New Patent for Caretaker Medical

Caretaker Medical has received issuance of a new Patent by the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) for self-calibrating systems for blood pressure wave form analysis and diagnostics, U.S. Patent No. 11,207,034, further strengthening the Company’s intellectual property position and coverage for the Company’s medical-grade continuous digital blood pressure and vital sign monitoring system.

“We are pleased to announce this new patent that is especially important for patient care as it enables ultra-fast, 30-second auto-calibration of arterial blood pressure, which is an essential measurement for cardiovascular health. This provides a big advantage over existing continuous blood pressure monitoring systems that require additional arm cuff calibration measurements, which add costly delays to set up time and patient care,” commented Jeff Pompeo, President and Chief Executive Officer of Caretaker Medical.

Caretaker Medical, a pioneer in wireless “beat-by-beat” hemodynamic monitoring technology, now has six issued patents in the U.S., Europe, and Asia, adding to the long-term value of our medical-grade VitalStream™ continuous patient monitoring system.
