Due to the complexity of heart failure there are multiple ways to measure or characterize the progression of the disease. This include echocardiography, measurement of blood pressure, central venous pressure pulmonary artery pressure, left and right ventricular pressures and measuring cardiac dimensions.
Animal models used to study heart failure include mice, rats, rabbits and dogs. Models are generated by several means, including, genetic selection, induced hypertension and electrical pacing of the heart.
DSI has solutions for capturing and analyzing bioelectrical and pressure measurements, plus hardwired solutions capable of combining telemetry with other systems such as cardiac dimension measurements. Cardiovascular and respiratory data can be collected and analyzed with the Ponemah Software Platform.
