Cardiovascular – Biology

Lessons include blood pressure, ECG analysis, heart sounds, and pulse. Students can make single-, three-, six- and 12-lead ECG recordings, familiarizing themselves with Einthovens triangle and mean electrical axis of the frontal plain. Students perform blood pressure measurements using a cuff, with stethoscope, employing Korotkoff sounds to make determinations of systolic/diastolic pressure. Students can also utilize the latest technology for continuous noninvasive BP recordings. Use the bioimpedance cardiac output (CO) module on human and animal subjects to record stroke volume and cardiac output. By measuring continuous BP, simultaneous with flow (cardiac output), students can examine vascular resistance.

General-purpose Electrodes These pre-gelled disposable electrodes have a circular contact and are most suitable for short-term recordings, including surface EMG, ECG, EOG, etc. The small vinyl backing allows close electrode placement where necessary, and a slightly less firm adhesive allows "ouchless" removal. The electrodes incorporate liquid electrolyte gel and moderately-high chloride salt concentration for quick, accurate readings.…

Photoplethysmogram for Pulse Waveform - MP3X/45 The SS4LA photoplethysmogram (PPG) transducer operates with the data acquisition unit to record the blood volume pulse waveform via optical methods. The SS4LA consists of a matched infrared emitter and photo diode detector, which transmits changes in infrared reflectance resulting from varying blood flow. Blood is highly reflective of near infrared light wavelengths, due to the…

Stethoscope, BSL The SS30L was developed to teach students the standard procedure for listening to heart sounds and Korotkoff sounds with a normal stethoscope and at the same time record sound data. A microphone in the stethoscope simultaneously records the sound the student is hearing, and the BSL software will display the soundwave during and after recording.…

Noninvasive Cardiac Output Sensor - MP3X The SS31LA simultaneously measures Impedance Magnitude (Zo; labeled “Z” on the module) and Derivative of Impedance Magnitude (dZ/dt; labeled “DZ” on the module). The SS31LA noninvasively records the parameters associated with Cardiac Output measurements. Measure changes in Cardiac Output under a variety of conditions: laying down, sitting up, standing up, and post-exercise. Use the Kubicek…

New Citations | Analyze Fake News with Media Psychophysiology

Why do we so easily believe Fake News? 68% of Americans find their news through social media, and the prevalence of incomplete or deceptive news stories dubbed “fake news” has wormed its way into the fabric of modern-day media. In an effort to study how social media based news is perceived, this study measured physiological […]

Comparing Diaphragm Tissue Between Healthy and Ill Patients The human diaphragm is one of the primary muscles used in respiration, contracting and expanding to control breathing. To measure how much diaphragms move for critically ill patients (in an Intensive Care Unit) compared to diaphragms in a healthy subject, patients at “Papageorgiou” General Hospital in Thessaloniki, […]
