JVP stands for Jugular Venous Pressure. Clinicians rely on measurement of the JVP to assess volume status in a variety of medical conditions.
How is the JVP Measured Today?
WITH TWO RULERS!
Current assessment of JVP height requires the use of 2 rulers - a cumbersome and difficult technique to perform. This is often impractical on the wards.
Can We Improve JVP Assessment?
Research has shown that measurement of the JVP height is inaccurate and poorly reproducible. Both patients and doctors deserve better.
The JVPez™ is a first of its kind device that simplifies the task of JVP assessment. Operated with a single hand, light lines are projected onto your patient’s neck enabling measurement of JVP height and a streamlined examination.
