Large Animal PV Catheters

Variable Segment Length Catheters to Fit Any Heart

Transonic Scisense Pressure Volume Catheters for large animals range in size from 3.5F to 7.0F to span the entire range of heart sizes from rabbits to cows. These Catheters provide cardiac researchers the unique ability to measure almost every imaginable hemodynamic and contractile index of ventricular function with a single instrument. Variable Segment Length Catheters provide excellent flexibility in matching ventricle sizes. All 7.0F Catheters are available with an optional lumen to allow drug administration, blood sampling or guide wire insertion.
