petMAP Classic

Electronic Blood Pressure Measurement

 

petMAP™ is a new class of electronic blood pressure measurement device.  It is pocket size small, and specifically designed for cats and dogs.

New proprietary optimization features enhance blood pressure accuracy, and are available only in petMAP™...species specific (cat or dog) and cuff site optimizations.  You simply select.

petMAP™ provides systolic, diastolic, MAP, and heart rate utilizing proprietary new oscillometric technology for enhanced sensitivity, accuracy, and performance.  petMAP™ is based on intra-arterial measurements.

The best way to learn to use the petMAP is to practice taking readings on you finger. This will allow you to get comfortable with the device prior to using it on patients.  Even after practice, it may take 10 - 25 minutes to get the 4-8 good readings (minimal animal motion during the reading and the determination completed in under 45-60 seconds) needed to accurately assess the animal's blood pressure.  The use of petMAP's unique "Nominal Session BP Value" (NSBP) is recommended as the charted BP for the session since it eliminates "outliers" which can distort an ordinary average of the blood pressure values and hence is a more robust measure of the animal's true pressure during the session. 

The palm-sized petMAP™ provides systolic, diastolic, mean arterial pressure, and heart rate using the oscillometric method. The accurate, easy-to-use device takes measurements without clipping, gel, a transducer, or speaker box, so pets are less afraid. Seven cuff sizes are included ranging in size from 2.0cm to 5.5cm.
CritterCuffs™ are designed to be used with the petMAP™ to form a system specifically designed for sensitive and accurate blood pressure measurement in companion animals.  There are nine sizes available ranging from 2.0cm to 8.0cm.  Cuffs are used without clipping, gel, a transducer, or speaker box.
