What is iNIBP?
iNIBP is Nihon Kohden’s non-invasive blood pressure measurement algorithm using inflation technology. iNIBP completes the measurement while inflating a cuff.
The iNIBP measurement time is shorter and target inflation pressure is lower as compared to the conventional method, thus, speedy and gentle measurement gives less stress to both patients and caregivers.
Comparison of the iNIBP inflation method to the conventional deflation method
A cuff is rapidly inflated to a target inflation pressure, and then deflated step-wise while sensing oscillations.
A cuff is slowly inflated to a lower inflation pressure while simultaneously sensing oscillations.
The advantages of iNIBP are best demonstrated when patient's blood pressure is varying, for example during surgery. As iNIBP inflates while sensing blood pressure variation, it can complete the measurement in a shorter amount of time without applying excessive and unnecessary pressure to the patient.
