IntraSense offers the potential for increased patient safety in many endoscopic applications. Pressure can indicate if the procedure is going according to plan. Point-of-use pressure measurement provides the best data to the physician to confirm patient safety. Silicon is inherently sensitive to bright lights, and shifts in output can accompany changes in light intensity. IntraSense is available in a special light-blocking version, which minimizes the effects of bright light on the performance of the sensor, thereby providing the best possible accuracy. IntraSense also provides point-of-use guidance in insufflation for the most pressure-sensitive applications.
