There are several ways to assess blood pressure in rodent models.  Non-invasive tail cuff systems enable repeated measurements over the course of a longitudinal study, while acute measures may be obtained with highly accurate vascular and ventricular pressure catheters. For studies that require chronic pressure monitoring, telemetry implants offer long-term solutions.

Rodent Surgical Monitor Pressure Option

Pressure Catheters

For acute studies, pressure catheters can rapidly detect changes in vascular or ventricular pressure with high precision.  Coupling pressure catheters to a surgical monitor (RSM+) enables visualization of several cardiovascular parameters simultaneously to ensure accurate surgical procedures.
