ICG (thorax)

Cardiac Output amplifier

To record ICG (thorax) use the following BIOPAC hardware:

Standard setup:

  1. Noninvasive Cardiac Output Amplifier
    • NICO100D Smart Amplifier
      measures thoracic impedance for performing noninvasive cardiac output measurements
  2. Lead Sets
    • LEAD131 for tetrapolar electrode configurations
      provides 4 x 50 cm clip leads: White I+, Red Vin+, Green Vin, Black I
    • LEAD132 for spot electrode configurations
      provides 8 x 64 cm clip leads (4 x 25 cm wires each split to 2 x 36 cm leads):
      2 x White I+, 2 x Red Vin+, 2 x Green Vin, 2 x Black I
  3. Electrodes
    • EL516 Bioimpedance Strip Electrodes: sticky hydrogel, carbon film backed, standard snap contact
    • EL500 Paired Electrodes: Fixed-spacing, pre-gelled peel-and-stick foam-backed sheet with two snap contacts

For use in MRI environment:

  1. MR-Compatible Noninvasive Cardiac Output Amplifier
    • NICO100C-MRI Impedance Cardiography (ICG) Noninvasive Cardiac Output Module for Magnetic Resonance Imaging
  2. Lead Set
    • MECMRI-NICO filtered cable set
  3. Electrodes
    • EL526 Carbon fiber, foam-backed, pre-gelled strip electrodes with TP leads
      16.5 cm x 1.3 cm (6.5″ x 0.5″) sheet with 4 x 15 cm lead cables terminated in 1.5 mm Touch Proof sockets
