Transcutaneus PO2 (PtcO2) is suggested to reflect tissue oxygenation in intensive care patients, whereas transcutaneous PCO2 (PtcCO2) is advocated as a noninvasive method for assessing PaCO2. In 24 critically ill adult patients (mean Apache II score 14.2, SD 4.7) we investigated the impact of variables that are commonly thought to determine PtcO2 and PtcCO2 measurements. A linear correlation was found between PtcO2 and PaO2 (r=0.6;p≤0.0001) and between PtcO2 and mean arterial blood pressure… CONTINUE READING
