Abstract

Tissue PO2 and blood flow through gastrocnemius muscle and overlying subcutis were continuously determined in patients undergoing major vascular surgery for abdominal aneurysm or arteriosclerotic occlusive disease. Polarographic oxygen detection using paired flow-dependent and independent electrodes in each tissue allowed on-line computation of blood flow during the intraoperative and immediate perioperative periods.
