* Sensor life warranted for 28 days from time of implantation.  Sensor frequently functions 6-8 weeks.
#Implants can derive respiratory rate from pleural pressure, or blood pressure.

 Sympathetic Nerve Activity

W = weight, V = volume, P = pressure, R = respiratory rate, T = temperature, A= activity

*Available in two frequencies: 455 kHz (F0) and 18 MHz (F2). Pair housing capable.
** Sensor often functions for 6-8 weeks; warranty is 4 weeks.
***Available with an external thermistor probe if desired.
**** Available in two frequencies: 8 MHz (F1) and 18 MHz (F2). Pair housing capable.
#Implants can derive respiratory rate from pleural pressure, or blood pressure or diaphragmatic EMG.


DSI offers multiple telemetry implants options for large animals such as canines, non-human primates, swine, sheep, and similar sized animals that measure a variety of parameters.

W = weight, V = volume, P = pressure, R= respiration, T = temperature, A = activity

#D70-PCTR can measure respiratory rate and volume via impedance; other implants can measure
respiratory rate from pleural pressure, blood pressure or diaphragmatic EMG.
**Indicated D70 series implants are not available for sale in North America and Europe




Battery life listed is the minimum requirement  for continuous data transmission that falls under DSI's extensive 
warranty.  Battery may last longer but is not guaranteed. Weight and volume do not include leads or catheters.
