Noninvasive Blood Pressure
The ability to accurately and non-invasively measure the systolic and diastolic blood pressure, in addition to the heart rate and other blood flow parameters in rodents, is of great clinical value to research.
The non-invasive rat and mouse blood pressure measurement methodology consists of utilizing a tail-cuff placed on the tail to occlude the blood flow. Upon deflation, one of several types of non-invasive blood pressure sensors, placed distal to the occlusion cuff, can be used to monitor the blood pressure. Kent Scientific offers three products for noninvasive blood pressure, CODA Surgical Monitor, CODA High Throughput, and CODA Holders and Cuffs.
The CODA mouse and rat tail-cuff system was designed to allow you to precisely measure mouse blood pressure and rat blood pressure. The CODA tail-cuff blood pressure system utilizes Volume Pressure Recording (VPR) sensor technology to measure the mouse or rat tail blood pressure.
Non-invasive blood pressure devices that utilize VPR are a valuable tool in research and will continue to be beneficial in many study protocols. The main advantages are: requires no surgery; significantly less expensive than other mice blood pressure equipment; ability to screen for systolic and diastolic BP changes over time in large numbers of animals; and allows the researcher to obtain accurate and consistent blood pressure measurements over time in long-term studies.
