Cardiac Output Pods are used with high performance T-type thermocouples for the determination of cardiac output in small animals (mice, rats, guinea pigs or rabbits) using the thermodilution technique. Cardiac Output Pods have a 'delta' temperature mode to allow a signal offset to be applied and therefore allow small temperature variations to be monitored accurately. This unit is for use in the determination of cardiac output in animals ONLY.
The Cardiac Output Pod can be purchased with or without the T-Type Ultra Fast Thermocouple Probe. We recommend this probe as it has a fast response time of 0.005 seconds, which is ideal for the thermodilution method. However, any T-type thermocouple can be used with the Cardiac Output Pod.
