The Laboratory of Integrative Vascular and Exercise Physiology (LIVEP) was created to conduct cutting-edge research incorporating both aspects of cardiovascular and exercise physiology. The LIVEP is housed under the school of Medicine at Georgia Health Sciences University, in the Georgia Prevention Institute, a division of Pediatrics

The LIVEP is about 600 sq ft and includes cutting edge devices and integrated data processing equipment. We have a GE Logiq e and 2 GE Logiq 7 ultrasounds, a Parvo Medics TrueOne metabolic cart, a Quinton 12 lead stress EKG system, a Nonin bluetooth pulse oximeter, 2 Lode integrative cycle ergometers, a custom plantar flexion device, a biopac system with wireless integration, pulmonary function, and blood drawing capabilities.

Mission: Our mission is to conduct cutting-edge research that integrates cardiovascular and exercise physiology with an ultimate goal of understanding and improving the health and well being of our surrounding communities
