Simulators, Transducer Output
Definition : Simulators designed to mimic the electrical signals at the output of transducers used for conversion of a physiologic variable (e.g., pressure, temperature, cardiac output) into an electrical signal. These simulators typically include a pulse generator, electronic circuitry, controls, and a display; they generate signals that can be processed and displayed by a monitoring device in the same way as the output of their own transducers (e.g., as a numerical value and/or waveform representing the physiologic variable). Transducer output simulators are mostly used for testing and/or calibration of monitors, recorders, or measuring devices, excluding the transducer of the device being tested.
