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.
Basic principles of physiological data collection covers fundamentals of data collection and equipment configuration equipment to help you refine experiment protocols and avoid costly missteps. Frazer Findlay, CEO of BIOPAC, discusses common mistakes with physiology recording and shares his secrets for collecting great data. Topics include: How to prep a subject and where to place electrodes; Which type of electrodes work for different body signals; Analog to Digital Conversion; Sample rates (correct vs. incorrect); Filtering; and Scaling and calibration.Watch On Demand Now!
