flexiVent Methods & Protocol

» 

The flexiVent goes beyond traditional resistance and compliance measurements, and captures crucial details about the mechanical properties of conducting airways, terminal airways and parenchyma. The flexiVent achieves the highest sensitivity and reproducibility by precisely controlling experimental conditions.

Access our standard operating procedure to obtain forced oscillation measurements of respiratory mechanics in anesthetized mice and to assess airway responsiveness to methacholine.
