I developed a thermodilution procedure for cardiac output 
measurement in mice. The device can be used to determine heart 
rate, stroke volume, systolic pressure, diastolic pressure and 
mean pressure. The system has automated injection device with 
computer controlled. I found the cardiac output in mice ranges 
between 10 and 12 ml/min. This procedure will be helpful in 
assessing cardiovascular parameters in transgenic mice research. 
In addition, the device can be used in any animal starting from 
mice to horses. If anybody is interested, please e-mail your 
postal address. I will be happy to send you all information.
