What is included when I purchase a Vet20 BP system?
The system includes the BP monitor, patient hose, 6 BP cuffs (sizes #1 to #6), a product manual and 4 AA batteries.
What power options are available?
The SunTech Vet20 can be powered by batteries or an AC adapter.
How many measurements can I store in Memory?
You can store up to 50 measurements. The monitor has a revolving memory. When you take your 51st measurement, it will be listed as measurement #1.
How do I delete BP data from memory?
Select the Memory button and touch the Delete button. Before the memory is cleared, you will be asked to confirm or cancel the deletion. When you clear the Memory, you delete all measurements.
For medium-sized dogs, which animal mode do I choose?
Use cuff size as the determination factor. If a #3 cuff or smaller is the best fit, choose small animal mode. If #4 or larger, choose large animal mode.
How do I choose the correct cuff size?
Wrap the cuff around the patient’s limb and make sure the index line falls within the range marker. If two different cuff sizes fit the patient, choose the larger size.
How long will the batteries last?
250+ BP measurements can be expected from typical alkaline batteries. Lithium batteries will provide even more measurements. Battery life is very dependent on the touch screen display ON time. To maximize life, SunTech suggests setting the Auto OFF timer to 1 minute.
Can I use this monitor on awake and anesthetized animals?
Yes. The SunTech Vet20 can be be used on anesthetized animals as well as awake animals.
How do I keep the cuff from slipping down the limb or coming off?
Attach the cuff as tight as possible. Extra attention will be needed on species with dense or thick fur. If the cuff will not stay attached, check the Velcro for fur and remove if possible.
