Interpreter

Species and size specific ECG interpretation software

“Computerized ECG interpretation programs are well established in the human field. The new Vmed ECG Interpreter now makes computerized interpretation a reality in veterinary medicine. The computer reading provides a second opinion and is especially helpful for inexperienced clinicians.  When the ECG Interpreter identifies an ECG as abnormal, the analysis software can then be used to further clarify the diagnosis. The Vmed system also makes it easy to store the Interpreter report on clinic computers and to email this report to a specialist if further confirmation is needed.”  Larry Tilley, DVM, DACVIM (Internal Medicine)
