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.
Combining 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.
