Introduction


Two Types of the Ultra-Piezo Respiratory Effort Sensors are available. The
ULTRA PIEZO STRAP SENSOR SYSTEM uses elastic velcro straps supplied in a variety of lengths for your specific patient.


A new style ULTRA PIEZO ADHESIVE SENSOR SYSTEM using disposable adhesive strips to retain the reusable sensor on the patient is also available.


Ultra Piezo STRAP Sensor System...



The Ultra-Piezo Respiratory Effort Sensor is intended for use in sleep
disorders studies to measure respiratory effort for monitoring or recording on a physiological recorder. The sensor is designed with a very low profile for
patient comfort. It is suitable for use in sleep labs or home testing.


The Sensor is retained in close proximity to the human body by a one inch
wide elastic Velcro Strap. Straps are supplied in a variety of lengths for your
specific patient.


The Ultra-Piezo Sensor generates a small voltage signal from the normal
expansion and contraction of the chest or abdominal wall. This voltage is
immediately passed through an electronic filter before the respiratory signal is applied onto a physiological monitoring or recording system. Since the sensor generates a voltage when stressed by breathing, no battery is required for operation.


The Ultra-Piezo Sensor has a strong and flexible eight foot long lead wire
terminated with .060 inch (1.5mm) female "safety" connectors for direct
connection to your headbox.


This system is CONVENIENT, COMFORTABLE, AND DURABLE for your sleep disorders testing.


 


Ultra Piezo ADHESIVE Sensor System...






The ADHESIVE SENSOR is a NEW style Respiratory Effort Sensor which uses two disposable adhesive strips to hold the reusable sensor onto the patient instead of the usual strap retentive system. The sensor is placed in the desired location, typically the chest or the abdomen using a strip of double sided adhesive tape. After checking for an adequate respiratory effort signal, the sensor is overlaid with a larger piece of highly flexible tape to secure the
sensor to the patient. Both tapes are specifically designed for adhesion to skin
surfaces for extended periods of time.

expansion and contraction of the chest or abdominal wall. This voltage is
