Paper Abstract

An overview of commercial sensors, transducers, monitors and computer systems for arterial pressure and intracranial pressure monitoring has been made in this paper. Similar technical specifications of the devices (measurement range, sensitivity, accuracy) have been emphasized, as well as a variety of structural solutions influencing their static and dynamic parameters. A computer based test stand for checking dynamic properties of pneumatic pressure transducers is presented. It enables tests in a full range of amplitude and frequency change, visualization and comparative analysis of sensor responses for various supply conditions. Exemplary waveforms are shown and initial conclusions concerning sensor features are drawn.
