Diametrics Medical has received FDA 510(k) clearance to market its Paratrend 7+ multiparameter sensor for continuous monitoring of blood gases in critically ill adult and paediatric patients. The device uses a fluorescent optical sensor for monitoring oxygen, replacing the electrochemical version of its predecessor. The sensor also incorporates a user friendly "dial in" mechanism, allowing it to be into an artery using just one hand.
