Paper Abstract

Fiber optics, optrodes, and fluorescence spectroscopy have been combined to form the new technology of remote fiber fluorimetry (RFF). Both in-vivo and in-vitro clinical measurements can be made by using this technique. The optrode, a fiber termination with preselected chemical or physical properties, is attached to the distal end of the optical fiber so that specific, in-situ measurements can be made. RFF systems for pH, blood pressure, oxygen, and carbon dioxide are being completed, and other optrodes are in the development stages.
