The sensor is inside a small piece of quartz tubing. The end is melted until it closes up and creates a very smooth round tip. The sensing is done through a very small hole about 0.5mm from the tip on the side.
The catheter can also be customized to leave the end open, so no side hole or rounding of the tip and the sensing is done at the end. The tip is still very smooth at the end. This is normally used for very small vessel’s where the vessel wall might be too close and hit the side sensing.
 
Both ways are fairly durable but care needs to be taken around the tip and the tip should not be grabbed with forceps or tweezers. It should only be handled behind the tip about 1cm back from the tip. If the tip is damaged it would only be from mishandling and can not be repaired.
