Learn about integrating NIBP and physiological data

Experts discussed the fundamentals of real-time, beat-to-beat noninvasive blood pressure (NIBP) monitoring and present new research capabilities enabled through the integration of NIBP technology and physiological recording systems.

BIOPAC noninvasive blood pressure webinarCombining blood pressure data with other physiological signals offers detailed insights into—and gives a complete picture of—human subjects’ physiological responses in a variety of research applications, such as psychophysiology, exercise physiology, biomedical engineering and consumer neuroscience. However, traditional methods of obtaining blood pressure data provide a myriad of challenges, including invasive acquisition methods, lack of continuous measurement and complex set-up and calibration requirements. Additionally, combining traditional blood pressure measurements with other physiological data adds another level of complexity, often requiring the use of multiple systems, which can lead to challenges when attempting to make measurements simultaneously and ensure that data is properly synchronized. Therefore, the goal of this webinar was to present specific hardware and software requirements and best practices for successful integration of noninvasive blood pressure data with physiological signals.

In this exclusive webinar, hosted by Inside Scientific and sponsored by BIOPAC Systems and CNSystems, Frazer Findlay and Walter Habenbacher discussed study design and demonstrate correct equipment set up and operation when recording NIBP with additional physiological signals. Specifically, Mr. Habenbacher explained the application of the NIBP100D-HD to noninvasively measure continuous blood pressure. He demonstrated setup and measurement and show how scientific findings can be integrated into your research with advanced hemodynamic monitoring.

Following, Mr. Findlay demonstrated how to interface the NIBP100D Continuous Noninvasive Blood
Pressure Monitor with the BIOPAC MP160 Data Acquisition and Analysis System and simultaneously recorded measurements of NIBP, ECG and respiration.  In addition, Mr. Findlay discussed important data analysis processes such as computing cardiac output and stroke volume and demonstrate how scientists can use “Focus Areas” feature in AcqKnowledge Software to simplify their data review.

You can learn more about NIBP and NIBP with hemodynamics systems.

Key topics covered during this webinar included:

  • Benefits of advanced hemodynamic monitoring for research
  • Setup & measurement of the NIBP100D
  • Getting reproducable data
  • Interfacing equipment and optimizing multiple measurements from a single subject
  • Automatic blood pressure analysis
  • Using “Focus Areas” feature in AcqKnowledge Software
