The following paper introduces the problem of noninvasive pressure measurements in Polish artificial heart prosthesis. The pressure sensor is proposed and introduced, and preliminary tests are shown. The paper deals with the proposed sensing elements, requirement noninvasive solution and preliminary tests of polyurethane membrane transmission. The paper includes also experimental results of a fiber pressure sensor introducing noninvasive pressure measurements with pressure transmission through a polyurethane tube wall.
