Adult mice will be anesthetized and the PA-C10 telemetry device (available from Data Sciences International) will be placed SQ and anchored with suture to the abdominal muscle wall in a location that will not hinder the animal’s mobility. The catheter tip will be inserted into the animal’s left carotid artery and advanced so that it enters the aorta. Animals will be allowed to recover for at least seven days before the onset of testing. The PA-C10 device will measure physiological variables such as blood pressure, heart rate, pulse pressure and activity.
