“I love our Versafuge by Heartland! It is so quiet we don’t even know its running. The counter space it saves by having rotors that easily switch out is a huge help for our small lab.”

The most vital aspects of every successful company are the foundation that the company stands on and the infrastructure that makes it all work.

Our foundation is our products.  The product tells the story of the company’s commitment and dedication. Customers know when they have purchased a quality product. The look and feel is substantial and the output is reliable and steady case after case.

Certainly, the infrastructure of a company is created upon the people who work there. When a customer calls for support, they know when staff is helpful and the tech is knowledgeable of product and process.

 

A company’s product is the life force that begins a company and the infrastructure keeps the company functioning and these two basic components combine to create a happy customer.

A happy customer is the keystone of any company because a satisfied customer, one who returns to you for all their needs and relays the word to others, helps build and maintain a healthy reputation for your products and company.

So, how do you gain and maintain a happy customer?
-Going above and beyond what is expected to manufacture a product that performs and never cuts corners makes a company authentic.
-Putting the customer first, making sure the customer is happy and always being eager to answer any questions – whether large or small-  makes a company extraordinary at customer service.
-And a company who is progressively aiming to innovate, improve and exceed the expectations of its customers is a company with a solid foundation and a passion for delivering quality products to the world.

In the ever-evolving veterinary world, it is nice to get to know a company that was founded and remains firmly grounded on quality products, exceptional customer care, and the overall happiness of its customers.

Donation to the Louisville Zoo

Louisville Zoo

In an effort to continually improve, innovate and refine our veterinary anesthesia machines, Vetland Medical continually researches the equipment and techniques used in many different facilities to determine what works, what can be improved and what changes can be made to keep the patient safe.

In 2013, Vetland Medical contacted the Louisville Zoo with the hope of observing and viewing their procedures and viewing their facilities for our own educational purposes. The Louisville Zoo agreed and soon, Vetland was invited to witness a procedure on a lion while under anesthesia.  During the procedure, we observed that the zoo was utilizing a veterinary anesthesia machine that required patients to be manually ventilated. The Vetland Medical team knows how inconvenient it is to manually ventilate a large animal such as a lion and decided to help The Louisville Zoo.

That same week, Vetland Medical donated one of our LAS-4000 Large Animal Anesthesia Machines to the Louisville Zoo and promised to work closely with them to provide technical services and support for as long as they had the machine. In return, the Louisville Zoo has helped Vetland Medical. By allowing our team to observe and learn the challenges face by a zoo, we, at Vetland Medical, can continue our history of innovation in Animal Healthcare.

The Louisville Zoo’s hospital supervisor, Jamie Huber says, “The Vetland anesthesia machine helps us provide state-of-the-art care for our animals at the Louisville Zoo.  Whether for a regular check-up or a sick animal, our new anesthesia machine gives us the access we need to treat our animals with the highest quality care.”

At Vetland Medical, we have a special place in our hearts for animals. We strive to improve veterinary healthcare through our products and appreciate the opportunity to work with the Louisville Zoo to gain knowledge on our anesthesia systems. Furthermore, we are impressed with the hard work of the Louisville Zoo to care for their animals, protect the future legacy of endangered species and educate the public on a wide range of ecological issues.

Introducing the e2 Oxygen Concentrator

e2_2Vetland Medical Sales & Services has been the manufacturer of quality veterinary anesthesia products for the last 20 years. Vetland Medical is always striving to develop the most innovative, safest and most superior products for the veterinary community around the world.

Last year, Vetland Medical worked hard on a new product called the e2 Oxygen Concentrator.

In June of 2014, Vetland Medical began selling the e2 Oxygen Concentrator and ever since the public has gotten wind of all the amazing features of the e2, they have been flying off the shelves – and for good reason!

The e2 is the most compact oxygen concentrator on the market. It produces pure, medical grade oxygen from room air at 50 PSI supply pressure and even mounts directly to most anesthesia machines.

