The standard clinical method for the assessment of viability in ischemic small intestine is still visual inspection and palpation. This method is non-specific and unreliable, and requires a high level of clinical experience. Consequently, viable tissue might be removed, or irreversibly damaged tissue might be left in the body, which may both slow down(More)
An electrode created with maskless metallization of Cu tracks ablated with laser direct structuring on a liquid crystal polymer can never achieve a quality comparable to sputtered layers on silicon, but has the advantage of being molded into complex 3D structures. As these electrodes on molded interconnected devices can function as conductometric sensors(More)
Insufficient blood supply to the organs is the major cause of morbidity and mortality worldwide. This condition must be detected early to avoid irreversible loss of function and tissue death as occurs with for instance myocardial infarction, stroke and many other diseases. It has been shown that CO<sub>2</sub> tension in tissue is a valid variable for(More)
OBJECTIVE Bioimpedance has been used to investigate changes in electrical parameters during ischemia in various tissues. The small intestine is a multi-layered structure, with several distinct tissue types, and ischemia related changes occur at different times in the different intestinal layers. When investigating how the electrical properties in the small(More)
