Temperature Sensing in Medical Devices

Temperature Sensing in Medical Devices

Medical applications demand the ultimate in reliable and accurate monitoring of critical temperature measurement. From the Amphenol Advanced Sensors family of brands, Thermometrics, Inc., manufactures and designs a wide range of NTC thermistors and non-contact infrared (IR) based temperature sensors for this key market.

As well as standard product offerings, Amphenol Advanced Sensors prides itself in the ability to customize a unique solution for all customer application needs. Whether superior resistance stability, small diameter, tight temperature accuracy, fast response, or all the above are critical for your design, the team is ready to partner with you.

Application Offerings

These instruments are well suited to a range of applications, including:

Cardiac care: This application benefits from small diameter chip-in-glass or glass bead thermistor assemblies designed for continuous cardiac output systems and thermodilution catheters.

Type AB

Type AB

Respiratory care: This application makes use of epoxy-coated or glass diode chip thermistors designed for accurate temperature monitoring of humidifiers and ventilator flow tubes.

Type Glass Diode / Type 95 / Type CR1

Type Glass Diode / Type 95 / Type CR1

Skin surface: Here, interchangeable thermistor assemblies which possess a temperature accuracy of ±0.05 °C at 37 °C are ideal for neonatal incubator systems and continuous patient monitoring.

Type MA

Type MA

Thermometry: This area utilizes IR sensors and interchangeable thermistors during oral, tympanic, rectal, and auxiliary temperature measurements for clinical, predictive, or home thermometers.

Type 65 / Type SC / Type ZTP

Type 65 / Type SC / Type ZTP

Dialysis: Small interchangeable thermistors designed for assembly into metal housings can be employed to monitor fluid temperature throughout dialysis procedures.

Type SC / Type MA

Type SC / Type MA

Surgical: This area benefits from the use of miniature chip-in-glass or sleeved chip thermistors which use fine diameter wires inserted into hypodermic needles to conduct myocardial surgeries. These are also suitable for external attachment to metal lumens which are used during laser surgery.
