Paper Abstract

This paper reviews the history and current state of the art of fiber optic sensors as applied to biochemical measurements in living systems. Techniques for measuring blood oxygen saturation, pH, PCO2, glucose, and other chemicals found in body fluids are described. The potential advantages of the optical techniques are discussed and some commercial as well as research activities are described.
