Sensors for Medical Applications
In the world of technology, digital machines and devices are as paramount to a clinician’s duty as a stethoscope. From monitoring vitals to ventilators, electronic devices are fundamental to the life of a patient. These devices perform the critical tasks by using highly advanced and accurate sensors installed within them.
For example, ventilators sent high standards for components and the sensors must be highly stable durable and reliable. A variety of sensors are employed in the ventilator – these include airflow sensors that regulate airflow, oxygen sensors that control the percentage of oxygen in the air to be delivered to the patient, pressure sensors that are responsible for the critical inhaling and exhaling process and temperature sensors that modulate the temperature of air
