In recent years Polarographic measurements of local oxygen tension in tissue has been developed as a most reliable method for evaluation of oxygen supply to tissue and microcirculation (Bicher and Bruley, 1973, Grote et al., 1976, Kessler et al., 1973). Apart from its high experimental value this method seems to be of great clinical importance for measurements in patients as shown recently for human skeletal muscle (Kunze, 1967, Schönleben et al., 1976) and the kidney (Sinagowitz et al., 1976, Sinagowitz and Golsong, 1977). This paper deals with further experiences in measuring local tissue PO2 in patients.
