The JVP scale is a simple portable medical instrument designed and developed by Sonvisage Nig. Ltd. for the accurate and convenient measurement of the jugular venous pressure in cases where it is usually raised; such as:
- Heart failure.
- Constrictive pericarditis (JVP increases on inspiration - called Kussmaul's sign).
- Cardiac tamponade.
- Fluid overload – eg. renal disease.
The instrument has value addition potential to the process of clinical evaluation for the jugular venous pressure level by saving time and ensuring objectivity across users.
