Abstract

Transcutaneous oxygen pressure monitoring has now been widely accepted in neonatal intensive care all over the world with the combination of transcutaneous carbon dioxide pressure monitoring(1). Oxygen pressure obtained at the skin surface is the result of multiple effects such as temperature effect on blood flow, right shift of oxy-hemoglobin dissociation curve, increased diffusion constant, increased consumption at the living layer of epidermis, diffusion constant at contact fluid and the membrane, and consumption at oxygen electrode.
