ASR 2019 Accepted Abstract

Proper Implantation Technique is Critical for Quality Signals in Longitudinal Studies using Telemetry Devices.




Large Animal Implants 

  • easyTEL implantable system transmits physiological data from conscious freely moving laboratory animals.
  • Physiological measurements are captured by a transmitter surgically implanted and wirelessly transmitted to a receiver within 3 to 5 meters distance.
  • Ability to group house up to 32 subjects in one area.


ECG Lead and Blood Pressure Catheter Implantation on dogs

The telemeter was placed subcutaneously in the right abdomen. Incisions were made at the 7th intercostal space left thorax, and the thoracic inlet on right thorax for ECG leads and right femoral area for blood pressure catheter placement. ECG leads were tacked to muscle bed while pressure catheter was passed into right femoral artery and secured.
