What if you already own CASCO clinical housing?
The DRC system can be retrofitted to your current equipment, so your existing console panel can easily be upgraded. A simple three-way switch and internal wiring these units sit within the ceiling of your enclosures, protected by glass so it is safe and out of reach of patients. Contact us now to reap the rewards of this revolutionary feature.
We understand the importance of monitoring to assess and deliver the best level of care, but the harsh florescent lighting doesn't provide a calming environment for patient recovery. The Daylight Setting on our DRC lighting provides the perfect lighting solution.
The white light ensures excellent visibility, meaning veterinarians can easily carry out observations, without uprooting patients. This wavelength of light also supports the patient’s own vision, enabling them to clearly identify and recognise human faces when in recovery. This helps to further reduce levels of stress and anxiety which could potentially hinder their recovery time.
Mimicking natural daylight can also be used to maintain the patient’s usual day and night circadian rhythm. This is something which is often overlooked in veterinary practices with most cages supplied without sufficient lighting, relying on what already exists in the ward.
Sleep is considered the cornerstone of recovery and vitality, so allowing a patient to rest whilst being continuously observed brings a new level of care to veterinary practices.
Bright lights or natural daylight interferes with the hormone Melatonin. This is produced in the absence of blue and white light and helps to regulate sleep and circadian cycles. Like most mammals cats and dogs don’t have cone receptors in their eyes, which means they don’t see in the red spectrum or wavelength. By using a red light to observe veterinary patients in recovery prevents disturbing them from their natural sleep cycles and rest.
Keeping your practice clean and eliminating any harmful bacteria from cross contamination is vital. Using blue light to pinpoint dirt within the enclosure is an extremely effective way to combat the spread of infectious diseases which is all so important in a clinical setting.
The UVA light highlights areas within the patient’s habitat that requires deep cleaning by reflecting off organic material such as faeces, urine, blood, mucus and or other bodily fluids causing them to fluoresce in appearance. These organics are usually difficult to pick up with the human eye in both poorly and brightly lit environments. This specialist cleaning light allows staff to clean with confidence, giving greater visibility for deep cleaning and sterilising to promote optimum bio security to avoid cross contamination.
Whilst UV light can be destructive at certain wavelengths, this unit is completely harmless and cannot damage the eyes of any animals or humans.
Incredibly cool idea!! When I worked overnight shifts in a specialty veterinary hospital the number one issue I found was the lighting. The technicians are doing rounds every 60 minutes and the hospital stayed bright 24 hours a day. I would turn off all the lights where patients were sleeping, however in 1 hour I would be back for rounds and turning all the light back on. I was constantly worried about the rest my patients were getting. We know that rest is best for healing.Regan Zeller
