Journal article : Inductive plethysmography in rats: towards a new standard for longitudinal non-invasive cardiac output monitoring in preclinical studies

Objective: Cardiovascular function assessment is most often mandatory required in preclinical studies in all industrialized countries. The invasiveness and impact of the monitoring devices used on animals have to be lowered as much as possible for scientific as well as ethical reasons. (more…)

Journal article : High-resolution respiratory inductive plethysmography in rats: validation in anesthetized conditions

Respiratory monitoring is often required in experimental physiological and pharmacological studies in rodents. Currently, the mostly used techniques are direct measurement of airflow on intubated animals and whole body plethysmography.
