The NIBP100D Noninvasive Blood Pressure System automatically records noninvasive blood pressure. The NIBP100D system attaches to the fingers of a human subject to output a continuous noninvasive arterial pressure (CNAP) signal. The system will work for short and long-term studies that demand several hours of monitoring. Combine the blood pressure signal with a variety of […]
Use the powerful Epoch Analysis data reduction function to reduce large (24-hour) data files to manageable sizes. Analyze both primary signals (such as arterial blood pressure) and derived data (such as Systolic BP). Extract basic measurements from fixed width segments of data. Set “epoch” width to any time interval and key off of scored event […]
During certain activities, elements of the autonomic nervous system can be tested by simultaneously measuring beat-by-beat blood pressure, ECG and end-tidal CO2. These activities include the tilt table test, deep breathing test and the Valsalva maneuver. For example, upright position angles of greater than 30 degrees (on the tilt table) usually activate the sinoaortic baroreflex, […]
Baroreflex Sensitivity (BRS) measures the relationship between blood pressure and heart rate. The body regulates blood pressure to ensure proper blood flow to organs underneath different conditions, e.g. supine to standing. Baroreflex sensitivity is a measure of how quickly the blood pressure system can compensate for changes in conditions. Variations in baroreflex sensitivity are useful as a comparative […]
Combine blood pressure data (via NIBP100D) with cardiac output data (via NICO100C) to indicate systemic vascular resistance on a beat-by-beat basis. Use the Equation Generator to determine vascular resistance as blood pressure divided by blood flow. For blood pressure measurements, AcqKnowledge can provide mathematically precise mean blood pressure via the arithmetic mean calculator from the […]
Nervous system functions such as sudomotor axon reflex, vasomotor, cardiac-vagal and adrenergic functions can be indicated with measurements such as beat-by-beat blood pressure, electrodermal response, skin temperature, ECG and respiration.
Blood pressure varies based on the subject’s physical orientation in a gravitational field. The NIBP100D can be attached to a subject placed on a tilt table. Use TSD109 accelerometers to determine the exact tilt in all three spatial dimensions and record the X, Y, and Z accelerometer signals simultaneously with the varying blood pressure signal.
AcqKnowledge will extract beat-by-beat systolic, diastolic and mean blood pressure data from the raw blood pressure waveform. Simultaneously, data can be collected from ECG, EOG, EMG, RSP, EDA (GSR) and SKT amplifiers. The Equation Generator can be used to algorithmically combine various channels to generate an indicator when the subject manifests a specific physiological state. Examine the […]
