Cuff sizing should be easy, unlike the familiar and sometimes tedious process of wrangling a cat with a measuring tape. That is why at SunTech, we designed our vet cuffs with the users in mind. Our goal is to make your blood pressure measurements simple and effortless.
Have you heard the requirement for blood pressure (BP) readings that the cuff must be at the same height as the patient’s heart? You may already be aware that this is necessary for all oscillometric monitors to get the most accurate readings possible.
SunTech Medical Launches New Vet BP Monitor Carrying Case
We are very excited to announce the release of a new Vet BP Monitor carrying case made for our Vet monitors. This new case adds both a new level of utility as well as protection to our already rugged and colorful Vet BP monitors.
This case was specifically designed with our veterinarians and vet techs in mind. The durable nylon case fits any of our SunTech Vet BP monitors with their monitor accessories and has 2 large pockets on each side for cables or cuffs. Having all your BP equipment organized in this case makes moving everything from one patient room to the next a breeze.
Going off-site? Easily transport the monitor holding the top handle or simply attach the adjustable shoulder strap and wear it over the shoulder. Love pockets? We do too! There is yet another large pocket on the bottom of the case that is detachable and holds large, flat items such as equine size cuffs.
SunTech announced just last week that a new veterinary blood pressure algorithm is under development. This new algorithm will be fine-tuned for equine physiology and will offer a non-invasive way to measure blood pressure on horses. To make the announcement, SunTech exhibited at the 64th Annual Convention of the American Association of Equine Practitioners in San Francisco. I had the opportunity to attend the convention with the primary goal of better understanding how veterinarians use and measure blood pressure today in their equine patients.

This past week my colleague, Jacinta McGlone, and I visited the Wake County SPCA located in Raleigh, NC. While there, we spoke with Staff Veterinarian Dr. Anna Boswell and Medical Assistant Allison Baker at the shelter. These ladies provided us valuable information on their ongoing battle to save countless animals' lives.
A blood pressure check is one of the first procedures done when you go to the doctor. So it should be no surprise that your veterinarian will likely check your pet’s blood pressure, too!
