Choosing the Right PV Catheter for IH-5 PVL Measurement

Larger hearts often require multi-segment catheters for accurate volume measurement. The minimum size of these catheters is 3 Fr. The IH-5 system can accommodate catheters up to 2 Fr via the dedicated access path; however, for larger hearts it is recommended to instead use the apical puncture method. Since the larger pressure volume catheters have multiple conductance electrodes arrayed at regular intervals, they require the use of the MPVS Multi-Segment Pressure Volume Control Unit. Additionally, due to the variance in the sizes of the left ventricles of larger hearts, the catheters are not pre-packaged with the hardware and the software, and need to be purchased separately.

Choosing the correct PV Catheter requires the knowledge of ventricle size of the rat, guinea pig, or rabbit heart with which you are working. Remove the heart from a typical subject (or from the largest and smallest subjects if you are using a range) you will likely be using for experiments. Cut the heart longitudinally from the aortic valve to the apex of the left ventricle and measure the distance between these two points. Once you know this distance, you will be able to choose the appropriate PV catheter from the options below. Please contact our technical team for assistance to ensure you are choosing the correct catheter.
