Sensor System

No organ telemetry system would work without sensors. In order to observe the state of the lung within the closed mCM a set of multiple sensors is included into the system. Parameters like temperature, flow and pressure are measured constantly and send to the wireless telemetric unit. The use of these sensors is highly influenced by biomedical application conditions. Sterilizability, robust setup and transportability are just some of the main requirements these sensors have to fulfil. The sensor system and its setup have to be modular and flexible, as new sensors and new requirements have to be enabled and included easily. As the mCM also includes the fluid reservoir the entire sensor system has to be designed in a water tight way.
