The Pulsair Desktop Tonometer features a small, space-saving footprint combined with the elegant, pump, solenoid control valves, a plenum chamber, and an optical mainframe allow efficient and fast measurement. The openness of the design increases the confidence of both patient and clinician. LED illumination provides a constant and reliable light source for the alignment camera and the positional detection systems. The quietly cost-effective Pulsair Desktop air puff tonometer requires no sterile consumables. Printing is also under your control, so ongoing costs are managed.
Less is more. Pulsair Desktop Tonometer is uncomplicated and therefore is quick to use for the novice and professional alike. Taking control of tonometry has never been easier or faster. Clear user controls and a color video alignment screen combine to set a new standard in usability.
The Keeler Pulsair Desktop Tonometer uses advanced optical and sensor technology for positional detection and puff control. It has software controls to manage the measurement data; if two consecutive readings are within +/- 1mmHg of each other, the Pulsair air puff tonometer will inform the user that sufficient readings may have been taken for that eye, saving precious time and increasing patient comfort.
|Type of Instrument
Non-contact tonometry (NCT) is a widely used method for measuring intraocular pressure (IOP) in the field of ophthalmology. It is a quick, painless, and non-invasive procedure that allows for the evaluation of a patient's risk for developing glaucoma, a progressive eye disease characterized by elevated IOP. NCT has revolutionized the way IOP is measured, replacing older techniques that involved direct contact with the cornea.
Non-contact tonometry, on the other hand, addresses these concerns by utilizing a puff of air to measure IOP without touching the eye's surface. The instrument used for NCT typically consists of a slit lamp biomicroscope, a tonometer, and a sensor to detect the force of the air pulse. During the procedure, the patient places their chin on a chinrest while looking at a target, and the operator aligns the tonometer with the patient's eye.
When the examination begins, a short burst of air is released towards the cornea, causing a slight indentation on the eye's surface. The tonometer's sensor measures the resistance of the cornea to the air pulse, allowing the instrument to calculate the IOP. The entire process is quick and painless, lasting only a few seconds.
