POCKET DOPPLER / WITH HEART RATE MONITOR / WITH PLETHYSMOGRAPH / TBI 

Add to compare


Huntleigh is one of the leading names in ABI technology, and they’ve released quite a few name-changers in their line. With the DMX doppler, they have something that is tagged as a pocket doppler / with heart rate monitor / with plethysmography / TBI. How does it perform? Let’s take a closer look at its main characteristics.  

Features 

This product from Huntleigh can be classified, simply, as a vascular assessment kit — specifically aimed at the collection of Toe Systolic pressures for the calculation of Toe-Brachial Index (TBI.) Notable features of this device include the following: 

  • Uses Plethysmography probes for the collection of toe systolic pressures 
  • Simple and Efficient TBI analysis for analyzing the level of calcification in the patient’s arteries 
  • Equipped with a pressure detector that translates directly onto the available heart rate monitor display  
  • Records PPG waveforms and pressure readings for later analysis 
  • Compact and Portable design perfect for on-the-go vascular analysis

Tests Performed 

Primarily, this pocket doppler is meant to be used as an Ankle and Toe Pressure (ATP) kit that includes accessories that allow for the swift and intuitive analysis of Peripheral Arterial disease and other circulatory conditions.  

Testing procedure starts with the patient laying on their back, with blood pressure cuffs fitted and the PPG probe attached to the toe. The monitor will display heart rate and pulse waveforms will be recorded and stored in the device’s memory (to be transferred later for review.)

Pocket Doppler / With Heart Rate Monitor / With Plethysmograph / TBI Review 

As a big-name brand, Huntleigh regularly produces quality products, and that is something that you get with their pocket doppler / with heart rate monitor / with plethysmograph / TBI device. However, despite the quality, it is still something that we’ve seen before. Huntleigh didn’t make any groundbreaking discoveries or advancements with this vascular kit. Which is why it received the score that it did.

Pros and Cons 

A list of pros and cons of the Pocket Doppler / With Heart Rate Monitor / With Plethysmograph / TBI System.  


PROS:

  • Although vascular devices themselves are common, the same cannot be said for PPG pocket dopplers for TBI. That makes this Huntleigh doppler a good accompaniment to those who already have a regular doppler (for conducting ABI exams.)  
  • TBI examinations are great in accompaniment to ABI examinations as they can determine whether the level of calcification of the arteries could/or has led to false readings.  
  • Of course, the fact that this is a pocket doppler is also a plus. As those that need testing for PAD, in general, are known for having poor lower body mobility. Which makes a portable ABI device highly convenient.  
  • Lastly, because it uses a PPG probe — to collect PVR waveforms, this pocket doppler also has the capability of displaying and storing photoplethysmography for analysis and review. 

CONS:

  • As mentioned, even if the Huntleigh Doppler was constructed with quality in mind, it is still pretty basic (which it is meant to be as a handheld doppler.)  
  • Overall, even though you do get a fully functional device, you should know that you won’t be getting the newest technology in the market with this device.
