Intensive Care Units

PLAS-LABS offers an Intensive Care System in three configurations. This system goes far beyond the conventional oxygen door and cage unit.

This unit is a self-contained life support system which provides a controlled environment designed to regulate temperature and oxygen levels. These conditions are essential in caring for the critically ill or injured patient. This method of treatment has been proven significant in increasing the likelihood of successful post-operative recovery.

Our units are the only ones available which have been conceptualized and designed from the ground up for animal intensive care use. Grounded casters included for O2 work.

Since their introduction in 1970, these Intensive Care Units have been selected by nearly every major veterinary school, U.S. government research facility, pharmaceutical testing laboratory, and many progressive private veterinary clinics. They have been shipped all over the world.

Standard Features of the Intensive Care Units:

  •  Each unit is enclosed within stainless steel for durability, ease of cleaning, and sanitation.
  •  Metabolism/Waste Pan
  •  Plastic Coated False Floor
  •  HEPA Filtration Systems with Magnehelic ™ Gauge
  •  The entire unit is mounted on a steel frame for structural integrity.
  •  The animal compartment is a separate unit attached to the frame which provides for replacement should the cage be damaged.
  •  Heavy duty stainless steel grounded casters with brakes, locks, and zerk fittings are standard.
  •  Operators’ manual and standard 12 month warranty.
