The manual Rodent Non-Invasive Blood Pressure System, uses the tail cuff method to measure Blood pressure in rodents. This is similar to to way blood pressure is measured in humans. Instead of using a human arm we will be using the tail of the rodent.
The cuff and sensor assembly is placed over the tail of the rodent close to the base. The pulse is monitored. The cuff is inflated manually until the pulse signal is blocked. The cuff pressure is slowly reduced. and the pulse signal monitored as the cuff pressure reduces.
