Advanced Surgical Monitoring
We understand that facing your pet's upcoming surgery can be a challenging and stressful time for you and your family. At Hope Springs, our teams work closely and carefully to provide the safest, most effective surgical services to our patients. Through our use of high quality, advanced surgical monitoring equipment and procedures, our doctors and technicians consistently reduce risk to our patients, while decreasing their discomfort and pain. Year in and year out, our clients and patients trust us to carefully take extra steps to ensure safety, comfort and peace of mind.
We know that safety goes beyond equipment and technology, and that's why we staff all of our operating rooms with a dedicated, specifically trained and licensed surgical technician. Responsible for closely monitoring our patients throughout their procedure, our experienced and skilled surgical technicians communicate our patients' status with the operating veterinarian to stay ahead of any changes or concerns that may arise. Together, our technicians and surgeons proactively work to prevent unnecessary complications or challenges to your pet's procedure.
Our doctors and technicians successfully utilize advanced surgical monitoring equipment to closely watch our patients' vital signs, including:
- Heart rate
- Respiratory rate
- End tidal volume
- Blood pressure
- Oxygen saturation via pulse oximetry
- Electrocardiogram reading (indicating electrical activity of heart)
We welcome your questions regarding our state of the art, advanced surgical monitoring equipment and our advanced surgical team, and we're happy to discuss your pet's procedure or specific needs with you.
