The aim of this study was to validate the V-Sign digital sensor (SenTec AG, Therweil, Switzerland) for combined noninvasive assessment of pulse oxymetric oxygen saturation (SpO2) and transcutaneous carbon dioxide tension (PtcCO2) in adults after cardiac surgery. In twenty one patients, aged 51–86 years, simultaneous measurements of blood gases with the V-Sign Sensor and with two Nellcor Durasensors (model DS-100A), one at the opposite earlobe and one with a finger clip, were compared first… CONTINUE READING
