The CODMAN MICROSENSOR ICP Transducer consists of a miniature strain gauge pressure mounted in a titanium
case at the tip of a 100cm flexible nylon tube. The CODMAN MICROSENSOR transducer monitors intracranial
pressure directly at the source – subdural, parenchymal or intraventricular. Information is relayed electronically
rather than through a hydrostatic column or fiberoptics.

Better Data, Better Decisis…The CoDmAn mICRoSEnSoR ICP Trasducer 
The CODMAN MICROSENSOR ICP Transducer consists o a miniature strain gauge pressure mounted in a titaniumcase at the tip o a 100cm exible nylon tube. The CODMAN MICROSENSOR transducer monitors intracranialpressure directly at the source – subdural, parenchymal or intraventricular. Inormation is relayed electronicallyrather than through a hydrostatic column or fberoptics.

 Accurac
Various studies have been perormedon the CODMAN MICROSENSORtransducer

and demonstrate ahigh correlation between the CODMANMICROSENSOR subdural, parenchymaland ventricular pressure versusstandard ventricular uid pressure asmeasured with an external transducer.
High Fidelity 
The fdelity o the CODMANMICROSENSOR transducer is greaterthan 10,000Hz, allowing orexcellent ICP waveorm analysis.The CODMAN MICROSENSORfdelity was evaluated in a studydemonstrating pulsatile characteristicso high fdelity and greater magnitudethan corresponding ventricular pressurepulse

Direct Pressure Monitoringat the Source
Several procedural kits are available,each oering direct monitoring atthe source – subdural, parenchymalor intraventricular.
Small, Flexible and Low-Profle
The small size and exibility othe CODMAN MICROSENSORnylon tubing allows orlow-profle tunneling underthe scalp and kinking o thenylon catheter without breakageor monitoring disturbance.
