Thin Ring PO2 Electrode Using Gold Paste and Its Application to the Study of the Effects of Venous Occlusion on Skin PO2
Elevation of venous pressure produces a rapid increase of capillary pressure to a level above the pressure in the veins (Landis and Pappenheimer, 1963). When capillary pressure is raised capillaries which were previously closed may open, resulting in an increase of oxygen transport to peripheral tissue. To examine this possibility we constructed a rapidly responding PO2 electrode using gold paste.
