The new DRE Vetrec NXT is the next generation Central Station Cardiac Monitor.

Its design is based around the state of the art computer and software technology. The DRE Vetrec NXT is economical, configurable, and compatible with the DRE Waveline Pro and DRE Waveline Touch monitors, and includes NXT telemetry transmitters for wireless cardiac ECG monitoring. The Arrhythmia Algorithm is built on the same safe, time-proven algorithm. 96 hours of information on each patient ( up to 16 patients) is stored on this system. The operating system is powered by Windows 10 Pro and provides a highly versatile platform.

The Vetrec NXT supports both laser printers and thermal recorders. No other system provides a high level of flexibility that the Vetrec NXT offers. Each channel of the Central Station is independent, allowing the use of both Stationary and Telemetry Transmitters on a single system in any combination.

Available Combinations:

  • Hardwire System: Hardwire a DRE Waveline Pro or DRE Waveline Touch monitor to measure more parameters.
  • Wireless Telemetry: Use the NXT Transmitters to monitor ECG or incorporate a portable wireless bedside monitor for vital signs.
  • Combination of Hardwire and Wireless System: For those who want Wireless Telemetry on Channels 1-8 and want to hardwire a DRE Waveline Pro and/or a DRE Waveline Touch monitor on Channels 9-16.

The Vetrec NXT uses split-screen technology, allowing the monitoring technician to review, edit, and enter patient information while maintaining complete control and observation of all patients on the system. Stationary support includes the presentation of waveforms and all vital signs data.

This system is designed to be easy to use, yet completely configurable and adaptable to almost any veterinary hospital configuration. Often used for, but not limited to Pre & Post Surgery, ICU, Immediate Care, Ambulatory Monitoring, and Recovery.
