Abstract

The measurement of cardiovascular blood pressure through a catheter has a big impact for monitoring physical parameters of critical patients. Fiber optics provides a valuable alternative to traditional sensing technologies, whereas small size, high performance and MRI compatibility are key advantages [1]. Size plays a fundamental role in the choice of sensing probe; by reducing probe dimensions it is possible to reduce the invasiveness or improve the form factor of the probe, extending sensing capability.
