Cascade HealthCare Products carries Summit Vascular ABI Systems. Our selection of Summit ABI systems include the Summit Vantage Cuff-Based ABI System, the Summit LifeDop 250 ABI System and the Summit LifeDop 300 ABI System.
The primary difference between the Summit Vantage ABI Systems and the LifeDop ABI Systems, is that the Vantage system is entirely cuff-based and provides readings through the cuffs without use of a handheld Doppler or probes. In comparison, the LifeDop ABI Systems use a handheld LifeDop 250 or LifeDop 300 vascular Dopplers with ABI Probes. Both LifeDop systems include a printer for conveniently printing the ABI, as does the Summit Doppler Vantage ABI Package 2 System.
If you are looking to purchase a LifeDop handheld ABI system, below are details to consider before making your choice between the LifeDop 250 and the LifeDop 300 ABI System.
Why choose the LifeDop 300 ABI System over the LifeDop 250 System?
Cascade HealthCare Products carries the LifeDop 250 ABI System for customers seeking a basic system at an economical price. However, we strongly encourage you to compare the features of both ABI Systems before making your choice, as the LifeDop 300 ABI System has a far superior range of features for your convenience.
LifeDop 300 ABI System: The L300 ABI includes a keypad for entering blood pressure measurements into memory as well as a software driven menu to walk you through an ABI. In addition, the L300 automatically calculates the ABI so the end user does not have to. The ABI is printed along with the individual pressure measurements and the Doppler waveforms on the included portable printer. The L300 ABI also comes standard with an aneroid and four blood pressure cuffs - two 10 cm cuffs and two 12 cm cuffs.
LifeDop 250 ABI System: The L250 ABI does not include a keypad or software driven menu to automatically calculate ABI. You are required to take each measurement, record it manually, and then calculate the ABI on your own. The portable printer must also be plugged in after each waveform is saved so that it can be printed. Like the L300, the L250 comes with an aneroid and portable printer, and an option of two or four blood pressure cuffs.
