Breakthrough in blood pressure measurement

Sep 29, 2015

Volume-pressure sensor technology for accurate nibp measurements!

 

The CODA Monitor system from emka TECHNOLOGIES is an integrated system that quickly performs nibp measurements non-invasively from the tail cuff of an animal without operator intervention.

 

Six parameters are measured simultaneously: systolic blood pressure, diastolic blood pressure, mean blood pressure, heart rate, tail blood flow and tail blood volume. Notably, the VPR sensor technology measures the actual diastolic blood pressure (other tail-cuff technologies use a light sensor to determine the diastolic blood pressure).

 

The CODA Monitor device features:

  • - an LCD screen showing real-time measured parameters 
  • - a pump to rapidly and automatically coordinate the occlusion cuff inflation and deflation cycles with the blood pressure signal acquisition 
  • - proprietary signal processing electronics 
  • - integrated data acquisition software

 

In the setup, the CODA Monitor is simply connected to a tail-cuff and VPR sensor. It can therefore be used in a stand-alone manner (without a computer).

 

Nevertheless, as the CODA Monitor stores acquired data in the memory, it remains possible to transfer data to a computer with dedicated software installed (available separately). Subsequently, the data can be archived in a database  and exported to a spreadsheet program.
