  6. How does the monitoring system work?
    • - monitoring involves the sensing of physiological parameters and then turning this into a displace

    • - transducer turn pressure changes into waveform display
    • - pressure transducer- piezoeletric crystal which converts pressure canges into a voltage change then converted to a trace
    • - pressure transducers need to be zeroed against the point at which the catheter tip isassume to rest- for cardiac pressures- normally 4ICS, M.A.L
