What are biosensors?
An analytical device which converts a
biological response into an electric signal
A device that detects, records, and
transmits information regarding a
physiological change or process.
Rapidly Expanding Field
External biosensors are already used in
emergency rooms as point-of-care
diagnostic units
Can reveal immediately if a patient is in
cardiac arrest by testing their blood
chemistry
Other uses of Biosensors

Steps into the Future
Implementation into the body
Digital dashboard for bodily functions
Could potentially eliminate long waits in the doctor’s
office
To be manually and wirelessly controlled
Used to detect and treat an acute conditions
Biosensors that can act as an artificial organ


Sense a condition
Respond automatically without user intervention
