VetSpecs® SM100

User-configurable Modular Vital Signs Monitoring System

 

The SM100 is a digital modular system consisted of two display platforms, as shown above, and up to five parameter modules to provide

  • Capnography
  • Noninvasive Blood Pressure (NIBP)
  • ECG (with esophageal probes)
  • Pulse Oximetry
  • Airway-direct Respiration
  • Core-body or Rectal Temperatures
  • Bluetooth Wireless Pulse
  • Diagnostic Six-lead ECG

The 10.5” display platform is for vital signs monitoring in surgery and diagnostic ECG test, while the smaller 5.6” display platform is for vital signs monitoring in dentistry, blood pressure testing, ECG screening, and wireless monitoring in anesthetic recovery or intensive care.

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. You may leave the 10.5” display platform in your surgical suite, and take only the module(s) to the 5.6” display platform for use in the treatment room or exam room. If you need to use both display platforms at the same time, you can purchase a second module package you need at any time.

Main Module:   4.6 x 3.9 x 1 inches (118 x 100 x 25 mm)
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)

 

I. Monitoring in Surgery

8

11.1 x 7.7 x 1.9 inches (282 x 195 x 48 mm), 2.6 lbs., 10.5” HD Screen

 

For comprehensive vital signs monitoring, connect the main module, NIBP module, and mainstream capnography module to the 10.5” display platform, which may be placed on a flat surface or hung on a wall or IV pole. The monitor provides ECG, core-body or rectal temperatures, pulse oximetry, blood pressure, capnography, and heartbeats and respiratory sounds. See the screen display in the two pictures 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 features advanced mainstream 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 the airway adapter on the mainstream capnography module 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-body Temperature with Esophageal Probe

For monitoring in surgery, the SM100 registers ECG, heart rate, and core-body 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

15

6.75 x 4.5 x 1.75 inches (170 x 115 x 45 mm), 1.2 lbs., 5.6” HD screen

 

For easy to set up and effective monitoring in dentistry, connect the main module to the 5.6” display platform, which may be placed on a flat surface, or hung on a wall, anesthesia machine, or IV pole. The monitor provides ECG, rectal temperature, pulse oximetry, airway-direct respiration or capnography, and heartbeats and respiratory sounds. See the screen display in the two pictures above. For monitoring in dentistry, the monitor registers ECG and heart rate with the ECG leads of flat clips, and the patient’s temperature with a rectal sensor.

 

III. Blood Pressure Testing

11

 

For blood pressure testing, connect only the NIBP module to the 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. See the screen display in the picture 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

12

 

For ECG screening, connect the main module with only the ECG leads to the 5.6” display platform. The monitor displays cascaded three lines of ECG tracings on one screen, as shown in the picture 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. Wireless Monitoring in Anesthetic Recovery or Intensive Care

13

 

The SM100 offers optional Bluetooth Wireless Pulse, designed specifically for wireless monitoring in anesthetic recovery or intensive care. The Bluetooth Wireless Pulse, which comes with a pulse sensor band and a wearable Bluetooth module, monitors the pulse of a patient up to 10 yards away. All you need to do is to wrap the sensor band on a leg of the patient and secure the Bluetooth module on the same leg with medical elastic gauze.

 

VI. Diagnostic ECG Test

7

 

The SM100 offers optional Diagnostic Six-lead ECG, which comes with a module and a set of ECG leads. For diagnostic ECG test, connect only the six-lead ECG 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.
