SUGGESTED DOPPLER AND ACCESSORIES FOR VETERINARY USE

Prices effective January 15, 2013


MODEL 811-B DOPPLER ULTRASOUND

$670.00 with one probe.  We highly recommend a spare probe because at some time the probe will fail and you will be out of business.  Use an infant flat probe for most animals.  Exotic birds require a special probe.

How it is used: The Doppler is used for monitoring blood flow acoustically and for making blood-pressure measurements indirectly using an inflatable cuff.  The method is like that used on humans; the Doppler substitutes for the stethoscope.  Systolic pressure is measured by reading the manometer when the blood flow first returns as cuff pressure is lowered.  However, only systolic pressure is usually measured.

Diastolic measurements can be made but they are not very accurate and require lots of subjective judgement.

The Doppler comes complete with one probe (usually infant flat), 2 bottles of coupling gel, rechargeable battery, charging transformer, and operator's manual.

Manometer (Riester) - $126.00.

 

SOFTCHECK CUFFS

SoftCheck cuffs are new to Parks.  These are vinyl and are intended for single-use or limited-use applications - They can be reused but should not be expected to last as long as a regular blood pressure cuff.  Most people consider them disposable after a few uses.

989-1006-10 Size 1 Soft Check Cuff (for 3 - 6 cm) $9.95
989-1015-03 Size 2 Soft Check Cuff (for 4 - 8 cm) $9.95
989-1014-03 Size 3 Soft Check Cuff (for 6 - 11 cm) $9.95
989-1008-03 Size 4 Soft Check Cuff (for 7 - 14 cm) $9.95
989-1009-03 Size 5 Soft Check Cuff (for 8 - 15 cm) $9.95
989-1010-03 Size 6 Soft Check Cuff (for 13 - 20 cm) $11.95
     
989-1003-00 Welch Allyn Velcro Newborn B.P. cuff (for 10-14 cm) $24.50
989-1004-00 Welch Allyn Velcro Infant B.P. cuff (for 14-20 cm) $23.16

The suggested starter package requires a Model 811-B with an infant flat probe.  Additionally, you must purchase a manometer, and 2 or 3 cuffs.  The size of the cuff required depends upon the size of the animal.  The accuracy of the blood pressure measurement depends on the proper cuff width for the limb used.  It is also possible to have anatomical hiding of the artery, which causes inaccuracy.  Generally, you want to know the measured blood pressure at the start of an operation and continue to measure periodically during and after the operation.  The absolute value is probably not measureable except with an indwelling catheter, which is prohibitively expensive.  A relatively accurate measurement, looking for change, is what is normally used.

Common sites for cuff placement are above the forepaw and at the base of the tail.  Click here for our "Blood Pressure Measurements on Animals" PDF (requires Adobe Acrobat).

Model 811-BL ($729) has a cautery suppressor circuit to shut off the sound when the cautery is on.  Anything that sparks is a radio transmitter and the doppler is a sensitive radio receiver.

Carrying Cases: Two styles available.  They may be ordered with the unit (cheaper overall) or later if you wish.  The model 800 case is large enough to hold a bottle of gel, charger and a probe - $125.00 if ordered with the doppler, $160.00 if ordered later, without the unit.  The model 901 case is large enough to hold the manometer, gel, battery charger and a few cuffs.  It is $130.00 if ordered with the doppler and $167.00 if ordered later, without the unit.
