Transcutaneous blood gas (TCBG) analysis is a noninvasive alternative method of estimation of blood gas tensions. The objective of the study reported here was to validate this method against standard blood gas (STBG) analysis in adult and juvenile Sprague-Dawley rats. We sought to establish the optimal TCBG probe site and temperature, to establish probe temperatures that would not cause thermal burns, to evaluate correlations between blood gas values (PaCO2 and PaO2) determined by use of TCBG… CONTINUE READING
