Laboratory and clinical tests were carried out to determine the clinical usefulness, validity, and safety of a new self-calibrating, battery-powered monitoring system for the measurement of intramuscular pressure with use of an electronic transducer-tipped catheter. The eight probes accurately recorded applied pressures ranging from zero to 160 millimeters of mercury (zero to 21.33 kilopascals). The system registered little temperature-induced drift (maximum, 1.25 millimeters of mercury [0.17… CONTINUE READING
