Saving Money On My Medical Condition

When you have a chronic illness, it can take a big bite out of your bank account. In addition to footing the bill for medical deductibles and prescriptions, you might also find yourself renting medical supplies or paying for testing kits. I have a terminal medical condition, and you wouldn't believe the amount of money I have spent on medical services over the years. However, a few years ago I learned how to save money, and I want to teach you the same things. My blog talks about how to save money on everything from simple medications to trips to the doctor's office.

What Multi-Parameter Veterinary Monitors Are Able To Do

Working as a vet technician in a vet clinic, you have the distinguished task of hooking pets up to all kinds of monitors. What if there was just one veterinary monitor that could be used for all of the features your clinic typically needs when caring for animals? Actually, there is. A multi-parameter vet monitor is exactly what your clinic needs to be cutting edge in pet care and pet surgeries. Here is what these single machine, multi-function monitors can do.

Monitor Heart Rate and Blood Pressure

Yes, every vet monitor typically monitors heart rate, but this type also monitors blood pressure simultaneously. There is never any need to keep track of the blood pressure with a cuff and stethoscope when you are right in the middle of a surgery and need to make sure the pet is doing okay. When the monitor is set to take both, it does.

Monitor Respiration and Temperature

All pets have different respiration rates. However, you can read with absolute certainty what the respiration rate is for each pet when each pet is connected to this type of vet monitor. You can easily check the pet's temperature too, which is helpful when you or the vet suspects infection and possibly fever from the infection. During an operation, respiration and temperature readings also alert you to times when a pet may be in distress.

Monitor SpO2, CO2, and NO2 Levels Simultaneously

Blood oxygen saturation levels (SpO2), carbon dioxide levels (CO2), and nitrous dioxide levels (NO2) all have to be carefully monitored when a pet is under heavy sedation so that the pet does not suffocate during surgery. These levels are very tricky to monitor when you have to connect numerous machines. Connecting this one multi-parameter type of monitor means that all three of these important bits of data are on the same screen.

Monitor ECG Too

Now if you hook a pet up to this type of pet monitor, you can simultaneously monitor all of the above PLUS an ECG reading as well. This is useful so that if and when a pet begins to "crash" during surgery, the vet can clearly see if it is a heart problem, an oxygen level problem, or something else. Knowing and seeing on the monitor what the problem is, helps the vet make a snap decision as to what to do to save the pet's life and finish the surgery.
