A new plethysmometric apparatus (with automatic electric heating) for running measurement of the arterial pressure in unanesthetized rats by a bloodless method

  • A. Kh. Kogan


A new plethysmometric apparatus with automatic local heating has been designed for conveyor (running) determination of the blood pressure in the caudal artery (ventral) in rats by the bloodless method. The apparatus differs from those already in use by:
  1. 1)

    the presence of a group of plethysmometric measuring instruments, which permits running determination of the blood pressure and reduces the time spent on serial work.

  2. 2)

    certain modifications of the plethysmometers,

  3. 3)

    the method of local warming, with the aid of a bath, of the tail. The temperature in the measuring instruments is 36–37° C and the duration of preliminary heating- 20 to 30 minutes.
