SMALL ANIMAL PHYSIOLOGICAL MONITORING SYSTEM

For animal monitoring during surgery

Description

The Small Animal Physiological Monitoring System is an instrument integrating multiple physiology parameters on one single small platform. The objective behind this instrument is to provide superior monitoring results, while making surgery and other manipulations on small animals easier.

The platform integrates monitoring of the rectal temperature, electrocardiogram (ECG), respiration, oxygen saturation (SpO2), blood pressure and exhaled CO2 (EtCO2). It also includes a controlled heating surface to maintain the animal’s body temperature at the desired level.

Features & Benefits

  • Demands less installation time at the beginning of procedures.
  • Reduces the required space and the number of wires around the animal: (i) A single data/power cable connects to a small wireless communication moduleand (ii)All data is transferred to an Android tablet by Bluetooth for display and saving.
  • Real-time display provides numeric values as well as waveforms that can be customized by the user: Multiple signals can be displayed on each of the three graphs.
  • Available with a stereotaxic adaptor option, which includes ear bars, a tooth bar and either a nose bar or an anesthesia mask: Stereotaxic device is fixed to the platform, but can easily be removed depending upon the application.
  • Recorded data can easily be transferred to any computer for analysis: Scripts and utilities provided to convert data in LabChart or CSV format and to display signals in Excel and Matlab
