Best-Practices to Achieve Quality Pressure-Volume Loop Data in Rodents

Best-Practices to Achieve Quality Pressure-Volume Loop Data in Rodents

Experts present what is essential for the researcher to be aware of in order to collect valid Pressure-Volume Loop data that can be used with confidence in the ensuing analysis stage of their research.

During this webinar sponsored by TransonicDr. Filip Konecny and Peter Plouf present and offer discussion on best practices for obtaining quality and consistent Pressure-Volume loop data. The presentation is a distillation of more than 10 years of working with the PV Loop research community to develop better results, and insights from Dr. Konecny’s body of knowledge from collecting and publishing PV Loop study data across a wide spectrum of species and research models. 

Key topics in this webinar include…

  • surgical considerations for improved data stability and consistency between animals
  • procedure checklists — essential steps before, during, and post surger
  • how to properly check data integrity at the bench-top
  • understanding conductance and admittance methodologies for deriving volume
