Collect respiratory parameters in anesthetized animals

  • Collect invasive resistance, dynamic compliance, and elastance data
  • Evaluate spontaneously breathing, ventilated, aerosol challenged, and IV challenged animals
    including mice, rats, and guinea pigs 
  • Perform longer data collections with a heated bed
  • Reduce the risk of human error with automated diagnostics and calibration
