Disposable Solid State Oxygen Sensor
Commercial fabrication of sophisticated O2 sensors at a price allowing single use (disposible catheters) has not yet been realized. The commercial versions, available so far, are the incorporation of simple types, allowing acceptable assessment of O2.
Maintenance and sterilization of conventional electrodes is relatively complicated and contradictory to clinical use.
Sane progress has recently been achieved to prevent intra-arterial thrombotic formations and fibrine deposition (Nilsson et al, 1981) but the problem is not yet entirely solved and may include a severe risk for the patient, either by thrombus itself, or be incorrect assessment of the O2 values. Electrodes with thin membranes (fast electrodes) are able to detect such dangerous situations in an early state (Kreuzer et al, 1980).
