Electrocardiograms

We use the BASi Vetronics ECG analyzer for electrocardiograms at Sunnycrest Animal Care Center. The Vetronics analyzer not only records the ECG tracing but also analyzes the tracing and provides a full diagnostic report.  The report includes a diagnosis as well as recommendations for treatment and long-term follow up.  The company has cardiologists on staff who we consult with in complicated cases.

The developers of the software and hardware for the Vetronics Analyzer and founders of Vetronics were Professors Jorge Aunon and Clare McGillem of the Purdue University School of Electrical Engineering and Professor Walter Weirich of the Purdue School of Veterinary Medicine. The methods of analysis developed for the ECG Analyzer are computationally intensive and became economically feasible only with the advent of the personal computer.
