About this product

Division: Codman Neuro
Category: Neuro Critical Care

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 fiber optics.

CODMAN Microsensor ICP Transducer

Indications for Use

Use of the CODMAN MICROSENSOR Basic Kit and CODMAN MICROSENSOR Skull Bolt are indicated when direct intracranial pressure (ICP) monitoring is required. The kit is indicated for use in both subdural and intraparenchymal pressure monitoring applications only.

Use of the CODMAN MICROSENSOR Catheter Kit is indicated when direct intracranial pressure (ICP) monitoring is required. The kit is indicated for use in intraventricular pressure monitoring and cerebral spinal fluid (CSF) drainage applications.

Features & Benefits

Features Benefits
Small, Flexible and Low-Profile
  • The small size and flexibility allows for low-profile tunneling under the scalp and kinking of the transducer without breakage or monitoring interruption.
MR Conditional
  • The CODMAN MICROSENSOR ICP Transducer is MR conditional and may be imaged in the MR environment when used in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions for use.
  • Critically ill neurosurgical patients may benefit from the additional information gained through MR imaging for planning therapy and predicting outcomes.
Elimination of Maintenance Requirement Associated with Fluid Coupled Systems
  • The CODMAN MICROSENSOR ICP Transducer eliminates the need for constant alignment of the transducer to the patient’s head and periodic re-zeroing. False readings associated with obstructions, air bubbles or movement of the patient fluid lines are no longer a concern.
