To extract Cardiac Output values from impedance cardiography data if subject height/weight was not recorded, set the stroke volume method to Kubicek.
Subject height and weight are not needed for the Kubicek/Rho method, but a value must be entered for height and weight for the analysis to run.
You can easily confirm that the height and weight values are not used in the analysis: take a small section of data and run the analysis twice using drastically different values for height and weight for the two different runs; you will see that the results are identical because the results do not depend on those values.
Height and weight values must be entered for Kubicek/Rho analysis when running AcqKnowledge 4.4.1 or below; the dialog box will be modified in future releases to use different prompts for different stroke volume method preferences.
fNIR Imaging Systems are stand-alone functional brain imaging solutions for continuous NIR spectroscopy (NIRS). They provide an in-lab cognitive function assessment and eliminate a great many of the drawbacks of a functional MRI. fNIR optical imaging technology measures neural activity and hemodynamic response in the prefrontal cortex. Subjects wear an fNIR sensor (IR light sources […]
Alan Macy Answers Proust Questionnaire BIOPAC co-founder and R&D Director, Alan Macy, was interviewed recently by Roger Durling for the Santa Barbara Independent. The article, “The S.B. Questionnaire: Alan Macy,” provided a background excerpt of the Santa Barbara entrepreneurs’ past as well as his answers to the Proust Questionnaire. The biomedical technology developed at BIOPAC reflects an ambitious […]
Physiological researchers have been studying the lower body through examining impacts of training, movement instruction, and innovative research measurements on an individual’s well being. The following articles represent recent developments in physiological research, moving our understanding of lower limbs and the body as a whole forward, one step at a time. The Importance of Form Improper […]
