Reichert’s Model 30 Pneumatonometer provides fast and acurate tonometry and optional tonography functions. Here is how the Model 30 Classic Pneumatonometer works: The Pneumatonometer probe tip, which floats on an air bearing, is gently touched to the anesthetized cornea and a precisely regulated flow of filtered air applies force to the tip. A 5mm diameter fenestrated membrane permits the air to flow through vents in the tip until it conforms to the shape of the cornea. Increasing air pressure is continually applied to the cornea until the force being applied is equal to the pressure in the anterior chamber. When these forces are in balance, a pneumatic sensor records the intraocular pressure. In pulse tonometry mode, the ocular pulse waveform is charted and recorded along with the IOP.
The Reichert Model 30 Pneumatonometer is easy to use. The all-new touch screen interface features an easy-to-use icon-based operating system enabling even inexperienced users to take measurements in seconds. The Pneumatonometer’s full color display guides the operator through the measurement process and displays the readings. The optional footswitch (Included in the tonography kit – catalog number 16033) makes obtaining measurements even easier, freeing the operator to concentrate on handling the sensor probe. An integrated chart strip printout can be placed in patient files as a record of the diagnostic procedure.
The Reichert Model 30 Pneumatonometer provides ocular pulse amplitude measurements in addition to tonometry measurements. Optional tonography mode enables measurement of the aqueous outflow efficiency of the trabecular meshwork.
The Model 30 Pneumatonometer is trusted worldwide and is frequently the specialist’s and researcher’s instrument of choice. Note: Research indicates that measurements obtained with the Model 30 Pneumatonometer are less affected by corneal properties than other methods of tonometry.
