Adding continuous, beat-by-beat, noninvasive Blood Pressure (BP) to physiology experiments gives researchers better cardiovascular insights yet many researchers avoid collecting blood pressure signals because of its complexity.
But what if you could add BP without adding the complexity?
Frazer Findlay of BIOPAC Systems and Walter Habenbacher of CNSystems will walk you through how to successfully integrate noninvasive blood pressure and other hemodynamic data with other physiological signals. They will explain the benefits of adding NIBP to experiments and they will do a live demo and show you how to set up the hardware and software.
What will you learn:
Benefits of advanced hemodynamic monitoring for research
Correct equipment set up and operation
How to get reproducible data
Interfacing equipment and optimizing multiple measurements
Walter Habenbacher is CNSystems’ Head of International Sales and Marketing. Following a Master’s Degree in Biomedical/Medical Engineering, Walter originally joined CNSystems—an Austrian medical technology company that has pioneered noninvasive hemodynamic monitoring—in 1999 as a Software engineer working with the R&D team to design the Task Force Monitor. Over his 19+ year career with CNSystems, the company has expanded to reach worldwide export markets with its CNAP technology. He works closely with global Key Opinion Leaders and users to develop and apply the technology for a wide range applications.
Frazer Findlay is CEO of BIOPAC and has more than 25 years’ experience in life science data acquisition and analysis. Frazer is a well-regarded expert in the physiology monitoring industry and has facilitated workshops in the U.S., Europe, and Asia. He is familiar with a variety of software, equipment, and laboratory protocols for a wide array of signals and measurements. Frazer joined BIOPAC in 1996 when he moved from the UK to Santa Barbara as Domestic Sales Manager. He became CEO in 2008 and has continued to develop and grow the business while also working with physiology measurement and biometric companies to improve the physiology monitoring industry.
The NICO Smart Amplifier is specifically designed to measure thoracic impedance for performing noninvasive cardiac output measurements. The amplifier terminates in two connectors for impedance (Z) and its derivative (dZ), and has a 3 m cable that connects directly to an AMI100D Amplifier Input Module. Use with EL500 series disposable electrodes and LEAD131 for a four-spot […]
NIRS and CNAP—Pairing great tools for great data Cerebral hemoglobin concentration (blood mass in the brain) is frequently measured in the prefrontal cortex, and systemic arterial blood pressure is known to be a variable factor based on the hemoglobin concentration. A leg pressure cuff was used to constrict and release blood flow to create a […]
