After being available since 1995 Finapres has allowed the Finometer® Pro to retire. It is still going strong for a lot of Finapres users, and naturally we will continue to arrange for Finometer Pro health checkups when desired (and repairs where possible)!
The Finometer® PRO is a stand-alone solution for accurate non-invasive beat-to-beat blood pressure monitoring. The Finometer® PRO incorporates the Modelflow® technology providing hemodynamic parameters such as stroke volume, total peripheral resistance and cardiac output as well as pulse rate (variability) and baroreflex sensitivity analysis. The Finometer® PRO is widely used in clinical settings and advanced scientific research. The absolute accuracy of the Finometer®PRO can be calibrated with an upper arm cuff measurement using the patented Return To Flow (RTF) technology.The Finometer® PRO passed the AAMI/SP10 and BHS protocols*. Optional software offers online monitoring, storage, analysis and review of acquired data. The Finometer® PRO can be used in combination with the optional ECG module.
The accuracy of the Finometer®findings are reported in numerous articles comparing the Finometer® results with intra-arterial findings*. Furthermore the Finometer® PRO has been validated using the Rica-Rocci Korotkoff method*. The Modelflow® cardiac output has been validated against thermodilution cardiac output in patients undergoing coronary artery bypass surgery**
