The Integrative Cardiovascular Physiology Core Laboratory (ICP) will support cardiovascular research using large research animal (e.g. rabbit, canine, porcine) models of human diseases. The core will provide both equipment and staffing support to assist investigators in the DHLRI. Equipment is available for cardiac echocardiography, hemodynamic and electrophysiology studies.
The core has the following equipment available:
1) GE Vivid 7 Echocardiograph
2) GE Mac-Lab IT hemodynamic and Cardiolab Electrophysiology amplifier with RF ablation interface and Image capture capability Bloom Four Channel Programmable Stimulator GE C-arm fluoroscope.
