Invasive Blood Pressure Monitoring

Deltran® Disposable Blood Pressure Monitoring Transducers

In critical care situations, when quick changes in blood pressure are expected or when a critically ill patient requires long-term blood pressure measurement and blood sampling, use of the Deltran® invasive blood pressure monitoring system provides the accuracy of measurement at the arterial source and the convenience of continual pressure measurement and access to the blood source. The procedure involves placing a cannula needle into an artery. This intra-arterial cannula is connected to a fluid-filled system of tubing where a solid column of fluid connects arterial blood to the Deltran® disposable pressure transducer. The transducer is connected to a pressure monitor that displays the blood pressure data graphically on screen and chart paper.


The Deltran® is a Disposable Pressure Monitoring System with integral flush device and stopcock.


  • Consistent and accurate readings during monitoring.
  • Components that simplify setup.
  • The transducer can easily be mounted on either the patient, bed or IV pole.
  • Fully integrated flow-thru component design simplifies filling and debubbling.
  • Versatile, dual function Snap-Tab™ allows dynamic response testing.
  • Superior fluid path visualization.
  • 3cc or 30cc per hour flow rates.
  • With a variety of interface cables available, Deltran® can be connected to most types of monitors.


The Deltran® Disposable Pressure Monitoring System is intended for use in physiological pressure measurements which require continuous flow to maintain catheter patency.
