OMRON MIT – an arterial pressure and pulse frequency meter with a built-in monitoring map MIT- monitor (AP-monitor)
Cardiology – a twenty-four-hours’ monitoring of the arterial pressure and pulse frequency.
Anaestheology – an automatic control of pressure during operations.
OMRON MIT is a compact, fully automated apparatus to measure the arterial pressure at the shoulder artery. The apparatus is connected with the cuff either directly or with a help of a vacuum tube. OMRON MIT quickly and accurately measures pressure and pulse and converts the information into a digital reading on a liquid-crystalline indicator. The apparatus is applied with the function of an artificial intelligence, and measures pressure when air is pumped into the cuff. OMRON MIT can save the latest measure in memory.
A built-in monitoring map MIT-monitor (a map, hereinafter) is designed for extending the OMRON MIT performance capabilities up to the twenty-four-hours’ monitoring of the arterial pressure and pulse. The map has a built-in real time clock and provides a possibility of multiple starts and saving the results of the arterial pressure and pulse measurement due to the program designed. The program for measuring is designed on a computer with a help of a suitable addition RTViewer (Windows) and is entered on to the map for being indefinitely held. The map programming and information exchange with a computer is realized through the port COM 1 or COM 2 in a consecutive order.

2. Installation of the monitoring map Monitor MIT
The map is installed into the meter body. The map is installed once for the whole map operation time.
3. Arterial pressure and pulse measurement
A quick stroke of the button (ON/OFF) placed under the display cover switches on the apparatus. On the display, there are highlighted all symbols all together, that proves the apparatus being in a running order.
If any measurement was done before, the latest result is highlighted on the display.
Another quick stroke of the button ON/OFF starts a new measurement. When the measurement is over, the values of a systolic and diastolic pressure (3 seconds) and the pulse frequency (2 seconds) are highlighted on the display in turn.
4. Starting the arterial pressure and pulse measurements under the monitor program
When pressing the button ON/OFF and holding it in this state for 4-5 sec, OMRON MIT starts measuring the arterial pressure and pulse under the program of a controlling map. A successful start is proved by a compressor preliminary short-term single switching on. The first measurement under the program is done immediately after starting.
The following holding in a pressed state for more than 3 sec and releasing of the button ON/OFF stops the measurement under the program. A successful stop of measurements is proved by a compressor short-term single switching on. When the last measurement completed, there is always done a stop of measurements.
Measurements being done under the program, OMRON MIT can be also used to accomplish single measurements without registering in the memory.
5. The map programming
Programming being done, the meter should be disconnected form the computer and it is ready for the off-line operation.
6. The reception of the measurement results from the map into the computer
