Can I output data?

Yes, you can have one analog output or output all parameters digitally.

Can the MouseSTAT settings be manually set?

Yes. You can choose from either a manual setting or allow the MouseSTAT to automatically set your respiratory rate and tidal volume.

To use the automatic setting, enter the animal's weight and press run.

To manually set-up the ventilator, adjust the settings within the configuration menu, see the User's Guide for additional details.

What material are the warming pads?

The pads are made of water-resistant nylon and are flexible enough to wrap the animal if necessary.

What is the normal ETCO2 range for mice and rats?

The normal ETCO2 range in animals is 30 to 45mmHg or 4.0 to 5.5%. Sensor placement is an important factor in determining mainstream ETCO2. You want to place the sensor on the expiratory line, as close to the animal's airway as possible.
