Noninvasive Blood Pressure Monitoring Cuff Sensors

BIOPAC offers real-time, continuous, noninvasive blood pressure Systems for human and animal blood pressure.

Noninvasive Blood Pressure Measurement via Finger Cuff Sensor

  • NIBP100D parameters:  BP, sBP, dBP, mBP, and PR
  • NIBP100D-HD parameters: BP, sBP, dBP, mBP, and PR plus hemodynamic parameters PPV, SVV, CO, CI, SV,SI, SVR, and SVRI

Systems provide a continuous, beat-to-beat, blood pressure signal recorded from the fingers of a subject–uses a double finger cuff that is easy to place on the hand. The cuffs (included with system) come in three sizes. The system outputs a continuous blood pressure waveform that is similar to a direct arterial pressure waveform.

Noninvasive Blood Pressure Measurement via Tail Cuff Sensor

  • NIBP250 Touchscreen LCD controls & displays data for local analysis and storage of systolic, diastolic, and mean BP values. Use as a stand-alone system or interface to BIOPAC or third-party A/D hardware
  • NIBP200 Interface to BIOPAC or third-party A/D hardware and computer

Both systems provide two analog outputs – pressure and pulse. Systems incorporate a built-in pump that automatically inflates the blood pressure cuff to occlude the vessel in the tail of a rat or small animal. Once the pump reaches the inflation point it slowly deflates the cuff, providing a linear drop in pressure. A single control runs both the inflation and deflation cycles, making the system very user-friendly. Systems include one tail cuff sensor  (9.5 mm , 11 mm, or 13 mm), one restrainer (mouse, small, medium, or large), and interface cables. Optional heater and MRI sensors also available. 

Noninvasive Blood Pressure for MRI

Wireless and noninvasive physiological monitoring system

  • Track blood pressure using Pulse-Decomposition Analysis (PDA) technology
  • The system provides relative, real-time, beat-to-beat pressure measurement values during magnetic resonance imaging

The NIBP-MRI operates passively at a low constant coupling pressure of 40 mmHg. After being provided a calibrated blood pressure reading, the device tracks blood pressure by analyzing the timing and amplitudes of the primary left ventricular ejection pulse as well as the arterial pulse reflections, at the upper arm. The system runs on a computer using Windows OS and sends analog signals back to a BIOPAC MP Device or third-party A/D converter. Add NIBP-MRI-SPLINT to hold arm in optimal position.

When used with the Biopac Student Lab hardware, software, and curriculum these noninvasive blood pressure monitoring systems are part of a complete life science learning system.
