Abstract
The development of fiber optic sensors for medical applications originated nearly twenty years ago 1-2 and has been expanding ever since. The success of these sensors is a result of the simplicity of the sensorphysician interface and their notable degree of reliability and biocompatibility. Fiber optic sensors fully satisfy the requisite of biocompatibility, i.e., they do not adversely affect the body nor are they adversely affected by it3 .
