Abstract:

AN ELECTROCHEMICAL, CATHETER-MOUNTED GAS SENSOR IS PROPOSED FOR CONCURRENT AND INDEPENDENT MEASUREMENTS OF PCO(2) AND PO(2) IN BLOOD. THIS SENSOR WILL ALSO BE INVESTIGATED FOR THE SIMULTANEOUS MEASUREMENT OF PN(2)O. THE CO(2) AND O(2) MEASUREMES WILL BE OF INTEREST FOR VENTILATION MANAGEMENT, ACID-BASE BALANCE AND BASIC RESEARCH, WHILE A SENSOR WITH CAPABILITY FOR N(2)O SENSING COULD BE VERY HELPFUL IN THE OPERATING ROOM TO DETERMINE THE ANESTHETIC DEPTH. THE PRINCIPLE OF THE SENSOR IS BASED ON THE DETERMINATION OF THEAMOUNT OF "REDUCED-CO(2)" ABSORBED ON THE PT WORKING ELECTRODE RING. PO(2) IS OBTAINED BY MEASURING THE O(2) REDUCTION LIMITING CURRENT IN A WELL-DEFINED POTENTIAL REGION. THE PCO(2) AND PO(2) MEASUREMENTS CAN BE MADE AT A HIGH SAMPLING WITHOUT MUTUAL INTERFERENCE.
