Abstract:In this paper a sensor is presented for the detection of carbon dioxide gas inside the stomach in order to diagnose gastrointestinal ischemia. The operational principle of the sensor is measuring the CO/sub 2/ induced pressure generation of a confined pH-sensitive hydrogel by means of a micro pressure sensor. The sensor is capable of measuring CO/sub 2/ with a response time between 2 and 4 minutes and a maximum pressure of 0.29/spl times/10/sup 5/ Pa at 20 kPa CO/sub 2/. The sensor is able to resist up to 1 M HCl acid as can be present inside the stomach. The results are very promising for real application and clinical trials are planned.
