Abstract

The measurement of tissue-pO2 with multiwire surface electrodes developed by Kessler and Lubbers (1) is a well known method in the physiological research. We as clinicians see the importance of local pO2-measurement in getting a totally new parameter, which cannot be received from any usual clinical investigation. We get important hints about the situation in the microcirculation, whose quality is decisive for the survial of critically ill patients.
