1. A method for continuously measuring an analyte in an artery of a host in vivo, the method comprising:

  • coupling a continuous analyte sensor with an arterial catheter system applied to a host, wherein the sensor is configured to generate an analyte-related signal associated with an analyte in a sample, and wherein the arterial catheter system comprises an arterial catheter, an infusion fluid, and a pressure system configured to perform at least one of increasing an amount of pressure applied to the infusion fluid and reducing an amount of pressure applied to the infusion fluid;

    reducing the amount of pressure applied to the infusion fluid, such that a sample of arterial blood contacts the sensor; and

    generating the analyte-related signal with the sensor.
