Pressure Arteriography or Wire Myography? How to choose for your model.

Introduction The study of vascular function is central to understanding almost every aspect of physiology, pathophysiology and pharmacology since it is the vasculature that perfuses and maintains the entire body.  Diseases such as hypertension, diabetes and arteriosclerosis, and even normal processes such as aging, directly impact vascular structure and function, so it is of

(December 2, 2020) WEBINAR: Tips and Tricks for Successful Rat Telemetry Blood Pressure Recordings

Chronic blood pressure recordings from the abdominal aorta are commonplace in cardiovascular physiology, however the surgical implantation of catheters can be challenging. This webinar provided an overview of the surgical protocol that we recommend when implanting Kaha Sciences blood pressure telemeters. We also discussed some simple strategies to avoid common problems and the

(November 18, 2020) WEBINAR: Targeting the Hallmarks of Aging to Reverse Age-related Cardiac Dysfunction in Preclinical Mouse Models

Aging sharply increases the risk of cardiovascular disease, the leading cause of death in the United States. Even in individuals without overt cardiovascular disease, aging is associated with increased prevalence of cardiac hypertrophy, impaired diastolic function and reduced myocardial performance. Diastolic dysfunction is a common contributor to heart failure with preserved ejection fraction (HFpEF),

(November 11, 2020) WEBINAR: Introduction to Measurement of Tissue Oxygen in Rats Via Telemetry

Carbon paste electrodes connected to a potentiostat have been shown to provide stable measurement of tissue oxygen levels in vivo. Now wireless telemetry from Kaha Sciences allows the chronic long-term measurement of tissue oxygen in rats living in their home cages.  This webinar discussed how tissue oxygen measurements are made using carbon paste electrodes, how

Diabetes is a devastating disease affecting millions worldwide. Vascular complications are a major cause of morbidity and mortality in the diabetic population. Although much effort has been placed in examining mechanisms of endothelial dysfunction in diabetes, vascular smooth muscle complications are understudied. The L-type Ca2+ channel CaV1.2 plays key roles in vascular smooth muscle
