8/1/22: Elite dopplers and accessories are being discontinued and will be available until the end of 2022 or while supplies last. As an alternative to the Elite 100R Vascular Doppler, we recommend the Newman DigiDop 330R!
The Nicolet Elite 100R Vascular Doppler is an audio only, hand-held Doppler that is compact, economical and comes complete with a built-in speaker, 9-volt rechargeable battery and battery recharger. Manufacturer warranty covers 1 year labor, 5 years parts (1 year for probe).
The 5mhz vascular probe has a deeper penetration than the 8mhz probe and is most commonly used to locate hard-to-find pulses and monitoring deep veins and arteries in legs: and for ABI studies in larger patients.
The 8mhz vascular probe has a shallow penetration and is best used to assess superficial vessels. It is most commonly used for Ankle/Brachial Indes (ABI) studies, finding pedal pulses and would care applications.
