CAT+ Doppler Blood Pressure Kit
Take the pressure out of blood pressure monitoring with the all British CAT+ Doppler Blood Pressure System.
Your patient’s beating pulse
The CAT+ Doppler is the heart of the CAT+ BP kit, but you don’t need to use the whole kit to benefit. As well as taking blood pressure in clinics many of our clients simply tape the CAT+ on and listen to their patients pulse during anesthesia.
Why choose the CAT+ Doppler Blood Pressure system?
Whether measuring blood pressure in a clinic, in surgical procedures or simply as a pulse quality monitor, the CAT+ gives you:
- Improved patient safety
- The reassurance to diagnose and prescribe
- An ability to track the efficacy of treatment
- Helps improve client compliance as they can see the effect of your treatment
- Helps generate profits either as part of an ongoing screening program or as part of an anesthetic fee
If your patient’s BP, pulse rate, or quality of pulse changes you will immediately hear it.
It’s as easy as 1 2 3…
Simply prepare the fur over the pulse you want to use; tail, brachial, radial or even femoral.
1. Swab the fur with alcohol (it gets the oil out), and apply a generous dollop of ultrasound gel
2. Lightly hold or tape the probe over the pulse
3. Switch on and adjust the volume to suit or use the enclosed headphones provided
The ability to measure and monitor blood pressure trends provides important data about patient cardiovascular status and may help define an approach to treatment. Blood pressure monitoring is a vital part of a small animal practice.
