Blood Pressure Monitor
Audible monitor with variable pitch provides feedback
- Monitors pressure, force, temperature
- Monitors animal arterial or venous blood pressure
- Displays systolic, diastolic or average blood pressure
- SYS-BP1 does not include the BLPR2 transducer
- BLPR2 can be used for the direct arterial and venous pressure measurement in animal blood vessels
- Invasive blood pressure monitoring
BP1 accepts WPI’s BLPR2 blood pressure transducer (right) as well as other blood pressure transducers. An audio monitor provides a signal with variable pitch and amplitude, allowing you to hear changes in blood pressure. Digital LCD display provides average or peak signal values from 0 to 1999 mV. With an optional pressure gauge (not provided — see PM015D/R), you may calibrate the display to read mmHg. Recorder output connector allows direct connection to a pen recorder, oscilloscope or computer via a data acquisition system.
Supplied sterile, BLPR2 is accurate, linear and stable with temperature. May be sterilized cold with Rapicide OPA or a similar bactericide.
BLPR2 is equipped with a 12' cable and connector compatible with WPI’s four-channel signal conditioning unit, TBM4M Transbridge, and the single-channel BP1 blood pressure monitor. The cable has a moisture-resistant locking connector. A continuous, uniform lumen eliminates places for bubbles to form and lodge. The clear fluid path is easy to inspect. Easy to mount — slotted transducer body accepts Velcro strap.
To facilitate setup and operation, a four-way stopcock that allows easy filling, flushing and zeroing of the transducer is included. Typically, the stopcock is located between the transducer and the animal catheter where it can be used to quickly zero, flush or de-bubble the transducer.
