ABSTRACT
The platinum-multiwire-surface electrode after Kessler and Lübbers gives the opportunity of direct measuring of the local tissue-pO2-pressure; this 8-wire electrode with a Pt-wire-diameter of 15 µm operates on the polarographic principle. Each Pt-wire has a hemispheric collecting area of about 30 µm. Pressure ischemia by compression of capillaries is prevented by proportioning the weight (2.1 g) of the electrode. Data output is done by 1) continuous pO2 measuring; 2) pO22 histograms. During the continuous pO22 measurement the electrode stays on the tissue measuring point thus enabling the direct record of quickly proceeding reactions. The pO22-histogram exhibits the statistical distribution of the local partial oxygen pressures in a studied organ, a quasi sample inquiry is performed in the tissue, based on minimum 100 single values that are obtained by repeated manual repositioning of the electrode. By this, values are obtained on the level and distribution of local pO21 in the tissue so that condition and function of the microcirculation can be objectively assessed. Immediate alterations in the local tissue pO2 suggest regulatory adjustment after hemodynamic changes. Technical problems connected with pO2 measurement in clinical use (sterilization, data acquisition and presentation) are described. The presented technique gives the chance to exactly assess the effects of vasoactive drugs on the microcirculation and to quantify the results of operations, for example after bypass-surgery.

    A definition of the term "circulation" is presented. It refers to the flow of blood as it is pumped by the heart to all the tissues of the body and then back to the heart. Oxygen-rich blood is carried away from the heart by the arteries while the blood that is low in oxygen is returned to the...
