Application of pressure sensors in the medical industry
Minimally invasive surgery can not only reduce the trauma of the surgical site, but also greatly reduce the pain of the patient, and the recovery process is also fast. To meet this requirement, in addition to the doctor's surgical operation experience, it also works with various medical monitoring equipment. Many medical devices used for this operation are tiny, like various catheters and ablation devices. Catheters include thermodilution catheters, urethral catheters, esophageal catheters, central venous catheters and intracranial pressure vessels. In addition to their conductive functions, the catheters are equipped with temperature or pressure sensors, which provide an important guarantee for the smooth progress of patient pathological examinations and minimally invasive surgery. , Temperature and pressure parameters are the key parameters for successful operation.
The ability of the sensor to be placed close to the patient is critical for many applications. For example, in dialysis applications, it is very important to accurately measure dialysate and venous pressure. The pressure sensor must be able to accurately monitor the pressure of the dialysate and blood to ensure that it remains within the set range.
