* Implants can measure respiratory rate from pleural pressure, diaphragmatic EMG (it is recommended to acquire ECG with dEMG for filtering out ECG contamination during respiratory rate analysis). **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 in two frequencies: 8 MHz (F1) and 18 MHz (F2). Pair housing capable.
##Available with an external thermistor probe if desired.
