1. In oxygen breathing under ordinary conditions cylindrical electrodes of the examined sizes reflect the partial pressure of oxygen in tissues.

2. In oxygen breathing at high pressure small cylindrical electrodes with diameters of 0.17, 0.31, and 0.59 mm reflect tissue pO2 and the 0.93-mm-diam. electrode, the pO2 of mixed (arteriovenous) blood.

3. Cylindrical electrodes are preferable for measuring pO2 of tissue.
