Features 

Even though the XT 14 is considered more advanced than its XT6 counterpart, there are actually a lot of similarities between the two — not just in build style and quality but also in the available features, which includes the following: 

  • The system is fully automatic and capable of measuring blood pressure through Oscillometric Probes and PPG probes for ABI, TBI, and PV-Arterial studies.  
  • In contrast to the XT6, the Smartdop XT 14 offers 14 unique inflation ports for easy and efficient bilateral and multi-level arterial studies. 
  • Hadeco has included compatibility with their Smart-XT Link Software, which is capable of processing easy to read reports that can be exported as PDFs and DICOM files for your practice’s EHR and PACS recording systems.  
  • The system is PC-based, and a touch screen computer is provided along with a keyboard and mouse. 
  • In order to make up for the bulkiness of the design, Hadeco has included a cart with purchase.  
  • Also included with purchase are PPG Probes (2), a Doppler Probe, a Temperature Probe, and color-coded tubing and cuffs (14) to use for each of the available ports.

Tests Performed 

Hadeco bridges the line between modern and traditional with their Smartdop XT line by allowing both oscillometric and doppler blood pressure measurement. In the case of the Smartdop XT14, specifically, you get 14 semi-automatic ports that can be used in order to measure blood pressure at multiple levels.  

Once the blood pressure cuffs, which are connected to the main system via color-coded tubing, are connected, all the testing can be done within one-click of a button, allowing for instant measurement and calculation.

Software Used
