to travel from the carotid artery to the femoral artery. The distance between the Carotid and femoral arteries is measured and the velocity automatically determined by dividing the distance by the Pulse transit time.

The Pulse Wave Velocity report outlines the patient’s PWV and a comparison to healthy and general population data.

The SphygmoCor XCEL features:

  • Measurement of Central Blood Pressure or Pulse Wave Velocity
  • Augmentation index and Augmented pressure to assess peripheral arterial stiffness.
  • Simple PWA technique – place the cuff on the arm and press start.
  • ATCOR’s CompleteBP™ (SphygmoCor Brachial General Transfer Function – so you know it is accurate)
  • Gold standard carotid-femoral Pulse Wave Velocity – no undressing required.
  • Data equivalency with earlier SphygmoCor systems.
