22 studies lasting 3-6h were performed on 10 newborn infants with respiratory illnesses to assess the accuracy of a transcutaneous electrochemical sensor designed by us to estimate PaO2 and PaCO2 simultaneously. The sensor was calibrated in vitro and in vivo. tcPO2 was compared with PaO2 recorded by a Searle intravascular electrode or by a Dräger transcutaneous electrode that we have previously shown to give an accurate estimate of PaO2. tcPCO2 was compared with the PaCO2 of samples of arterial… CONTINUE READING
