In this paper, the design of a specific integrated circuit for the measurement of tissue impedances is presented. The circuit will be part of a multi-micro-sensor system intended to be used in cardiac surgery for sensing biomedical parameters in living bodies. Myocardium tissue impedance is one of these parameters which allows ischemia detection. The designed chip will be used in a four-electrode based setup where the effect of electrode interfaces are cancelled by design. The chip includes a… CONTINUE READING
