Abstract

Recent development of a relatively inexpensive in vivo electrode for monitoring the partial pressure of oxygen (PO2) in adults by International Biophysics Corporation of Irvine, California, prompted us to adapt this system for clinical use in newborn infants. This report describes the final configuration of the monitoring system for neonates, certain in vivo characteristics of the oxygen electrode, its in vivo accuracy, complications of its use and some clinical applications of the system.
