This application note is concerned with the relationship between fMRI imaging sequences and associated physiological measurements, when subjects are monitored in the fMRI. In particular, this note addresses the impact that imaging sequence types have upon simultaneously recorded electrocardiography (ECG) and impedance cardiography (ICG) subject measurements.
Blood Oxygen Level Dependent Effect (BOLD) Imaging types—Echo Planar Imaging (EPI), Multiband (MB) Excitation, and Multiplexed-EPI (M-EPI) Sequencing—are explained, and Axial, Coronal, and Sagittal slices are reviewed.
The Ventilator Validation Kit supports new prototype development, existing design validation for production testing, mobile field testing and verification, and other uses where accurate pressure and flow measurements are critical. The Ventilator Validation Kit provides ventilator manufacturers and prototype developers with a complete solution for validating new medical/hospital-grade ventilator products intended for human use. The VVK100-SYS includes […]
MIT and Harvard researchers developed a new technique to expand ventilator capacity Individualized System for Augmenting Ventilator Efficacy (iSAVE): A Rapidly deployable system to expand ventilator capacity “The iSAVE is a rapidly deployable solution in response to the urgent shortage of mechanical ventilators for respiratory support during the COVID-19 pandemic. In contrast to previously described […]
