"Systola" is intended for non-invasive measurement of systolic and diastolic pressure from the tail of rodents of small and medium sizes: rats and mice.
The built-in pomp automatically forces pressure in a tail-cuff until the termination of pulsations of a bloodstream, then, slowly reducing pressure, measures systolic and diastolic pressure on a basis of indications of the infrared sensor of the pulse which is put on a tail of an animal after a cuff.
ATTENTION! It is obligatory to heat the animal for noninvasive measurement of blood pressure in rats and mice. It allows to provide blood circulation in the tail in the necessary volume and to stabilize a bloodstream. It is obligatory to preheat the animal to a temperature of 28-32 C° for 10-15 minutes. Such mode of heating has to be supported during all procedure of measurement of pressure. For heating it is offered to use the heating platform Phlogiston or other suitable system of heating of small animals.
