Abstract (en)

[origin: WO9715228A1] A dialysis system or the like comprises a housing (12) carrying a dialyzer (14) having a blood inlet (18) and a blood outlet (20). Arterial and venous blood tubing sets (24) (22) are provided for respectively conveying blood between the patient and the dialyzer. At least one blood pressure transducer (44) is also provided, the transducer being carried in a connector outside of the housing (12) and connected to an electrical wire (40) for signal communication with an electronic system (46) within the housing, for determining blood pressure from signals sent by the transducer through the wire, and also for displaying the blood pressure so determined. At least one branch connection site (56) is carried on at least one of the blood tubing sets, which site removably receives the connector and transducer in a manner permitting the transducer to measure the pressure of blood in the one tubing set from a position adjacent to the blood in the tubing set.
