Strong legs help the horse to be the first at finish.  A healthy heart is the guarantee of constant winning.


During the training, the heart of a healthy sport horse experiences serious stress that might affect the animal. Even the slightest cardiac dysfunction will immediately result in poor performance of the horse.


Electrocardiography (ECG) allows monitoring the horse’s heart activity, timely detecting heart problems, and helps to manage the problems promptly.  Moreover, it is well known that horses with enlarged hearts show the most incredible results at the race.  ECG is not only a tool for selecting such animals but it also ensures effective continuous work for improving their inherent abilities.


Poly-Spectrum-8-V-HL Veterinary Digital ECG System for Horses and Large Animals is a smartphone-sized portable instrument suitable for the veterinary hospital, clinic, clinical networks, and experimental research in small animals.


Poly-Spectrum-8-V-HL key features:


· Standard 12-lead ECG.


· Special ECG electrodes with 6-meter cable – for horses and other large animals.


· Clear artefact-free recording and processing.


· Intelligent software with veterinary-specific algorithm, numeric ECG data.


· Intra-operative ECG monitoring during surgery and recovery, and experimental research.


· Extensive database, HL7 compatibility.

Standard 12-lead ECG


Poly-Spectrum-8-V-HL can record ECG in horses from the standard (I, II, III) and augmented (aVR, aVL, aVF) leads, as well as from the horse-specific base-apex and Y leads.  The recorded ECG data are displayed on the screen, stored in the computer database, shared, and printed out on any printer.


Skin-safe electrodes


Poly-Spectrum-8-V-HL is supplied with the reusable peripheral plate-electrodes that feature a 2-meter cable.  The long cable assures mobility for a patient which makes a recording of ECG in large animals even more convenient.  


The plate-electrodes are easy to apply.  At the same time, the electrodes enable better skin contact, lower impedance, and guarantee excellent signal quality and provide high-quality ECG recording.


Intelligent software with Veterinary-specific algorithm


The supplied software features a veterinary-specific algorithm.  It ensures automatic QRS complex detection, calculation of all temporal parameters, and report generation.  


Exceptionally high-quality low-noise physiological preamplifiers, combined with high-efficiency digital filters and signal-processing algorithms, were specifically designed for Poly-Spectrum-8-V-HL based on extensive research and development.  They ensure excellent noise suppression, clear ECG recording, and reliable, reproducible calculation of ECG parameters.


The QRS complex is the combination of three of the graphical deflections seen on a typical electrocardiogram (EKG or ECG).  It is usually the central and most visually prominent part of the ECG tracing.  It corresponds to the depolarization of the right and left ventricles of the heart and contraction of the large ventricular muscles.


This allows not only better diagnostics, but also reliable monitoring for any changes in follow-up assessments over prolonged periods of time.


Intra-operative ECG monitoring


Designed to work in the electro-magnetically harsh OR environment, Poly-Spectrum-8-V-HL can be used as a reliable ECG monitor during surgery.  It ensures sound notification for every detected QRS complex and shows the current heart beat rate in real time.


Database and data export


ECG measurement data and interpretation, as well as exam reports, are saved in a well-organized software database.  The data and reports can be printed out either at the time of the assessment, or at a later time, and shared with a referring doctor or researcher.


ECG parameters can be exported to Excel spreadsheets and other statistical software for further data analysis making it an ideal tool for research projects.




The device is pocket-sized, and can be placed in a Carrying Case – along with a notebook computer – and can be powered from the computer.  Hence, it can be used both in the clinic and on an outpatient visit.


This means that long-term ECG monitoring system is always at hand no matter where you perform surgery: at your clinic or at a patient’s location.


Software compatibility


Neurosoft Software enables highly efficient operation – saving both capital and operating costs – through a number of compatibility features:


Multiple Neurosoft Software:  Neurosoft Software for various Neurosoft instruments can be installed on the same computer – with no conflict between them.  Moreover, all software can share a single database – for greater convenience and work-flow efficiency.


Multiple computers:  Although only one computer can be used for diagnostic test data recording, each Neurosoft Software License allows using software on an unlimited number of computers.  Thus, the data can be recorded on one computer, and then, the data can be shared, analyzed, reviewed on other computers – with no additional Software Licenses.


Other applications:  Neurosoft Software can operate on a computer with Microsoft Office applications – Word, Excel, Outlook, PowerPoint, Access, Project, as well as Adobe and accounting software.  This is particularly efficient in smaller clinics.


Internet:  Computers with Neurosoft Software installed can be connected to the Internet.  In an unlikely and rare event that a Microsoft Operating System update affects a Neurosoft software component, it can be restored by Neurosoft software re-installation, with no loss of data. 


Information system integration


Most clinics, networks and research institutions are equipped with information systems to store and process their data.  HL7 (Health Level 7) is the most commonly used interface engine for exchange, integration, sharing and retrieval of electronic data.


HL7-compatibility allows integrating Poly-Spectrum-8-V-HL into the information system of a veterinary clinic, clinical network, or research institution.
