Summary

A single combined transcutaneous sensor for PO2 and PCO2 was evaluated in a neonatal intensive care unit. The values obtained with the combined sensor were compared with the values obtained with two separate electrodes monitoring respectively PO2 and PCO2. Adequate correlations were found. The combined sensor represents an improvement on individual electrodes as it spares available skin surface and needs less handling.
