Following the results of the ANI technology (Analgesia Nociception Index)
on the monitoring of non-communicating patients, an adaptation of the algorithm was performed to develop the PTA index (Parasympathetic Tone Activity). The PTA technology enables the evaluation of the parasympathetic part of the autonomic nervous system of animals.
The first parasympathetic tone monitoring device in the world for pets
Veterinarians face a challenge when it comes to assessing animal’s surgical stress during surgery due to the absences of clear physiological signs. That’s why we developed a heart rate variability analysis device simple of use, not operator-dependent, based on the acquisition of electrocardiographic (ECG) signal.
The PTA index provides an objective value to veterinarians to evaluate analgesia. The monitor offers a value between 0 and 100 corresponding to the percentage of activity of the parasympathetic part of the Autonomic Nervous System of the animal. The higher the value of the PTA index is the higher the animal’s comfort.