With the e2 Oxygen Concentrator, there is no more hassle or costs for tanks, refills or deliveries – the oxygen you need is there, on hand, whenever you need it!

The e2 was designed, developed and is made in the United States specifically for veterinary use. It is easy to install, has audible/visual safety alerts and is quiet and simple to operate.

With the e2 Oxygen Concentrator, veterinarians are able to manage oxygen supply inventory and no booster is needed.

If your machine has an e cylinder manifold, you can simply hang the e2 in place of one of the tanks, while leaving the other e cylinder in place as a backup in case of a power failure.

So, how does the e2 work? Once turned on, the e2 draws in room air and separates oxygen from the air utilizing the Pressure Swing Absorption process. The e2 compresses the medical grade oxygen to 60 PSI and stores the oxygen in a reservoir for supply on demand. Once the reservoir pressure builds to 60 PSI, the compressor shuts down and enters Power Saving Mode. As your device requires oxygen, the e2 supplies a regulated steady flow of oxygen at 50 PSI. As the reservoir is depleted, the compressor energizes and starts the process over.

And why is PSI so important? 50 PSI is the “Normal Working Pressure” of all Anesthesia machines and an oxygen concentrator with low PSI will work, however at the most critical times, when the clinician needs more flow or flush, the low PSI concentrators will not meet the needs of the patient.

Anesthesia flush rates on most systems are specified to be between 18 LPM and 30 LPM at 50 PSI.

Furthermore, concentrators offering inadequate flows or pressure jeopardize patient safety.

Daily checklists of all major anesthesia machine manufacturers states the unit shall be connected to an oxygen supply that is turned on and has an adequate supply pressure of 50-55 PSI.

The e2 Oxygen Concentrator is the only compact oxygen concentrator providing the specified 50 PSI pressure for proper anesthesia machine function.

The list of benefits for using the e2 is long and the cost is justified in as little as 11 months for most clinics. So, if your veterinary facility is in need of a reliable, durable and affordable oxygen concentrator, please give Heartland Medical a call today to enquire about our new e2 Oxygen Concentrator. We’ll be happy to help!

The EX3000- The Future of Veterinary Anesthesia

 ex3000_back

At Vetland Medical, we love innovation almost as much as we love making products that improve the lives of our veterinarians and especially our pets.  We continually strive to improve our products in order to provide the veterinary community with the equipment that will ultimately refine veterinary anesthesia and veterinary medicine.

Because anesthesia can be a frightening event- and in some circumstances, life threatening – safety is of the utmost importance.  With the emphasis on safety in mind, Vetland Medical designed the Landmark EX3000 – the future of veterinary anesthesia. The EX3000 is the only electronic dual-drug delivery system in the world for veterinary use.

The EX3000 was modeled off of human-use anesthesia machines and was built to increase anesthetic accuracy and decrease errors and fatalities.   The visual and audible alarms on the EX3000 alert clinicians of any anesthetic risk parameters, making them easy to correct before they become medical emergencies.

 

The EX3000 Monitors the following top 5 risk parameters:

・ Oxygen Supply Pressure Monitor

・ Breathing Pressure Monitor

・ Apnea Monitor and audible breath sounds

・ Anesthetic drug monitor

・ Anesthetic concentration monitor for Isoflurane and Sevoflurane

 

Some common issues that may occur are:

・ The oxygen tank runs empty

・ The Pop Off valve is inadvertently left closed

・ The vaporizer is inadvertently left at induction levels

・ The breathing valve malfunctions or vaporizers malfunction

 

For these and many other clinical scenarios, the EX3000 will alert the clinician who can quickly and safely correct the errors – resulting in less anesthetic accidents and deaths.

 

At Vetland Medical, we consider our pets to be family and we know you do too. We have worked tirelessly for many years to develop the smartest, most accurate and safest veterinary anesthesia machines in the world and we have definitely set the bar high with the EX3000!
