Research Facts
Transducers are used to accurately measure the pressure and velocity of fluid movement out of the
bladder and urethra; electronic sensors located at the distal end of a catheter send information
to the pressure transducers which in turn send signals to a computer or other type of data acquisition
system (p. 2 of product manual)
