Description

1. The aim of the present study was to validate a telemetric blood pressure (BP) monitoring system against tail-cuff blood pressure in both adrenocorticotrophic hormone (ACTH)- and sham-treated rats. In the statistical analyses, we first tested whether there was a detectable effect on systolic blood pressure (SBP) of 10 days treatment with ACTH compared with saline. Second, we compared results of telemetered and tail-cuff measurements and, third, we developed a novel method for estimating the...[Show more]
