Pulse Oximetry and Transcutaneous Oxygen Tension for Detection of Hypoxemia in Critically Ill Infants and Children
Transcutaneous PO2 electrodes are now widely used for monitoring oxygenation1–3. Within the last years pulse oximetry (tcSaO2) has also become available and several studies have demonstrated its reliability between 70 and 100% saturation4–8.
