Simultaneous ABI Measurements
The Falcon has the ability to measure simultaneously up to 5 BP (blood pressure) segments at the same time with the aid of PPG sensors. This allows rapid and simultaneous diagnosis of ABI (Ankle Brachial Index), which is very useful for rapid patient screening for peripheral arterial disease.
All pressure channels are color coded to help the examiner quickly place the cuffs on the patient limbs.
The Falcon has up to 10 completely independent pressure channels for rapid and efficient patient examination, yet the limit for performing simultaneous BP (blood pressure) measurement is 5 due to the number of PPG channels.
Due to the complete independence of the pressure channels, the examiner has complete control over the measurement process and can configure any number of pressure channels to be activated at the same time.
Below is an example of a group of 4 blood pressure measurements performed using 3 photo-plethysmograph sensors and 1 Doppler sensor on the right ankle, all performed simultaneuosly. The right ankle segment was measured using 8 MHz Doppler probe due to an amputated toe.
