An experimental study on 12 healthy individuals was conducted over a period of six months, using the transoxode probe to assess cutaneous blood flow via measurements of transcutaneous oxygen tension (Tcp02) and relative heat power input (R.H.P.). The possible clinical use of the probe in peripheral vascular ischaemia was re-evaluated. The results were controlled with those of venous occlusion plethysmography, being a reliable means of assessing peripheral blood flow. The study revealed that changes in Tcp02 did not correlate significantly with alterations in skin perfusion mainly due to the lack of probe sensitivity. The clinical implications of such methods are discussed.
