Medwave has CE-marked its Vasotrac APM 205A non-invasive blood pressure device for sale in Europe. The St Paul, Minnesota company claims that the device, which can monitor blood pressure continuously, has an accuracy similar to a conventional indwelling radial artery catheter. The device works by placing a sensor over the radial artery on the wrist. Measurements and waveforms are then quickly displayed on a small, easy-to-read monitor.
