Applications

Medical devices must meet the highest standards in terms of quality and reliability. The use of proven Sensirion sensor solutions offers the possibility of making applications safer, more reliable, and more convenient.

Medical

Smart inhalers: Supporting asthma and COPD patients during inhalation

Measuring inhalation flow profiles and monitoring medication delivery with smart inhalers helps prevent application errors and improve disease management.
Medical

Ventilation: Precise, safe ventilation of patients

In addition to air, other gases, in particular oxygen, are used for ventilation by means of ventilators. Sensor technology can be used to precisely control and monitor the respiratory profile and oxygen concentration.
Medical

Drug delivery / infusion: Reliable intravenous or subcutaneous drug delivery

During drug delivery, flow rates and volumes must be measured precisely and malfunctions must be detected quickly and reliably.
Medical

Anesthesia: Anesthesia and ventilation of patients during surgery

In anesthesia, extremely precise control of the gas mixture and concentration (O₂, N₂O) is essential. Equally important is the precisely dosed delivery of the anesthetic.
Medical

CPAP: Preventing breathing cessations in sleep apnea patients

Sensor technology enables precise monitoring of breath and airflow for optimal airway pressure control during respiratory support.
Medical

Heart-lung machine: Takeover of heart and lung function during operations

Precise control of air, oxygen and CO₂ flow and gas mixing.
Medical

High flow ventilation: Heated, humidified high-flow oxygen

High-flow ventilation requires controlling the flow of oxygen to the patient as well as monitoring the humidity and temperature of the supplied air.
Medical

Urine flow: Urine flow measurement for the prevention of acute kidney failure

Continuous urine flow measurement with high-precision fluid flow sensors over an extended period of time enables early detection of acute kidney failure in critically ill patients in intensive care.
Medical

Nitric oxide: Controlled delivery of nitric oxide

In nitric oxide (NO) therapy, precise measurement and control of air-oxygen flow and mixing with NO are essential. In the treatment of pulmonary hypertension, inhaled nitric oxide lowers pulmonary artery pressure and dilates blood vessels.
