KOVEN DVM-4500 Volume Flowmeter Review 

Add to compare


The KOVEN DVM-4500 volume flowmeter is a system that is not something you’re likely to have seen elsewhere. It comes with unique bayonet-styled probes that allow for incredibly accurate blood flow assessments during Vascular, Cardiothoracic, or Transplant Surgery. 

Features 

The DVM-4500 is equipped with incredibly advanced vascular testing equipment that allows for the assessment of blood flow during complex surgeries in a way that is guaranteed to be both safe and easy-to-use. 

  • This volume flow meter is characterized by its thin bayonet-styled probes that offer the flexibility required to easily, and safely, access the arteries. 
  • Analysis can be performed easily with the use of the large, color, touchscreen monitor. 
  • The system also provides memory storage that is capable of storing up to 30 unique waveforms — which can easily be exported into PDF and DICOM files. 
  • Comes with an intraoperative probe selection that guarantees to be autoclavable and pre-sterile for safe surgical use.

Pros and Cons 

A list of pros and cons of the KOVEN DVM-4500 Volume Flowmeter System.  


PROS:

  • KOVEN has made sure to guarantee that the DVM-4500 is 100% safe and surgery-ready by providing a selection of pre-sterile attachments meant to be used for intraoperative flow testing. 
  • The large touchscreen monitor allows for both easy testing and easy analysis of recorded waveforms.  
  • Memory storage allows up to 30 unique waveforms to be saved into the system before you will have to export them into reports in PDF or DICOM compatible files. 

CONS:

  • As was mentioned in the conclusion, the DVM-4500 was created for a very specific use. That means that it cannot and should not be used in certain applications.
