Wireless Products Overview

Go Wireless…Go Digital with Vmed Bluetooth wireless monitors.  Bluetooth is highly tolerant of interference and is omni-directional to a range of 100 meters, line of sight.  All controls except keyboard entry are at the patient’s side.  Save space, eliminate cables and store files automatically.  Vmed wireless monitors establish a wireless link to your Windows desktop, laptop or tablet computer to display real-time patient monitoring waveforms and digital data on your computer screen.  Monitor up to seven patients on one computer.  Files may be recalled for ECG and CO2 waveform analysis, transmitted by email or printed in a concise report.  All hardware, software and monitoring accessories are provided with our multi-parameter patient monitor and our ECG monitor as described below.  Works best with Windows 7, 8 and 10 computers.

The VetGard+ is a small, battery operated, wireless patient monitor that displays dynamic multiple monitoring parameters on your Windows based computer. The Bluetooth USB adapter provided establishes a wireless link to your computer. Bluetooth is omni-directional and virtually free of interference, ensuring a consistent, reliable wireless connection most anywhere in the clinic and possibly outside. The long range Bluetooth standard used in Vmed monitors has a line of sight range of 100 meters however the expected range in the clinic environment (considering signal may travel through walls, etc.) is 50-100 feet. The bonus Reviewer software adds to the VetGard’s versatility and includes dynamic playback of traces, electronic ECG calipers, help in identifying and measuring ECG complexes and a table of normal ECG values for cats and dogs.  The PC-VetGard+ is scalable in that you purchase only the monitoring parameters you want now with the flexibility of adding additional capability later without having to purchase a new monitor.  The following monitoring parameters are available:

  • ECG, Temperature, Respiration and SpO2

    VG+ in Pouch Vertical

    Includes protective pouch with hanging bracket

  • Animal validated NIBP with systolic, diastolic, MAP and heart rate calculations
  • Inspired/Expired CO2, capnograph and apnea detection
  • Inspired/Expired CO2, capnograph, apnea, N2O and anesthesia agents

PC-Display software is provided with each wireless monitor and allows real-time viewing of all monitoring information on your Windows computer. Cables and bulky equipment are a thing of the past in the modern veterinary surgical suite with VetGard+ monitors. Artifact suppression and low noise electronics offer the cleanest, most stable ECG trace possible. The VetGard+ is equipped with the Nellcor Vet-Sat animal tested digital pulse oximeter. Blood pressure and CO2 modalities are also tested and verified for use on small animals. A full range of sensors provide digital readout of heart rate, respiration rate, core body temperature, blood pressure, blood oxygen saturation levels and inspired/expired gases including CO2, N2O and five anesthesia agents all combined in a compact, battery operated monitor with revolutionary software for an interference free, wireless link to your computer. By selecting a large screen display connected to your desktop, laptop or tablet computer, patient monitoring displays are visible as never before. The PC-VetGard+ can be used in the exam room too. Use the included chest sensor and low force skin clips for quick ECG exams and pre-surgical screening.  Use the Vmed ECG Interpreter ECG interpretation software to screen for heart abnormalities that may cause problems before, during or after surgery.
