We purchased our first Utech PMV5000 patient monitor (with capnography function) three years ago. We found it to be very accurate. It self-calibrates and the ETCO2 was concordant both with an arterial blood gas and our Nellcor® brand portable capnograph. We were so impressed with the price and functionality of the machine that we have since bought two more - one for theatre and our treatment room. Spare ECG leads, BP cuffs, SPO2 probes and consumables are readily available at a reasonable cost.
Given the quality of the PMV5000 patient monitor, this year we decided to give Utech’s syringe and infusion pumps a try. Once calibrated to our giving sets, the infusion pump has proven to be very accurate and user friendly. The syringe pump is also easy to use and unlike our expensive Alaris® pumps, have been compatible with any syringe. We plan to purchase more of them as the need arises.
On one occasion a staff member accidentally allowed the capnography to suck a large anount of water into the components. David Yin, the Australian distributor for Utech was very helpful and efficient with the repair - which was also reasonably priced.
We have no hesitation recommending Utech and their representative, David Yin.

We recently purchased a vet clinic and wanted to upgrade existing equipment to provide a high standard of care to our patients, however we are on a limited budget. Utech Medical Device Pty Ltd was not a company I was familiar with, however they were recommended by a friend. They provided a high quality anesthetic monitor and kept me updated with the order, with a price that was much more affordable for our budget
