The Accutorr V monitors patient vital signs (including non-invasive blood pressure (NIBP),
pulse oxygen saturation (SpO2), and pulse rate (PR)) for a single adult, pediatric, or neonatal
patient. It also monitors oral or rectal mode temperature (Temp) for a single adult or pediatric
patient; or axillary mode temperature for a single neonate, adult, or pediatric patient using
the optional Temperature Module.
The NIBP module is used to measure the systolic pressure, diastolic pressure, and mean
pressure in the neonatal, pediatric, and adult modes. The Accutorr V calculates NIBP values
using the oscillometric method of noninvasive blood pressure measurement. These
measurements correspond to comparisons with auscultatory values, measured using the fifth
Korotkoff sound within ANSI/AAMI SP10 standards for accuracy.
