Mouse or rat blood pressure transmitters are used to directly measure arterial pressure, heart rate and animal activity. The catheter is inserted into the left carotid artery and the transmitter probe is positioned subcutaneously on the right flank of the animal under anaesthesia. A freely moving rodent is placed in its animal cage on receiver. Using the acquisition program, the data are sampled in a preferred manner of your choice. The hemodynamic parameters {systolic arterial pressure (SAP), mean arterial pressure (MAP) and heart rate (HR)} may be analyzed from blood pressure waveforms on a beat-by-beat basis in large variety of e.g. pharmacological studies.
