Conference paper


The determination of local tissue PO2 on the surface of the brain is now known and established as a method of dealing with physiologic problems in animal experiments [4, 1]. During neurosurgical operations, the local tissue PO2 in the region being operated on was measured for the purpose of establishing a basis for comparable investigations.
