MEMS based detection of airbubble & flow in Liquids for Biomedical Devices


The Swiss sensor manufacturer Sensirion introduces the new flow and air bubble detector for the detection of LG01 low liquid flow rates and air bubbles. The small and light sensor is particularly suitable for integration in bio-medical applications and solutions for process engineering. The sensor detects flow rates in a range of several ml / min or less and responds with a response time of ms under 100. The output signal of either 0 or 5 V indicating whether the flow rate is currently above or below a specified threshold. At constant flow rates above the threshold, the sensor can be used alternatively for the detection of air bubbles in the river channel. According Sensirion increases the reliability of fluid systems with a maximum flow rate up to 220 ml / min.

What Is the Best Way To Measure Cardiac Output?

Despite recent controversies regarding its safety and efficacy, pulmonary artery catheterization
(PAC) remains a widely used tool for the management of patients with cardiovascular instability. In addition to providing measurements of cardiac out-put (CO), several other potentially useful pieces of data can be obtained, including estimates of preload,afterload, and oxygen utilization. However, many practitioners feel that CO is the most useful parameter obtained with PAC.The desire to measure CO without the risks of PAC has driven the search for other, less invasive measurement methods, such as esophageal Doppler measurements, lithium dilution, and carbon dioxide based techniques.

Factors Influencing Cardiac Output



An infant incubator is used mainly to keep a baby’s core temperature stable at 37 degrees Celsius. Most incubators also humidify the air and can add extra oxygen.
