Single-Chamber Plethysmograph

Single-Chamber Plethysmograph

Acute respiratory measurement can take place with an intubated animal placed in a Type 853 plethysmograph box. This reduces the dead space in the respiratory path. The pneumotachometer is not needed and is replaced by the screens in the plethysmograph box.

  • Investigate resistance and compliance without surgical intervention just by intubating
  • Low dead space volume (no pneumotach in-line with the trachea)
  • Possibility of continuous gas anesthesia and aerosol application
  • Applications
    - Toxicology
    - Environmental studies
    - Long term drug effects

The box can be equipped with anesthesia equipment to allow Halothane or Eflurane anesthesia during the measurement. This permits long term studies with the same animals (e.g. for toxicological studies). Possibility of aerosol application with Aerosol Nebulizer 73-1963 (must use connecting block for nebulizer and anesthesia attachment 73-0584).
