Reichert MODEL 30 CLASSIC™ Pneumatonometer
The Reichert Model 30™ Pneumatonometer is an easy to use instrument that provides fast and accurate tonometry and optional tonography functions. The 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 small (5 mm diameter) fenestrated membrane permits the air to flow through vents in the tip until it conforms to the shape of the cornea. Increasing 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 IOP.
The Model 30 Classic Pneumatonometer measures intraocular pressure noninvasively through applanation tonometry. A gentle, floating pneumatic sensor touches the surface of the anesthetized cornea with the exact amount of applanation force required to take the measurement.
Easy to Use
Both patients and technicians alike agree the Model 30 Classic Pneumatonometer is easy to use. The integrated chart strip recorder can be placed in patient files as a record of the diagnostic procedure. The optional footswitch (standard with tonography unit) makes obtaining measurements even easier, freeing the operator to concentrate on handling the sensor probe.
