Invasive Blood Pressure

Blood pressure is the pressure exerted by blood on the surrounding vessel walls as it is pumped around the cardiovascular system by the heart. The ability to measure continuous arterial and vascular pressure signals directly at the source through invasive blood pressure recordings provides a greater level of data accuracy and sensitivity to support your cardiovascular research.

Ideal for beat-to-beat monitoring of basic, acute and chronic cardiovascular measurements, invasive pressure recordings also allow for assessment of time variance and dynamics of change in data over time. Whether you wish to record and analyze blood pressure in small or large animals, ADInstruments can help you create a solution tailored for your research requirements.

In conjunction with our solutions shown below, any device with an analog output (+/- 10V) can be connected to a PowerLab data acquisition system for synchronization of events in LabChart. So you have even more flexibility and can integrate all your data streams in one place.

All of our hardware recommended for human use is backed by the appropriate safety certification standards. More information on safety standards.

Surgical Instruction Video Series

ADInstruments has been working alongside surgical expert Prof. René Remie, to produce a series of step-by-step instructional videos that demonstrate common Pressure-Volume and Invasive Pressure catheterization procedures.

Each of the 5 videos in the series follows a surgical catheterization procedure from start to finish, and include helpful techniques and tips throughout.

These videos are a unique and valuable resource for researchers performing cardiovascular research in animal models.
