Respiratory Inductive Plethysmography
Automatic event detection:
- Inspiration end
- Expiration end
- Respiratory cycles
Physiological parameters calculated:
- Respiratory Cycle Time (ms)
- Respiratory rate (bpm)
- Tidal volume (u.a)
- Inspiration – Expiration time (ms)
- Minute Volume (u.a / s)
Examples of respiratory signals
Respiratory data recorded on an animal at rest
The respiratory signal above is recorded during a resting phase from an adult Sprague Dawley male rat, dressed with DECRO jacket. The figure displays from top to bottom the respiratory cycles, instantaneous respiratory rate and the activity level over 20 secondes.
Respiratory data recorded on an animal at rest with sniffing
The respiratory and sniffing signals above are recorded during a resting phase from an adult Sprague Dawley male rat, dressed with the DECRO jacket.
