We have developed method and computer for mesuring Cardiac
Output by thermodilution in mice and rats. Injection of cold
indicator (in mice 20-30 ul, room temp.) is done in vena cava.
Measurment of temperature change is donne in aortic arch. In rats
indicator volume is 100 to 150 ul. Thermodilution microprobe is
F1 in size for mice, F1.5 in rats. If you are interested I
can send you description by mail. Please e-mail your street
address as info. is in printed form. We have number of reference
papers on use of this method and equipment.
