Technical Notes

DSI periodically provides Tech Notes, a publication for customers that covers a variety of topics to assist researchers on the care and use of DSI transmitters. Researchers may read about transmitter storage, resterilization of transmitters, placement of ECG leads, guidelines for re-gelling pressure sensing catheters and much more.
