Trauma-related ICP report on MPMS100A

The US national Naval Medical Research Center in Silver Springs, MD has published a report describing a method and setup for investigating the effects of blast waves (explosions) on the brain and central nervous system. The report compares the MPMS100A Micro Pressure System (Samba*) with high-sampling PCB sensors and justifies the use of the MPMS100A Micro Pressure System for animal experiments.

See “Sensors to Assess Pressure-Mediated Effects on Blast-Induced Traumatic Brain Injury“. Mikulas Chavko. March 2009.

* Samba products are not available as of Nov. 2012 – contact a BIOPAC rep to discuss other solutions for micro pressure measurement.

ECG Electrocardiogram Amplifier for MRI

The ECG100C-MRI Electrocardiogram Amplifier records electrical activity generated by the heart and will reliably record ECG from humans, animals and isolated organ preparations. The amplifier output can be switched between normal ECG output and R-wave detection. The R-wave mode outputs a smoothed pulse with the occurrence of each R-wave. The exact timing of the R-wave […]
