Paper Abstract

New fluorescence-based disposable probes have been developed for monitoring of pH, carbon dioxide, and oxygen in extracorporeal loops and radial arteries. These low cost, small diameter sensors fit through most standard female Luer Lock fittings. The portable monitor and its interface to the probes are described. In-vitro performance of the sensor systems versus tonometered bovine blood and blood analyzer calibration ampules are shown, along with a brief discussion of clinical applications of these devices.
