These Pressure-Volume (PV) catheters for rabbits and cats are for use with Millar's MPVS Ultra Pressure-Volume Systems. These catheters combine pressure sensors and electrodes for simultaneous high fidelity pressure and volume measurements, enabling minimally invasive, continuous, intracardiac pressure-volume analysis. These catheters are all made of nlyon, have a straight or pigtail tip. and low profile pressure connector.

  • High torque catheter body
  • 2 to 6 French size in single- or dual-field configuration
  • Pressure and volume measurement from a single instrument
  • Multi-segment to ensure accurate volume measurement in hearts of varying sizes
  • High frequency response
  • Pressure measurement at the source
  • No motion artifact or damping of pressure signal

Small animal PV models for rabbits and cats feature straight tips and are 3 F in size. They are available in single- or dual-field configurations with 10 electrodes. 

Millar also offers Pressure-Volume catheters configured for an apical approach. Please contact Harvard Apparatus Technical Support to select the appropriate catheter and interface cable.

NOTE: These catheters require a the MPVS Ultra Multi-Segment Control Unit as well as the appropriate interface cables to your selected data acquisition system. Please contact Harvard Apparatus Technical Services if you would like assistance in selecting the appropriate electrode and monitor cables. These catheters are warranted for five uses or sixty days, whichever occurs first and are not repairable.
