OAP is the Optical Arterial Probe used with the B-Capta system made by LivaNova.
The OAP sensor together with the system provides an in-line continuous monitoring of dissolved oxygen in blood.
OAP measures pO2 via an optical fluorescence technology. The UV light from a LED excites the oxygen sensitive element (Oxygen sensor spot) embedded in the arterial cuvettes to emit fluorescence in the red spectral region: the sensor measures the decrease/quenching of the fluorescence signal and correlates the degree of quenching to the arterial oxygen partial pressure of the blood.
|pO2 at actual temperature||50 – 400 mmHg||±10% mmHg||0.1 mmHg (for pO2<100 mmHg)
|1.0 mmHg (for pO2≥100 mmHg)|
|pO2 at 37°C||-||±10% mmHg||0.1 mmHg (for pO2<100 mmHg)|
|1.0 mmHg (for pO2≥100 mmHg)
|Blood temperature||15.0 – 41.0 °C||±1.0 °C||0.1 °C|
|Cuvette connector size||Min flow rate||Max flow rate|
|3/8"||0.2 l/min||8.0 l/min|
|1/4"||0.1 l/min||2.5 l/min|
