Improved performance of intravascular pO2 sensor incorporating poly(MPC-co-BMA) membrane
- 45 Downloads
The first in vivo evaluation of a pO2 sensor constructed with a novel copolymer is described. The performance of the sensor is assessed under dynamic conditions in vitro and in vivo. This sensor is more stable and reliable than the control sensor with a heparintreated polyethylene membrane.
