DSI offers several technologies to record ECG or blood pressure signals including implantable telemetry, external telemetry and hardwired options.
DSI’s PhysioTelTM, PhysioTelTM HD and PhysioTelTM Digital implants are designed for monitoring and collecting data from conscious, freely moving animals. Implants are offered in different sizes to support a variety of animal species including mice, rats, dogs and non-human primates. Several telemetry models are capable of monitoring ECG and blood pressure.
Telemetry Systems include
Small Animal Telemetry System
Large Animal Telemetry System
Jacketed External Telemetry (JET)
ECG and blood pressure signals are collected from conscious, freely moving animals wearing a jacket which contains and protects a small JET device capable of monitoring cardiovascular data and transmitting data to an acquisition and analysis computer system.
ECG is collected via the placement of electrodes on the exterior of the animal which are connected to the JET Device.
Blood pressure is collected via the placement of a Minimally Invasive Blood Pressure (MIBP) implant in an artery of the animal. This implant then transmits to a nearby antenna in the animal’s jacket, which is connected to the JET Device.
JET Systems include:
Short durations of data are collected from chemically or physically restrained animals which are connected to external devices capable of monitoring ECG and recording directly into an acquisition and analysis computer system. DSI offers two hardwired ECG options, the Multi-lead ECG Pod and Isolated/Defibrillation Protected ECG and General Purpose Probes.
Multi-Lead ECG Pod Systems include:
Isolated/Defibrillation Protected ECG and General Purpose Probes Systems include:
