More details about PregnaScan

What do I gain if I use PregnaScan during my pregnancy?

What does one gain, if they aren’t driving a car blindfolded? Or what does one gain, if they are provided with the information about the daily changes of their own health? Higher level of safety? Better decisions, made in time?

The idea of measuring many of these parameters listed above might sound as a novelty. A novelty, since until today we didn’t have the right device to collect this amount of data. And without data, how can we expect to fine tune our health? How can we expect to detect processes that do not have any symptoms at the start? Regular measurements can be used to obtain data. By these data we gain time, since illnesses can be detected earlier. And time can save life.

So, PregnaScan is a “digital lab”, and as such, it’s most important task is to provide and record data during a time period when for sure no one would like to drive a car blindfolded: during pregnancy.

What exactly does PregnaScan measure?

The system has been developed to measure and record the following parameters:

  • Pulse rate
    • Informs you of the number of heartbeats per minute. If the value is too high or too low it can mean some kind of illness.
  • SpO2
    • Informs you of the oxygen saturation in your blood vessels. The more oxygen is in your blood, the better your cells function.
  • Pulse wave analysis
    • Informs you of the state of your cardiovascular system.
  • Heart frequency variability analysis
    • Informs you of the state of the vegetative nervous system automatically regulating your internal processes
  • Blood pressure diary
    • Many women don’t measure their blood pressure regularly during their pregnancy, even though it may be a very sensitive disease marker. Or in case if you have been measuring it, you no longer need to write down the values your blood pressure on paper – your phone is always with you!
  • Weight diary
    • Excessive and inadequate weight gain can also lead to problems during pregnancy. Keep track of how much the scale shows!
  • Event diary
    • You can record any complaints, oddities, or even pleasure (e.g. “The baby first moved today!”) – so you’ll be able to look back at the changes of the 9 months later – and your results will be more easily interpreted as well.

Who will evaluate my data?

PregnaScan is a “digital lab” service, so it works on the principle of any private lab. There you are “buying” a service of them providing data about you (haemogram, ions, liver enzymes, etc.). However, for the evaluation of the results, you must consult with a competent physician.

PregnaScan works like this. You will need a doctor who can analyze what your daily measurement results mean.

The co-operating partner of our company, the supervising medical consultant will be initially Dr. Sándor Kulin, a specialist in obstetrics and gynecology. Personal consultations will be possible at his clinic in Budapest (1036 Budapest, Bécsi str. 85). Since he has been working with similar systems, he has more than 10 years of experience in tracking pregnant moms, and he knows the methods of PregnaScan well. Dr Kulin will only be responsible for tracking and evaluating your measurements, everything else related to pregnant care and giving birth will remain in the hands of the doctor of your choice!

Soon the medical evaluation team will be expanded, after the joining physicians have completed the appropriate training. From the beginning of next year you will also have the opportunity to send an invitation to your own medical practitioner to get acquainted with the PregnaScan methods and thus become a co-operating partner, "PregnaScan Medical".

However, now you can participate in the Premier Program only if you accept that Dr Kulin will track your results and consult with you about them.

Therefore, the measurements will be reviewed by the appointed physician according to the agreement, sums them up in the adequate frequency and sends you a report about them.

This method can assure you that the evaluating doctor didn’t find any discrepancies in the examined data, or he can notify you that you might need to take on further actions in order to keep the health of the pregnancy.

This information cannot be extracted from today's routinely performed medical examinations. The service also includes medical consultation (2), within which the measured parameters are interpreted.

1. The parts of the lab service:

  • The special measuring device for measuring – the PregnaScan pulse oximeter – in the value of 20000 HUF

  • PregnaScan app (iOS and Android) written for smartphone to perform and evaluate the measurements – it’s invaluable :)
  • The possibility to do measurements on a daily basis using PregnaScan during your pregnancy – as if you had a labor examination every day – in the value of 1000 HUF / day (so, for 6 months it’s worth 180000 HUF)

2. Parts of medical surveillance

The PregnaScan medical supervision fee consists of two items; a consultation fee and a monthly fee.

  • Personal consultation at Dr. Sándor Kulin’s clinic (Address: 1036 Budapest, Bécsi str. 85.) costs 15000 HUF per occasion. During an average pregnancy, you may need 2-3 occasions beyond the first personal consultation. Occasionally, telephone consultation of the results may be sufficient. It costs 5000 HUF. In case everything is fine, the number of consultations may be less, while in case of significant changes in the values a closer observation and more frequent consultations may be needed.
  • The telemonitor’s monthly fee includes a 7-10 day review of the measurements (if necessary daily) or sending a summary of the evaluation of the same frequency to the given e-mail address of the mom. In the frames of an introductory sale, the monthly fee for the first 100 applicants is 0 HUF. In the future, the monthly fee will be 8000 HUF per month.
  • These consultation numbers are normative. The number of consultations you need during your pregnancy will always be agreed with you by the Doctor. You can pay cash or credit card for medical consultations at the consultation venue. (1036 Budapest, Bécsi street 85, 3rd floor)

  3. If you have successfully registered and paid you will have the opportunity to book an appointment for a personal meeting, where you get the measuring device and we also show you how to use it. On this meeting you will have the chance to ask your questions, and book an appointment for a personal consultation with Dr Sándor Kulin (1036 Budapest, Bécsi street 85), who will be your PregnaScan doctor during your pregnancy.
  4. As soon as you get home, you can start your daily measurements. Besides the PregnaScan measurements we advise you to also record your weight and blood pressure values in the app.
  5. In addition, you will get an invite to a private group on Facebook, in which you can discuss your questions and comments with the other moms and our moderators, and you will also get motivating messages.
  6. In the right time you will get medical feedbacks about your measurements, and you can participate in medical consultations so that your health can be kept on the right track.
 

What happens after my pregnancy is over?

After your pregnancy is over you can keep the pulse oximeter that you have been using for your measurements, and you grew to love. You can keep measuring your pulse and oxygen saturation at any time. You can still view your data for 3 years, but you will only be able to see PregnaScan if you buy a new subscription. For example, to follow the effects of postnatal body shaping, to monitor your chronically ill patients, or to follow another pregnancy - we will inform you about these options after the birth, but until that let’s focus on you and your baby.
