Paper Abstract

We evaluate the performance of ODISseyTM Tissue Oximeter (ViOptix, Inc., Fremont, CA) against co-oximeter. Concurrent oxygen saturation measurements were made in three dog limbs surgically removed and perfused with an extracorporeal blood circulation system. Oxygen saturation was adjusted in steps ranging from 95% down to 5% as monitored by the co-oximeter. The co-oximeter was used to measure the oxygen saturation of the whole blood drawn from both the arterial and the venous ports of the limb. The tissue oxygenation measured by the ODISseyTM tissue oximeter was compared with the average of the arterial and the venous blood oxygenation measured by the co-oximeter. Linear correlation was observed between the average oxygenation given by the co-oximeter and the ODISseyTM readings, with a root-mean-square difference of 7.6% and the correlation coefficient of 0.941, calculated from N = 194 data points.
