Background: The measurement of CO 2 partial pressure (P CO 2 ) is of great importance. Former systems of transcutaneous capnometry combining the measurement of oxygen partial pressure (P O 2 ) and P CO 2 had their limitations due to skin irritations caused by the heating-up of the sensor and a short application time of 4 h. Objectives: To evaluate for the first time combined monitoring of transcutaneous P CO 2 (tcP CO 2 ) and oxygen saturation applying a lower temperature (sensor temperature 42… CONTINUE READING
