[tab: ECG]

To measure ECG  from Rodents the recommended systems are:


ECG signals can be measured with the IX-BIOx.  Measuring 2 channels of ECG, Lead I and Lead II allows LabScribe software to calculate Lead III, aVR, aVF and aVL .  EMG signals can be measured at the same time as the ECG signals.

Application note on using the IX-BIO4-SA for recording 6 lead Rat ECG.
