Experimental findings are presented of an in vivo comparison between a Sentron catheter and another tip transducer manometer: a Millar microtip catheter. Both catheters have been used simultaneously in the left ventricle of dogs. Pressure variations were elicited by drug infusion. Pressure values and derivatives obtained from both systems were compared. A cross correlation between episodes of the two pressures was computed. Results from this study showed good correlation between left… CONTINUE READING
