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.
The best ways to set up participants to record good data for life science research and teaching labs. – Which electrode? – Which lead? – Do I need Ground (GND)? – Best placement? – Best recording system?
We’re turning on the web cam and showing you LIVE how to best prep participants for a variety of life science signals and measurements.
Effects of MDMA on attention to positive social cues for behavioral disorders The psychostimulant drug 3,4-methylenedioxymethamphetamine (MDMA) reportedly produces distinctive feelings of empathy, closeness with others and increased social behavior. Researchers are exploring the potential of this chemical for treatment of psychiatric disorders, such as autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). This […]
