Abstract

In 23 patients 18 to 73 years old transcutaneous\({\text{P}}_{{\text{O}}_{\text{2}} } \), relative local perfusion and cardiorespirogram during induction and end stage of anaesthesia were monitored. This method allows continuous sufficiently exact estimation of\({\text{Pa}}_{{\text{O}}_{\text{2}} } \).

The comparison between\({\text{tcP}}_{{\text{O}}_{\text{2}} } \) and corresponding blood gas analysis from arterial samples showed a good correlation of r = 0.94. Thus continuous\({\text{tcP}}_{{\text{O}}_{\text{2}} } \) registration enables quick diagnosis of hypoxia and its therapy.
