The Animal Intensive Care Unit (AICU)
by Lyon Technologies

Advanced technology has enabled the Animal Intensive Care Unit (AICU) to digitally monitor and control temperature and humidity. Armed with an audio-visual safety alarm, this accurate and reliable unit provides unequaled precision in environmental control. Veterinary tested and designed, the new AICU has set even a higher standard for sophisticated environmental support for your birds and other small animals including puppies, kittens, and reptiles.

The AICU was designed, veterinary tested, and proven by Hannis L. Stoddard, D.V.M. This AICU is very versatile and can be used for handfeeding babies, pediatrics and orphaned or abandoned animals. The AICU provides quality care for pets that are injured, ill or convalescing.

The heating console is easily removed to allow Pro-Care Veterinary Equipmentthe main cabinet to be submerged for total cleaning and disinfection. Large top door and sliding front door allow easy access. Humidity is maintained by adjustable vents and a water tray, housed in a separate compartment with an electrostatic filtering system. The temperature can be maintained between ambient and 100° F.

There are now Lyon Technologies AICU with hinged top doortwo types of cabinets available. The original lightweight and durable cabinet is manufactured from the finest acrylic and offers excellent visibility from all sides and the top. The newer metal cabinet has aluminum walls and top with acrylic sliding doors. This extra durable model offers less visibility but more privacy for the occupant.

The acrylic model has recently been structurally strengthened by the addition of a metal exoskeleton. Additionally, there are now two options for the top of the unit. The acrylic AICUs can be configured with either a solid top or with a hinged door for easy access to the patient.
