DRE Veterinary Unveils Tabletop Anesthesia Machine

April 29, 2009 (PRLEAP.COM) Health News
DRE Veterinary - a premier supplier of veterinary surgery equipment - recently unveiled the DRE Compact Mini, a tabletop non-rebreathing anesthesia machine designed for use on rodents and other small animals. It features a handle for easy transport, and is available with a new or professionally calibrated Isoflurane or Sevoflurane vaporizer.

True to its name, the DRE Compact Mini weighs only about 15.5 pounds, stands approximately a foot tall and has a small 7" by 7" footprint. Veterinarians and researchers in need of portability can get the DRE Compact Mini with an attractive hard-shell carrying case.

The addition of the DRE Compact Mini further solidifies DRE Veterinary as a complete source for affordable anesthesia products, says Jim Evans, Directory of DRE Veterinary.

"DRE Veterinary has become a complete source for anesthesia machines, as our selection covers the needs of nearly every veterinary facility," says Evans. "We offer anesthesia machines suited for use on animals of nearly every size, from rodents to cats and dogs to equine and bovine."

For veterinary surgeons working with large animals, DRE Veterinary sells the DRE Titan. Veterinary surgeons can utilize the Titan for simple anesthesia functions like controlling spontaneous breathing, as well as more rigorous functions like controlling animal ventilation.

"The DRE Titan is extremely effective, easy to use and maintain, and very dependable," says Patricia Hogan, VMD, ACVS, Director of Surgery at the Ruffian Equine Medical Center at Belmont Park. "I am so pleased with the Titan and the DRE service team that I have ordered two more Titans for the Ruffian Equine Medical Center at Belmont Park."

DRE Veterinary's selection of affordable veterinary anesthesia machines includes the DRE Premier, which is perfect for rebreathing and non-rebreathing animal applications, such as spaying, neutering, dental, emergency and pre-op induction procedures. Veterinarians can choose the DRE Premier in a rolling stand or wall-mount configuration.

For universities and research facilities, DRE Veterinary sells the Optimax, a flexible high-end anesthesia workstation that holds two vaporizers. The Optimax is a rebreathing machine with a coaxial or conventional CO2 absorber and dual vaporizer manifold with interlocking capability.

The DRE Compact Mini, DRE Titan, DRE Premier and Optimax are available now. Veterinarians, veterinary surgeons and researchers can learn complete details and view images of all DRE Veterinary products by visiting www.dreveterinary.com.
