A webinar on novel application of telemetry measurements in rat models of cardiovascular, integrative physiology and neurophysiological research.
This webinar offers insight into unique applications of Millar implantable telemetry, including the measurement of intra-cranial pressure (ICP), concurrent sympathetic nerve activity (SNA) and arterial pressure recordings, and tissue oxygen. Experts share experimental methods and highlight distinctive capabilities of this technology that have helped each of them uncover scientific findings in the areas of renal sympathetic nerve activity (RSNA) and cerebral perfusion in rats, respectively.
Dr. Fiona McBryde discusses her recent experience working with rats where she has successfully instrumented subjects with two telemeters, permitting continuous recording of arterial blood pressure, intracranial pressure and brain oxygenation. Importantly, she shares tips and prescribed best-practices for both single and dual telemeter implantation, and discusses experimental design for more complex multi-parameter research studies.
Professor Jacqueline Phillips discusses highlights from her recent publication, “Direct conscious telemetry recordings demonstrate increased renal sympathetic nerve activity (RSNA) in rats with chronic kidney disease”, specifically focusing on HOW scientists can successfully acquire continuous RSNA data and should approach data analysis.
