JET Blood Pressure

The JET Blood Pressure Add-On

Expand on your Jacketed External Telemetry (JET™) capabilities with the JET BP Add-On and acquire accurate, continuous blood pressure data from a minimally invasive implant. No other system provides comparable accuracy or power for hemodynamics studies.

The JET Blood Pressure Add-On consists of a remote antenna receiver and electronics module that are interfaced directly to the JET device. Together these components receive a signal from a DSI pressure-only implant. The implant and receiver antenna should be placed as close as possible for optimal performance.

Implant

The DSI pressure-only implant is typically placed in the femoral or carotid artery to enable a direct blood pressure measurement via a simple, fast, and minimally invasive surgical procedure with a rapid recovery. Based on experience with canines and primates, the duration is 10 – 15 minutes from first incision to final suture. Implant sites are typically located within the optimal distance of a JET BP antenna that is housed inside a protective jacket. Accurate, continuous blood pressure data allows for determination of Systolic, Diastolic, and Mean pressures, along with Heart Rate and +/-dP/dt on a beat-to-beat basis.

Histopathology

Due to the small size and simple surgery, histopathology concerns can be successfully mitigated. No significant histopathology was observed following implantation of up to 15 weeks.
