Paper Abstract

The design and realization of an optical sensor for measuring haematic pH during extracorporeal circulation is presented. It consists of a chemical sensing element in contact with the blood, an interrogation optical head to externally probe the sensing element and the front-end electronics to acquire and process the information of interest. The fluorescein O-methacrylate 97% is used as the indicator. The developed system has been tested in-vitro and on an in-vivo animal model. It showed a linear behavior in the haematic range of interest with a mean error lower than 0.01 units of pH.
