The Physiological Sounds Microphone (TSD108) connects to the DA100B/C General Purpose Transducer Amplifier (see hardware setup). The TSD108 can be used with the TSD120 Noninvasive Blood Pressure Cuff or as a stand-alone device.
Use with the Blood Pressure Cuff to 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.
ICG: Impedance Cardiography/Cardiac Output - Record cardiac output, thoracic impedance changes, or any kind of bioimpedance signal. Use AcqKnowledge for a fully automated ICG analysis and dZ/dt waveform classifier.
Plethysmography - Record PPG, measure BP indirectly, look at appendage size variations, and perform sexual arousal studies using BIOPAC or 3rd-party transducers.
Sleep Studies - Long term recordings with up to 16 channels of data. Record EEG, EOG, EMG, respiration, temp., sound, limb position and more. Filter out EEG frequencies to score sleep stages.
ECG: Cardiology - Connect up to 16 ECG input leads with MP160 system. Use automated analysis features for HRV, RSA, to classify heartbeats, identify arrhythmias, and perform ECG averaging.

New Ventilator Validation System Allows Device Manufacturers to Test Ventilator Pressure and Volume System supports rapid development and testing of hardware for COVID-19 treatment Goleta, California – March 24, 2020 BIOPAC Systems, Inc. announced a new Ventilator Validation System for engineering and device manufacturers to use when designing and testing new and existing ventilators for […]
Space Flight Simulations Prevent Disasters Under psychological and physical stress, astronauts can put their mission and crew in danger. Looking into this issue, researchers created a potentially catastrophic spaceflight simulation using a virtual reality environment and recorded the heart rate of participants. Psychophysiological responses to the potentially disastrous flight simulation were recorded using a BIOPAC MP […]
