Surgical Monitoring and Patient Positioning
Most Vmed products can be used in surgery depending on the parameter being monitored. The Vmed product that is specifically for surgery is the VetGard+ multi-parameter surgical monitor. Our stand-alone blood pressure products can also be used in surgery and details of these products can be accessed at the Blood Pressure page. The VetChek miniature ECG/Recovery monitor may also be used in surgery when only ECG, respiration and temperature are required. Optional esophageal probes are available for the PC-VetChek for this application. See Accessories for details.
The VetGard+™ Monitor is a wireless, multi-parameter patient monitor that is scalable. The basic unit includes ECG, blood pressure, respiration, temperature and SpO2. Add CO2, O2, N2O and five anesthesia agents at any time without purchasing a new unit. The PC-VetGard+ weighs a mere 19 ounces with all parameters. May be used with AC line current or the internal rechargeable battery for optimum portability.
