A system is described for the continuous measurement of blood pressure, heart rate, and motor activity by telemetry in conscious marmosets freely moving in their home cages. Consistent diurnal variations in these parameters were observed under standard conditions, although these parameters were sensitive to changes in the environment. Blood pressure values were similar to those measured by nontelemetric methods in conscious, restrained marmosets. However, heart rate was lower, indicating that… CONTINUE READING
