Methods to Assess Blood Pressure Regulation in Humans and in Animal Models
- 26 May 21
In this ADInstruments sponsored APS workshop, Dr. Noha Shawky, Dr. Lacy Alexander (co-chair), and Dr. Vaughan Macefield address gold standard and innovative methods used in the measurement and analysis of blood pressure regulation in physiology research. This event is chaired by Dr. Nina Stachenfeld and includes a presentation by Dr. Phil Griffiths from ADInstruments on data quality in telemetry studies.
- The use of radiotelemetry to measure blood pressure in freely-moving rats
- The use of skin microdialysis to address mechanisms of blood pressure regulation in humans
- The measurement of sympathetic nerve activity (SNA) using microneurography to examine mechanisms of blood pressure regulation in humans
- The benefits of solid-state sensors in small animal telemetry recording for data quality
Hypertension (high blood pressure) is a primary contributor to cardiovascular disease and stroke, the two leading causes of death in the United States. Therefore understanding how blood pressure is regulated within the body plays a fundamental role in cardiovascular research. The techniques used to understand blood pressure regulation in humans and in animal models have evolved dramatically over the last decade.
This ADInstruments sponsored APS workshop showcases an exciting group of leading experts in this important and foundational aspect of human and animal research. They also provide new data from their research as they describe in detail their innovative methods. The workshop is chaired by Dr. Nina Stachenfeld from Yale School of Medicine, and co-chaired by Dr. Lacy Alexander from The Pennsylvania State University.
In conclusion of the workshop, our own Dr. Phil Griffiths discusses the importance of solid-state sensors for data quality in telemetry research and provides an overview of Kaha Sciences technology from ADInstruments.
