Modular Vital Signs Monitoring and Screening System
The SM100 is a user-configurable modular system with a main 10.5” display platform, an optional 5.6” display platform, and up to four parameter modules to provide
- Capnography (choice of mainstream or micro-flow™ side-stream)
- Noninvasive Blood Pressure
- ECG (with esophageal probes)
- Pulse Oximetry
- Core or Rectal Temperatures
- Airway-direct Respiration
- Diagnostic Six-lead ECG (optional)
|Main Module:||4.6 x 3.9 x 1 inches (118 x 100 x 25 mm)|
|Blood Pressure (NIBP) Module:||4.3 x 2.5 x 0.9 inches (110 x 63 x 22 mm)|
|Mainstream Capnography Module:||1.8 x 1.3 x 0.9 inches (45 x 33 x 22 mm)|
The main 10.5” display platform is designed mainly for comprehensive vital signs monitoring. It can also be used for blood pressure testing and ECG screening or diagnostic test. The smaller 5.6” display platform (optional) is more suitable for use outside the surgical suite, for monitoring in dentistry and blood pressure testing or ECG screening in exam rooms. If your SM100 comes with both display platforms, you may place the 5.6” display platform in the treatment room while leave the 10.5” display platform in the surgical suite. The modular design allows you to configure the system according to the monitoring or testing needs for the patient, simply by connecting the needed module(s) to the display platform at the point of care. If you frequently need to use both display platforms at the same time, you can purchase a second module you need at any time.
I. Monitoring in Surgery
The Main 10.5” Display Platform: 11.1 x 7.7 x 1.9 inches (282 x 195 x 48 mm), 2.6 lbs.
For monitoring in surgery, connect the main module, NIBP module, and capnography module to the main 10.5” display platform. The monitor provides ECG, core temperature, pulse oximetry, blood pressure, and capnography, along with heartbeats and respiratory sounds, as shown above.
The monitor saves all registered waveforms and readings on a USB flash drive. Simply take the flash drive to your computer and transfer the saved data, which is compatible with ALL practice management software systems. You can review the data, and print out a monitoring report, as shown below, through any office laser or ink-jet printer.
1. Monitoring Ventilation with Capnography
The SM100 offers the choice of mainstream capnography or micro-flow™ side-stream capnography, which provides CO2 waveforms, an end-tidal CO2 (EtCO2) reading, a fractional inspired CO2 (FiCO2) reading, a respiratory rate (RR), a respiratory sound, and apnea alarms. To apply, insert an airway adapter between the endotracheal tube and the breathing circuit after the patient is intubated.
2. Monitoring Oxygenation with Pulse Oximetry
The SM100 offers three veterinary-specific SpO2 sensors. The lingual sensor and the leg/toe sensor come standard, while the rectal sensor is optional. The leg/toe sensor and the rectal sensor are designed specifically for use in dentistry. Employing a high-power LED light source, the leg/toe sensor can work even at sites covered with pigmented tissue and dense fur.
3. Monitoring Circulation with Noninvasive Blood Pressure
The SM100 employs a breakthrough method for noninvasive blood pressure (NIBP) measurement - the volume plethysmography. This technology works in the same principle as the Doppler method, but is much easier to use, and provides systolic, diastolic, and mean arterial pressures, a real-time pulse rate, and pulse waveforms. The volume plethysmography has been proven to be effective and accurate in cats and dogs of all sizes, anesthetized or conscious. See the NIBP module picture above.
4. Monitoring ECG and Core Temperature with Esophageal Probe
For monitoring in surgery, the SM100 registers ECG, heart rate, and core temperature with an esophageal probe. After the patient is intubated, insert the probe into the esophagus. Due to its proximity to the heart and ensured good contacts, the probe registers large and clean ECG tracings even in the smallest kittens. With no ECG leads attaching on the patient’s body, ECG monitoring becomes much easier than ever before. The esophageal probes are available in three different sizes, suitable for cats and dogs of all sizes.
II. Monitoring in Dentistry
The 5.6” Display Platform: 6.75 x 4.5 x 1.75 inches (170 x 115 x 45 mm), 1.2 lbs.
While both display platforms can be used for monitoring in dentistry, the smaller 5.6” display platform, which may be hung on the wall or anesthesia machine, is easier to set up in dentistry. The monitor provides ECG, rectal temperature, pulse oximetry, and airway-direct respiration or capnography, along with heartbeats and respiratory sounds, as shown above. For monitoring in dentistry, the monitor registers ECG with the flat-clip leads.
III. Blood Pressure Testing
For blood pressure testing, connect only the NIBP module to the 10.5” or 5.6” display platform. The monitor displays systolic, diastolic, and mean arterial pressure readings, a real-time pulse rate, pulse waveforms, and the averages of all measurements, as shown above. The monitor saves all registered readings on the USB flash drive. You can review the data on your computer, print out a report, as shown below, and save them in your patient database under your existing practice management software system.
IV. ECG Screening
For ECG screening, connect the main module with only the flat-clip leads to the 10.5” or 5.6” display platform. The monitor displays cascaded three lines of ECG tracings on one screen, as shown above, and saves all registered ECG tracings on the USB flash drive. You can then transfer the saved ECG to your computers, review them, and print out through any office laser or ink-jet printer. See the printout sample below. You can also save the ECG to your patient database under your existing practice management software system, or send the ECG for consultation via email.
V. Diagnostic Six-lead ECG Test
The optional Diagnostic Six-lead ECG comes with a six-lead module and a set of four flat-clip leads. For diagnostic six-lead ECG test, connect only the module to the 10.5” display platform. The monitor displays all six Leads of ECG, I, II, III, aVR, aVL, and aVF on one screen, as shown above, and saves all registered ECG tracings on the USB flash drive. You can transfer the saved ECG to any computers, review them, and print out through any office laser or ink-jet printer. See the printout sample below. You can also save the ECG to your patient database under your existing practice management software system, or send the ECG for consultation via email.
