The Physiological Sounds Microphone (SS17L) connects to the MP3X hardware unit. The SS17L can be used with the SS19L Noninvasive Blood Pressure Cuff or as a stand-alone device.
If you use it with the Blood Pressure Cuff, you can record the Korotkoff sounds for easy determination of systolic and diastolic blood pressure (see Application Note 130 – Blood Pressure Measurement). When used on its own, it can record a variety of acoustical signals, including heart sounds and sounds associated with rubbing or grinding (e.g. Bruxism).
The acoustical transducer element is a Piezo-electric ceramic disk which is bonded to the interior of a metallic circular housing.
The NICO Smart Amplifier is specifically designed to measure thoracic impedance for performing noninvasive cardiac output measurements. The amplifier terminates in two connectors for impedance (Z) and its derivative (dZ), and has a 3 m cable that connects directly to an AMI100D Amplifier Input Module. Use with EL500 series disposable electrodes and LEAD131 for a four-spot […]
NIRS and CNAP—Pairing great tools for great data Cerebral hemoglobin concentration (blood mass in the brain) is frequently measured in the prefrontal cortex, and systemic arterial blood pressure is known to be a variable factor based on the hemoglobin concentration. A leg pressure cuff was used to constrict and release blood flow to create a […]
BIOPAC’s just released Introductory ECG Guide addresses fundamental to advanced concerns to optimize electrocardiography data recording and analysis. Topics include: ECG Complex; Electrical and Mechanical Sequence of a Heartbeat; Systole and Diastole; Configurations for Lead I, Lead II, Lead III, 6-lead ECG, 12-lead ECG, precordial leads; Ventricular Late Potentials (VLPs); ECG Measurement Tools; Automated Analysis Routines […]
