ABSTRACT
Hypoxic and ischemic states are the main problem makers in angiology and vascular surgery. It is therefore suggestive to employ the technique of tissue-pO2) measurement for the verification and support of diagnostic and therapeutic measures. Two forms of registration are possible: continuous monitoring of partial oxygen pressures in eight different places and registration in the form of pO2-histograms, which represents a kind of "representative opinion poll" held in the tissue. The effects of a surgical intervention (endarterectomy, bypass operation) and the efficacy of blood flow-promoting drugs were studied in several series. In 9 patients the effect of the blood flow-promoting agent pentoxifylline (3,7-dimethyl-1-(5-oxohexyl)-xanthine) was studied. The pO2-histograms exhibited a shift to the right by an average of 7 mmHg after administration of this drug. Moreover, findings obtained with sodium nitroprusside and nitroglycerin during induced hypotension indicate that the continuous measuring of tissue-pO2 and recording of oxygen pressure distribution curves (pO2-histogram) provide the clinician with essential guidance data for the improvement of diagnostics and therapeutic control.
