Blood Pressure Monitor: BP-2

  • bp-2
  • The Columbus Instruments BP-2 Blood Pressure Computer is intended for accurate measurements of blood pressure in a variety of animals, from horses to mice, utilizing intravenous or arterial catheters and a blood pressure transducer. It operates as a stand-alone monitor with digital presentation of Systolic, Diastolic pressures and Heart Rate or Mean pressure.

    Measurements of Systolic, Diastolic pressures and Heart Rate are continuously displayed and updated with every heart beat. Mean Pressure is computed over 10 heart beats. Heart rate is derived from the blood pressure by the detection of crossings of the instantaneous pressure with Mean Pressure. The BP-2 employs Columbus Instruments Blood Pressure Transducers or any 350 ohm bridge type transducer equipped with an 'Electronics for Medicine' connector. The blood pressure waveform is available as a rear panel output and an analog output proportional to heart rate is available as an extra cost option.
