Pulse Oximetry

Pulse Oximetry

Pulse oximetry is a non-invasive and painless test which measures oxygen saturation level.
It can rapidly detect even small changes in how efficiently oxygen is being carried to the extremities furthest from the heart, including the legs and the arms.


Benefits Of The MouseOx Plus Small Animal Pulse Oximeter

  • Arterial Saturation – The amount of oxygen bound to haemoglobin in mice, rats, and other small animals.
  • Heart Rate – Able to measure small animals with heart rates of 90 – 900 bpm.
  • Breath Rate – Provides breathing rate using the same sensor
  • Pulse Distension – Change in arteries at the Sensor site due to a heart beat
  • Breath Distension – Change in arteries at the sensor site sue to breathing
  • Temperature – Monitor subject core body temperature using the temperature probe
  • Activity – Monitoring gross motion of a subject over a period of time

 

Heart Rates Of 90 – 900 BPM

The MouseOx® Plus can be used on mice, rats and other small animals with a pulse rate of 90 – 900 bpm

Noninvasively Measure Up To 7 Parameters

Measure up to 7 physiological parameters without invasive surgical procedures

Anesthetized & Conscious Subjects

Special sensors and software modules allow you to monitor both anesthetized & conscious subjects.

Non-Magnetic MRI Compatible

Monitor your subject’s health during MRI imaging using the Non-Magnetic MRI Sensor

Monitor Up To 16 Individuals

Utilizing a Multiplexer, you can sequentially monitor up to 16 individuals one-at-a-time, using one MouseOx® Plus.

Analogue Output Of Pulse Waveform

Outputs the raw pulse waveform for input into other data acquisition systems

MouseOx has a wide range of accessories available to enhance your ability to make measurements in many different environments and conditions.

MouseOx Plus Sensors

Mouse Thigh Sensor

The Mouse Thigh Sensor is used with the  MouseOx Plus for obtaining vital sign measurements from an anesthetized mice by providing a strong signal from femoral artery.

Mouse Paw Sensor

The Mouse Paw Sensor is used for obtaining vital sign measurements from the paw of anesthetized mice. The sensor can be used to obtain measurements from a mouse tail.

Rat Foot Sensor

The Rat Foot Sensor is used with the MouseOx Plus for obtaining vital sign measurements from an anesthetized rat’s foot.

Throat Sensor

The Throat Sensor is used with the MouseOx Plus for obtaining vital sign measurements from an anesthetized animal in the supine position by obtaining a strong signal from the carotid arteries.

 

Collar Sensor

The Collar Sensor is used with the MouseOx Plus for obtaining vital sign measurements from a Concious or Anesthetized animal in the prone position by obtaining a strong signal from the carotid arteries.

Non-Magnetic MRI Compatible Sensor

The Non-Magnetic MRI Compatible Sensor is for anesthetized subjects and can be used in small, large and closed bore MRI environments up to 19T.  The MRI Compatible Sensor can also be used in conjunction with MouseOx Plus Temperature Sensor.

Rectal Temperature Sensor

The MouseOx Plus can measure Mouse or Rat core body temperature with the addition of the Rectal Temperature Sensor and included Temperature Software.
