The human body has a variety of pressure regulated systems that can be monitored effectively with the use of pressure sensor. Applications include the measurement of intravascular pressure (IVP), intracranial pressure (ICP) and intraocular pressure (IOP). As well as tracking contractions during labor with an intrauterine pressure catheter (IUPC), and monitoring intrarenal and intraurethral pressure during ureteroscopy. Furthermore biopsies, emergency surgery and biliary tract surgery can benefit from pressure monitoring.
By utilizing SMI’s ultra-small connected pressure sensor, surgeons can more accurately diagnose symptoms and measure patient’s vitals leading to higher success rates and faster recovery. SMI offers the smallest pressure sensor solutions down to 1-French in size.
