Introducing a “first-to-market” clinically validated solution for accurate and repeatable BP measurement of obese patients.
The GE CRITIKON* RADIAL-CUF delivers NIBP readings from the forearms of obese patients – a population in special need of accurate measurements. It was carefully designed for the forearm and validated in a clinical study1 – and the first of its kind.
Accurate BP measurements are essential to patient care and help support quality outcomes. Upper arm BP cuffs may not properly fit the conical-shaped arms of obese patients, and our clinical study found that using an upper arm cuff on the forearm will understate the systolic BP by 10 mmHg on average.2
This limited-reuse cuff can be paired with a single patient throughout the hospital stay, helping your infection control efforts. The RADIAL-CUF is made of soft, absorbent material and has rounded corners for patient comfort. The material does not contain DEHP or natural rubber latex, enhancing your patients’ safety.
