  • Publication number: 20140270623
    Abstract: The present invention relates to optical fiber pressure sensors. In one embodiment, liquid pressure of an environment may be measured based on capillary action occurring within an optical fiber having one or more hollow columns within. In another embodiment, the change in environmental pressure may be measured based on light diffracted from an optical fiber having optical grating. In either embodiment, the pressure sensor is manufactured from a single optical fiber.

  • Patent number: 8317715
    Abstract: There is herein described a catheter for measuring a pressure in a cardiovascular system. The catheter comprises: a guiding tube adapted for insertion into the cardiovascular system. The guiding tube defines a lumen for sliding a guidewire therethrough. The catheter further comprises a tip pressure sensor eccentrically mounted relative to the guiding tube and a signal communication means extending therefrom. The tip pressure sensor is for sensing a pressure in the cardiovascular system and the signal communicating means is for transmitting a signal indicative of the pressure to a processing device in order to obtain a pressure measurement reading.

  • Publication number: 20090088725
    Abstract: The present invention provides a medical system including a protective sleeve for a medical device having a distal end positionable in a blood vessel, the protective sleeve including a body defining a passage therethrough and a vent in fluid communication with the passage, where at least a portion of the distal end of the medical device is positionable within the passage. An introducer device may be included having a sheath, where the sheath defines a first passage for receiving a portion of the catheter. In addition, the sleeve may be releasably engageable with the introducer device for subsequent insertion of the medical device into the introducer device.
