The STARR-Link is an Analog Data Output Module for the MouseOx Plus that converts the calculated parameters to an analog voltage output. The output voltage range is from 0 to 5 volts.

STARR-Link Analog Output Module Parameters

  • Arterial Oxygen Saturation – Signal output of real-time percent oxygen saturation of arterial hemoglobin
  • Heart Rate – Signal output of real-time cardiac pulse rate output
  • Breath Rate – Updated every few seconds, this signal ouput of breath rate is derived by breathing effort.
  • Pulse Distension – An signal output of the distention of the arterial blood vessels residing between the sensors due to the cardiac output pulse
  • Breath Distension – the signal output of the distention of the arterial blood vessels residing between the sensors due to changes in intra-thoracic pressure associated with breathing.
  • Temperature – Real-time measurement of Rectal Temperature when you purchase the MouseOx® Plus Body Temperature Software option.
  • Activity – Activity signal output is a binary-valued parameter that indicates when the animal is moving versus sitting still when you purchase the Conscious Software option.
  • Subject Number – When using a Multiplexer, Subject # signal output is the number of the animal active on the Multiplexer™.
