Plethysmography is a standard method for studying pulmonary function in conscious, spontaneously breathing laboratory subjects. The barometric plethysmography technique measures flow and pressure changes that occur while the subject is breathing, before and after exposure to a drug or other challenges. It is easily adapted to various subject sizes and species, and is often used for longitudinal studies where the subjects are studied for multiple hours on successive experiment days.

Data acquisition & real-time analysis

iox2 provides advanced data acquisition and real time analysis to manage your experiments. Powerful algorithms are integrated in this platform, allowing for customized protocols and analysis on a breath by breath basis. iox2 is a GLP compliant software that acquires, analyzes, displays, controls and stores data generated during an experiment.

Features & analyzers
  • Real-time analysis and ambulatory monitoring.
  • Flexible tuning analyzers for breath acceptance or rejection (e.g.: rejection ranges can be set for any or all parameters: TV, f, MV, PIF, PEF, etc.).
  • Automated alarms and email alerts for relevant physiologic triggers.
  • Easily configurable trends, data tables, and signal graphs to display detailed information for single or multiple subjects.
  • Replay or review data files.
  • High Definition video signals synchronized with respiratory waveforms.
  • Protocols to automate user workflow and act as experimental guidelines.
  • Apnea and cough detection.
  • Respiratory flow (RF) analyzer for ventilatory parameters.
  • Dual-chamber respiratory flow (DCRF) analyzer for specific airway resistance.
  • Multiple independent physiologic channels can be captured simultaneously for high throughput.
  • Links to emka TECHNOLOGIES and DSI telemetry.
