Abstract

Transcutaneous Po2 measurements (tcPo2) do not only reflect the arterial oxygenation of blood, but they may also demonstrate changes of peripheral circulation1,2. Two methods are available to measure the influence of peripheral blood flow on tcPo2: The arterial tcPo2 index (tcPo2/Pao2)2,3 and the percentual initial slope index4.
