Abstract
Sensors were tested in vitro and in situ in a clinically relevant model for ACS. Pressure sensors remained functional for thirty days following immersion in saline. The performance of the sensor as a displacement-frequency transducer functioned across a variety of geometries. This gives the sensor has the potential to be adapted to a be a needle injectable pressure sensor in the future. This novel diagnostic tool has the potential to reduce complications and costs after traumatic injury through early, conclusive detection of impending ACS using pressure measurements.
