Monitoring of blood pressure and pulse rate offers diagnostical and therapeutical opportunities in hypertension disease and arrhythmia, respectively. This paper presents an intravascular pressure monitoring system consisting of an implantable silicone capsule, which can be placed in an arterial system via a catheter. The capsule contains a pressure sensor and signal conditioning circuits for wireless data and energy transfer using 6.78 MHz transponder technology.
