About Small Animal Temperature Monitoring
Resource: The Importance of Maintaining the Proper Body Temperature of Lab Animals During Surgery ›
Sensing, monitoring and maintaining proper body temperature is critical during surgical procedures and also important for acquiring accurate vital sign readings like blood pressure and heart rate. While animals are under anesthesia, core body temperatures drop along with other metabolic functions. It is important to minimize the impact of these swings during procedures, and ensuring proper body temperature is a critical method to achieve this.
Additionally, because of the physiology of different types of rodents, their ability to thermoregulate can be challenged during noninvasive blood pressure measurements and other physiological monitoring methods. Ensuring stabile body temperatures helps researchers collect better data.
Our warming systems, meters and sensors use advanced Far Infrared technology to provide the safest and most efficient means to maintain body temperature.
