Blood Pressure Monitor Direct
For use with catheterized or cannulated vessels
Digital display of systolic, diastolic, and mean pressure, plus heart rate
These highly accurate monitors are used with implanted catheters and a transducer to monitor blood pressure directly. They can be used to present a digital display of blood pressure (mean, diastolic, or systolic) or heart rate; or as a front end signal conditioner for data acquisition.
Any full or half bridge pressure transducer can be used as the input. Our 56360 Pressure Transducer, listed below, is suitable. A four-position selector switch allows the researcher to choose which of the derived values (mean pressure, diastolic pressure, systolic pressure, or heart rate) is to be displayed.
A simple pressure calibration procedure is provided to calibrate the monitor for any full or half bridge pressure transducer.
An automatic heart-rate tracking circuit is included, there is no requirement for the researcher to set or reset thresholds.
Five analog outputs (BNC connectors) are provided: one each for mean, diastolic and systolic blood pressure, one for heart rate and one for the pulse wave form. Single and dual channel models. The dual channel model can be rack mounted.
