Tissue factor pathway inhibitor prevents airway obstruction, respiratory failure and death due to sulfur mustard analog inhalation

… Pulse oximetry. Oxygen saturation was monitored using the MouseOx oximeter (Starr Life Science, Pittsburgh, PA). The large rat (300 g) sensor collar was used. Three measurements per time point were taken. Fibrin immunohistochemistry. … Sulfur mustard (SM) inhalation causes airway injury, with enhanced vascular permeability, coagulation, and airway obstruction. The objective of this study […]

A New Device to Mimic Intermittent Hypoxia in Mice

… Pulse oxygen saturation levels were recorded using an oximeter placed around the animal’s neck. This device integrates a spectrophotometer and a photoplethysmograph (Collar Clip TM , MouseOx® with Software 6.20; Star™ Life Sciences Corp. Oakmont, PEN). … Intermittent hypoxia (hypoxia-reoxygenation) is often associated with cardiovascular morbidity and mortality. We describe a new device which […]
