Clinical Use of a New Intra-Arterial Catheter Electrode System
Until the recent development of continuously recording oxygen electrodes, the clinical monitoring of blood oxygen tensions depended on the findings from isolated blood specimens. The acquisition of such data was limited, expensive and often unreliable because of the unavoidable delay between sampling and reading.
