Abstract:
The chimpanzee has been proposed as a possible human analogue for a myriad of human disease states. The lack of knowledge about the cardiovascular system in this animal or the cardiovascular response to stress is understandable because of the cost and handling problems with the chimpanzee. Part of this difficulty, namely handling, can be overcome with the proper selection of cardiovascular instrumentation. Implantable telemetry systems have the advantage that the animal does not have to be handled for any reason. Several animals have been successfully used with implantable telemetry units in the chest. A vigorous antibiotic therapy program must be used for the first few days after surgery, but there have not been any complications after this period of time. The life of the implanted unit has been prolonged by the use of a power switch which also allows remote collection of data. At the present time there is one such unit still functioning 14 months after implantation. The ease with which these units can be used makes them ideally suited for use in the chimpanzee. Examples of the various types of data collected are given and described briefly.
