UM-102B Mercury Free Sphygmomanometers A&D
As a major maker of digital blood pressure monitors, A&D is committed to environmental protection, having created the world’s first non-mercury conventional style sphygmomanometer. The ‘Minamata Convention on Mercury’ details the global campaign to eliminate mercury usage, and A&D is happy to be a part of this government and industry-led drive.
Its predecessor, the ground-breaking UM-101, has been employed in a number of clinical trials this year, one of the most recent being a study looking for “a appropriate replacement for mercury sphygmomanometry to correctly monitor blood pressure (BP) in normal and hypertensive pregnancy.”
In pregnancy, the UM-101 “auscultatory hybrid sphygmomanometer” was found to be more accurate than the automated oscillometric device, particularly in hypertensive pregnancies. In pregnancy, it’s a good substitute for mercury sphygmomanometry.
