We’ve all seen that small clip-like device that is added on to our fingers during a visit to the hospital. Finger-tip Pulse Oximeters are devices that basically measure the oxygen concentration in blood. In this post, let’s look at what they are, what do they measure and why we need them. Continue reading “All you need to know about Pulse Oximeters”
We have been working on ways of getting closer to you – ways of being more accessible and convenient. Ola! We have now published an app that has all our product information, videos, brochures and images.
At this day and age, blood pressure is a household term and the awareness around maintaining a ‘normal’ blood pressure is increasing. If you’re wondering how and why, check out our article on blood pressure that would help you understand it deeper.
While 120/80 is a well known common number that is associated with blood pressure, above what range is it called ‘Hypertension’ and when is it called ‘Hypotension’?
In common practice, we consider anything below and equal to Systolic Blood Pressure 120 and Diastolic Blood Pressure 80 as normal whereas anything above 140 and 90 are considered higher. Continue reading “WHO and Blood pressure guidelines”
Blood Pressure (BP) – be it High BP or Low BP is a household name, thanks to the lifestyle changes of our generation. But do we know what blood pressure is, really? What do we understand in depth from those two numbers?
What exactly is Blood Pressure?
BP or Blood Pressure is roughly the pressure exerted by the blood on the wall of our arteries. Continue reading “What exactly is ‘Blood Pressure’?”
IO3-12, the latest innovation in the field of Ultrasonography is BPL-Alpinion’s sophisticated intra-oral transducer. Designed with a footprint as small as the size of a toothbrush, the transducer performs trans-oral sonography with ease. With its small footprint and easy grip, clinicians can easily manoeuvre and view intra- oral structures such as salivary duct dilatations and can also check the position of stone real time during Sialo lithotomy.

“A stitch in time saves nine” says an adage and when it comes to last minute efforts in saving lives, every second counts. Public access defibrillators (PAD) or Automated External Defibrillators (AED) as they are called, are defibrillators used to revive a person of cardiac arrest. These devices come with automated voice controls and easy operations for everyone to be able to use it in times of need. Continue reading “Automated External Defibrillator – A must have in all public places”
Performance of any ultrasound machine depends critically on the transducer but transducer performance has been one of the bottlenecks that prevents the end users from reaching their theoretical resolution limit specially when the goal is to differentiate between healthy and diseased tissue, without going for any invasive procedure. Knowledge is required from a variety of disciplines such as acoustics and vibration, electrical engineering, material science, medical imaging, anatomy and physiology. Continue reading “Transducers and Single Crystal Technology”
Medical imaging is used in various stages of patient management ranging from screening, diagnosis, therapy and follow-up. Imaging helps clinicians plan the treatment and accurately diagnose the position and help in follow-ups. While static images are good enough to plan radiation therapy, real-time imaging is fundamental for musculoskeletal procedures. With minimally invasive methodologies and revolutionary Needle Vision Technology on BPL- Alpinion’s Ultrasound machines, Ultrasound can now be used to diagnose a myriad of musculoskeletal problems with enhanced resolution. Continue reading “Scaling new frontiers with Needle Vision Technology”
BPL Medical Technologies has recently participated in IRIA 2017 in Jaipur from January 5 to 8, 2017. IRIA is the biggest Radiology event in India which is Organized by Indian Radiological & Imaging Association every year and is attended by most of the top Radiology KOLs from across the Globe. BPL’s Stall was placed in a strategic location with a mezzanine floor which gave us maximum Brand visibility and we received excellent response for our X-Ray & Color Doppler Range of Products.
