Device Specifications:
The Suntech CT40 is a vital signs monitor. Its blood pressure measurement technology has been proven to be accurate, with a 2-star Medaval rating and information regarding the accuracy of its oxygen saturation measurement technology does not appear to be available. Blood pressure measurements are taken from the upper arm and oxygen saturation measurements are taken from the finger. It is intended for bedside patient monitoring.
The technology used in the Suntech CT40, to measure blood pressure, has passed in a clinical validation study, in a general population, according to a recognised standard protocol, as published in a peer-reviewed publication. There appears to be no peer-reviewed clinical validation information available on the technology used in the Suntech CT40 to measure peripheral oxygen saturation.
