Icare Versus Haag-Streit Applanation Tonometer

2014-08-27 03:12:18 | BioPortfolio


The clinical performance of Icare ONE Tonometer TA02 was compared to a Goldmann type applanation tonometer (Haag-Streit). Data was collected according to ANSI Z80.10-2003 (ISO 8612.2) standard. Subjects were eligible for the study if they had no exclusion criteria specified in the ANSI/ISO standard. One eye from 260 subjects was selected for the study. The minimum sample size according to the standard is 150. One eye of each subject was selected for the study by an investigator, based on the history of the patient, results of an external examination of the eye with slit lamp, keratometry readings, and prior knowledge of the intraocular pressure (IOP) range. The Icare ONE Tonometer TA02 in comparison to the reference tonometer (Goldmann type tonometer).

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A form of GLAUCOMA in which chronic optic nerve damage and loss of vision normally attributable to buildup of intraocular pressure occurs despite prevailing conditions of normal intraocular pressure.

The pressure of the fluids in the eye.

Abnormally low intraocular pressure often related to chronic inflammation (uveitis).

A condition in which the intraocular pressure is elevated above normal and which may lead to glaucoma.

The pressure within the CARDIAC ATRIUM. It can be measured directly by using a pressure catheter (see HEART CATHETERIZATION). It can be also estimated using various imaging techniques or other pressure readings such as PULMONARY CAPILLARY WEDGE PRESSURE (an estimate of left atrial pressure) and CENTRAL VENOUS PRESSURE (an estimate of right atrial pressure).
