Blood Pressure

Blood Pressure Monitor Non Invasive: NIBP

Non-Invasive Blood Pressure (NIBP) Monitor can monitor systolic, diastolic, mean blood pressure, as well as heart rate with 7% accuracy in one to eight rats or mice. The NIBP consistently tracks the changes of systolic, diastolic, and mean blood pressure measured non-invasively and utilizes two separate cuffs. It takes 16 seconds to complete the blood pressure measurement cycle for an animal. The NIBP is fully automatic and results are presented on the screen and can be printed and/or saved to a file as the numerical values pressure in mmHg, as well as graphical pictures of the signal from the pulsation sensor and a graph of ascending and descending pressure in the occlusion sensor.
