Description

Sentier Vetcorder™


EVERY PATIENT | EVERY TIME

The Sentier Vetcorder™ offers an alternative to outdated, high cost and bulky monitors. As a portable smart monitor, it stays with your patient from admission through discharge.

Touch Screen Interface
The touch screen interface is easy to navigate and consumes very little battery life. All your essentials are available from the home screen.

Continuous Monitoring
Continuous monitoring of ECG, SpO2 and Heart Rate. An audible "beep" can be heard whenever a heart rate is detected. Over 12 hours of battery life means you can monitor several patients from intake through recovery before recharging.

Monitor on Android & iOS
While using Monitor Vitals, you can connect to a tablet with the Vetcorder Monitor app to view a larger screen. This enables viewing of patient vitals up to 30 feet away.

Daily Check
A 30-second recording of ECG and SpO2 saved under a pet file that includes name, weight and age. Take many recordings of an individual patient over a longer period of time during their stay in the hospital.

Temperature
An on-board temperature sensor allows you to take quick readings at a moment’s notice. Simply select the “temperature” feature, hold the sensor to the pet’s ear, push the button and wait a few seconds for the reading to complete.

Bluetooth Data Transfer
All recorded data can be transferred to our mobile application via Bluetooth 4.0 technology. Once connected, you can download the data and view measurements from Daily Checks as a daily, weekly or monthly trend.

Recovery Room: Monitor Until Awake
We know there is no replacement for having hands on the animal, yet emergencies arise that can take attention away during the course of recovery. Technicians and pet owners get peace of mind knowing that every pet is monitored until full recovery.

In the Field: Mobile Monitoring
Practicing in the field comes with unique challenges, among them is monitoring. The Vetcorder is capable of supplying every veterinarian and technician in the field with monitoring solutions.

Key Features
- Over 12 hours of continuous monitoring
- 3 months standby
- USB and Bluetooth 4.0 compatible
- Size: 89mm x 56mm x 13mm (3.5" x 2.2" x 0.5")


HOW CLINICS USE THE VETCORDER

Examination Room: Spot Check
When Pieces’ owner leaves, her vital signs begin to rise immediately. With Vetcorder, the veterinary technician can take a spot check in the exam room before "white coat syndrome" begins to take effect.

Recovery Room: Monitor Until Awake
We know there is no replacement for having hands on the animal, yet emergencies arise that can take attention away during the course of recovery. Technicians and pet owners get peace of mind knowing that every pet is monitored until full recovery.

The Case for Vet corder in Recovery:


According to a recent study, more than half of the deaths tied to veterinary surgery happened within three hours of recovering from anaesthesia, which is used in a multitude of minor procedures. *Note 1

In a 2016 study, 57 percent of dogs and 35.5 percent of cats that underwent procedures using anaesthesia experienced an adverse event, including:
arousal or breakthrough pain (14.9%), hypoventilation (13.5%), hypo tension (10.3%), arrhythmias (5.8%), hyperthermia/hypothermia (5.0%), airway complications (4.8%), recovery excitation (4.6%), aspiration risk (4.5%), desaturation (2.8%), hypertension (1.7%) and other ailments (3.7%). *Note 2

The study found that using monitoring tools like a Vetcorder can be easily integrated in vet practices to provide valuable evidence and data for veterinarians, veterinary technicians and anesthetists to maintain optimal health for their patients during procedures and in recovery.

The Vetcorder is a small portable ECG and pulse oximeter unit. It’s very sensitive and picks up a signal when larger machines can’t get a reading.


What’s good about it

The Vetcorder can be Bluetooth-connected to an iPad so the results are displayed on a clear, easy-to-read screen. We often have an animal in a cage with the iPad sitting on top so it can be seen from anywhere. I might be sitting at a desk 20 or 30 metres away and can still monitor the pulse ox and the ECG without difficulty. It also has an inbuilt thermometer that just needs to be pushed up against the animal’s skin to take a reading of the surface temperature.

The pulse ox uses a standard probe that attaches to the tongue or foot. The ECG has two metal clips that are attached to the left front leg and back right leg. It also has some small needle probes that are very useful with my exotics work. Clips won’t work with lizards but the needle probes can be pushed through the skin and into the muscle to pick up the ECG.

The whole unit is about the size of a credit card and about one centimetre thick. It’s USB-charged and once fully charged, the battery will last for about a week. It has adjustable volume and the alarm can be turned off. If there’s an unusual ECG trace, the read-out on the iPad can be saved as an image and emailed to a specialist.


What’s not so good
We’ve had to replace the lingual probe for the pulse ox a few times but, to be honest, I think that’s just normal wear and tear.
