New IDEXX CardioPet ECG Device Streamlines Work Flow to Facilitate Cardiac Consultations
Wireless device enables direct ECG transmission for easier collaboration with IDEXX Telemedicine Consultants
WESTBROOK, Maine, December 9, 2014—IDEXX Laboratories, Inc. (NASDAQ: IDXX) announced the launch of the CardioPet* ECG Device, making cardiac screenings, consultations and collaboration with the board-certified cardiologists of IDEXX Telemedicine Consultants even easier. With six leads and pet-friendly clips, the CardioPet ECG Device is DICOM compliant and offers improved diagnostic quality and patient comfort. What’s more, veterinarians can now view the electrocardiogram (ECG) to ensure the quality of tracings before submitting it. Submitting an ECG no longer requires a phone call, so practices can submit cases electronically at their convenience, day or night. In addition to facilitating direct ECG transmissions, veterinarians can combine ECGs, radiographs and/or echocardiograms in a single transmission when requesting a comprehensive cardiac consultation.
“The CardioPet* ECG Device makes it easy for clients to share all the information they have on a given case,” says Donald Schofield, General Manager of IDEXX Telemedicine Consultants. “Whether used for preoperative screenings or for managing cardiac cases, this information helps our cardiology team collaborate more fully with veterinarians. The result is advanced care for patients, which is everyone’s goal.”
The CardioPet* ECG Device is available for pre-purchase with deliveries expected early in the first quarter. For more information about the CardioPet ECG Device, visit idexx.com/cardiopetecg.
