A comparative study was conducted to evaluate the feasibility of a fiber-optic sensor in invasive blood pressure measurements. Static and wide-bandwidth stimuli were offered to the fiber-optic, Millar, Baxter, and Sentron devices to measure static transfer function and transient response. Animal experiments focused on offset drift, dynamic accuracy, and electromagnetic sensitivity. Compared to the Millar, Sentron, and Baxter devices, the fiber-optic sensor had a near-identical static transfer… CONTINUE READING
