The BP-3 offers three cage slots within a temperature regulated enclosure permitting scientists to measure tail cuff blood pressure in three subjects simultaneously. A tail cuff and pulse sensor are attached to the subject once placed in a restrainer. Deflation rate can be adjusted via analog dial on the front of the machine. The control mode can be set to automatic or manual.
Accompanying the NIBP systems is a software interface for real-time acquisition and review of blood pressure waveforms and derived physiological measurements. Conveniently, data is transferred digitally via direct USB interface, removing the need for a universal data acquisition system.
