We are pleased to announce the publication of our first video article in the Journal of Visualized Experiments (JoVE). "[...] JoVE is a peer reviewed, PubMed indexed journal devoted to the publication of biological, medical, chemical and physical research in a video format."1

The article, which was produced in collaboration with the Meakins-Christie Laboratories of McGill University, illustrates and describes the steps to perform forced oscillation measurements in mice using the flexiVent. It includes the procedure to adequately prepare the system, tracheotomize, cannulate and mechanically ventilate a mouse, as well as to record lung function measurements. In addition, typical results at baseline and following aerosolized methacholine challenges are presented and discussed.

We invite you to watch the video and to read the article for additional details.

Thank you for coming by our booth at ATS

We have been attending ATS for over 15 years and this year our team was present again to demonstrate our products and discuss with exhibit hall visitors. We were very pleased to see familiar faces from all over the world but also met many new researchers and scientists. We made the most out of our time in Philadelphia by presenting two posters and hosting the Breakfast Symposium: Refining the Dose Response while also attending sessions.

If you didn't get the chance to stop by our posters, please take a look by clicking on the title below to download each one.

A big thank you to the show organizers and everyone we met. We look forward to continuing the conversation!
