Pulse and Plethysmography

Pulse and Plethysmography

Using PowerLab you can measure blood volume changes and blood oxygen saturation non-invasively in animals with the addition of our oximeters, plethysmographs, or tonometers.

With specific sensor designs, you can measure from a small to large animals in various locations, depending on your study’s needs.
