An innovative sensing tube with an integrated piezoelectric flow sensor to measure flow rate in portal vein during liver transplantation has been developed and characterized in this work. This smart tube aims to measure flow rates in the portal vein in a real-time continuous format with high reliability. The PVDF-TrFE piezoelectric flow sensor integrated in… CONTINUE READING
