Taking a blood pressure on a companion animal is very different than what you experience at the doctor’s office. You can’t tell a dog or cat to sit still and be quiet throughout the entire blood pressure measurement and actually expect it to happen. It’s more similar to trying to take an infant’s BP, except these wiggly patients have fur!
To help maximize success and accuracy, we have created 4 new SunTech Vet20 videos that provide training on cuff selection, cuff placement, how to take BP measurements with the animal in different positions and the proper way to review results.
Our hope is that these videos will be used to train users and educate owners on NIBP best practices in order to provide the best medical care for your pet and patients.
