Continuous recording of blood pressure of animals in the waking state
- 13 Downloads
A method is described for recording blood pressure in waking cats and dogs. A tube from a manometer, three-fourths of the diameter of the carotid artery, was introduced through the latter into the aorta to the required distance.
The membrane of the manometer is best made of glass, and should be sufficiently rigid. The tube is filled with saline containing 50 I. U. of heparin per ml, and is wound once or twice around the neck and fixed in position. In dogs the tube is best taken to a collar on which a condenser manometer connected to a miniature short-wave transmitter is fastened. In cats, connection to the manometer is made through a long tube.
