Invasive Blood Pressure

Invasive Blood Pressure

Blood pressure is the pressure exerted by blood on the surrounding vessel walls as it is pumped around the cardiovascular system by the heart. The ability to measure continuous arterial and vascular pressure signals directly at the source through invasive blood pressure recordings provides a greater level of data accuracy and sensitivity to support your cardiovascular research.

Ideal for beat-to-beat monitoring of basic, acute and chronic cardiovascular measurements, invasive pressure recordings also allow for assessment of time variance and dynamics of change in data over time. Whether you wish to record and analyze blood pressure in small or large animals, ADInstruments can help you create a solution tailored for your research requirements.

Signals Supported


dP/dt is a signal derived from pressure, typically ventricular blood pressure, that indicates the change in pressure over time.


Accurately measure arterial and vascular pressure signals directly at the source. Invasive pressure recordings also allow to check for time variance and dynamics of change in data over time. Measured parameters may include:

 systolic and diastolic pressure (including mean and end), mean pressure, pulse pressure, dicrotic notch pressure, ejection duration, cycle duration, heart rate, max and min dP/dt and Tau.

Surgical Instruction Video Series

Surgical Instruction Video Series: Pressure Volume (PV) and Invasive Pressure

ADInstruments has been working alongside surgical expert Prof. René Remie, to produce a series of step-by-step instructional videos that demonstrate common Pressure-Volume and Invasive Pressure catheterization procedures.

Each of the 5 videos in the series follows a surgical catheterization procedure from start to finish, and include helpful techniques and tips throughout.

These videos are a unique and valuable resource for researchers performing cardiovascular research in animal models.
