Abstract

The mass spectrometer equipped with a diffusion catheter can detect partial pressures of gases in tissues and blood vessels. The catheter consists of a small gauge stainless steel conduit with small openings at one end covered by a thin teflon or silicone membrane. The entire catheter can be inserted through the lumen of a sixteen gauge needle.
